Still Battling

3 Jan

Alex is still quite sick, but I think we’re finally on the upswing.  After 4 straight days of refusing all milk, I got him to drink his morning sippy today.  And despite the steroids he has to take for RSV, which have turned him into a wild child, he’s back to his normal napping schedule.  This has been a rough week, as we’ve had to stay vigilant and deal with the frequent meltdowns that occur because he doesn’t feel well and he’s taking steroids.  (Just one more day, just one more day, just one more day…)

Alex goes back to the doctor on Friday to get checked out again.  Based on the fact that he still has most of his symptoms, I suspect he’ll continue to test positive for RSV, but I’m hoping the strep test will be negative this time.  He acts like he feels better, so I hope this is reality and not a temporary illusion.  If you would, please, say a prayer for our boy.  He’s as tired of being sick as we are of dealing with illness.  Cabin fever has hit full force.

In the meantime, we’ve been attempting to get this house in better order.  After living here nearly 8 months, we finally tackled the closets over Christmas break.  I’ll share more in a later post about what Steven did to our bedroom closets, but I’ll leave you with a picture of the coat closet, which finally got unpacked this week.  (It was never unpacked before now because our closets couldn’t hold all our stuff, so the overflow was in the coat closet.  That’s all remedied now.)
