Chaos of Home Life

Somedays...those long boring days at the hospital seem okay! Not really...but life is hectic right now! Again...we were experiencing technical difficulties and had our computer "in the shop" for a cleanout...guess it is pretty messed up and we need to totally start over with need to get external hard drive and more gig of memory! I have no idea what all this means..but it should help our computer.

Kate has been a little fussy today...not sleeping real well! In fact both kids were up to stay at 6 am...that was after Kate and I finally made it to bed at 1:45 and were up several times through the night because of her O2 stats! Thank God for Nana who came to the rescue this afternoon so I could get a nap!

Add in that our dryer is totally caked full of lint (now fixed thanks to Gayle and Art), I have October baskets to get out this week, numerous calls to insurance agencies and pharmacies to get her Synagis shot figured out (that is her $1600 a month shot she needs through the winter months to help prevent her from getting RSV...her first one needs to be early October...aren't we there now?).. the normal chores of life... things are crazy around here. We even had dinner at my parents and I now have "Reen" back to the rescue tonight to watch Kate while I get stuff done..I tell you...I couldn't do it without my support team! YOU ARE ALL AWESOME! And...thank you Jesus that Seth was an absolute doll this evening...maybe due to a 2 hour nap...but still...he was just SO CUTE!

Oh yeah...and just to add a little stress to our lives...Kate decides to have a fever tonight! we are "on hold" and praying she will make it through the night without spiking again over 101 so that we can just go back to our trusty Dr. Jim in the morning instead of the ER at who knows what hour of the morning.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I feel better!!! Well...Kate is screaming for Maureen and I have more work on the baskets....will fill you in..prayerfully from home tomorrow!
Love to all!

Here's hoping that Kate's fever resolves and you all get some much needed rest.

Hugs for the Trudge, Susan

Gosh, no easy days for the Layman family are there? Praying that Kate's fever was a fluke and that she's feeling better now and you have remained home and away from those nasty hospitals! Take care and keep updating!

Hey! Keeping you guys in prayer! Know all too much about the Syngies shots! Yours are a $1,000 cheaper than ours was! But they felt so much like a safety net for us last winter! Praying for a day of peace in your home! Heartfully, Jenny
