I figured out what I was going to blog about yesterday. I was quite scared. Justin was sitting there and I had a vitamin out for him and one for Joey. Justin always gives Joey's vitamin to him, and yesterday he ate it.
You may think - no big deal - except he already ate his. I was able to pull about 1/3 of it out of his mouth but he ingested the rest and it was a vitamin for 4 year olds.
There really is such a thing as iron poisoning and if your child eats too many vitamins, he can really die. A call into the nurse and doctor was what I needed to rest my mind - he would be fine. They wanted to make sure I absolutely knew he didn't eat anymore, which I knew he didn't because I'm the one who gets them out of the jars and I only got one of each out.
They said just skip tomorrow vitamin and he should be fine. Phew. That was a major relief.
Then last night Justin had a croupy cough.
This morning when Justin woke up the cough was really bad. It was a constant bark and the poor kid could hardly catch his breath before more and more came.
I decided to take him to the doctor. I knew there isn't much they can do for croup but I knew my poor kid couldn't tough out the weekend coughing non-stop!
They doctor there said his lungs sound fine but gave him a steroid and a cough medicine to help with the consistent coughing. He took one dose and it helped so much he almost completely stopped coughing! Whew!
Oh and Ike. I should have known he would miss us. Joey had a birthday party for a girl in his preschool class on the east side of our town and they got slammed - heavy winds and rain pouring down.
I called Desiree on the way home and she says our part of town hardly got any of that. Hardly any rain or wind. I should have know - our side of town ALWAYS misses the storm. Yet again Michigan will get more rain and wind from Ike than I will in Dallas!!! What the heck?!
At least I can be thankful for no damage to my home and the fact I still have power on!
Oh and I was trying to keep track of my 800th post and guess what? This is 803. I missed the 800th! Well happy 800+ post to me anyhow! Whoohoo!
