The Hardest Day So Far...
-a construction site through our walk
- winter walk over the bridge
- Hazel sporting HK from auntie Brig
Pictures from Sunday-it was windy and muddy, but we went for our first family stroll!
Monday was the dreaded first vaccine visit. As much as I thought I knew and understood- I still felt very lost and confused. We planned to give her only the DTap- but gave her 2 others. Our doc is aware we don't want everything- it just seems too much now- so we opted out on Polio & the Rotavirus for her 4 month.I am also not comfortable with the Hep B or Chickenpox. This really is a terrible decision to have to make. I picked up infant Tylenol as recommended by our doc and was amazed that it has High Fructose Corn Syrup! I don't care what those commercials say or whose feelings I hurt( the silly commercials about the mothers at the kids b-day party)- that stuff is no good! But what do you do? I'll have to look into an alternative fever med for infants. Nothing is easy! Hazel slept through a slight fever last night and seems in much better spirits today.
Tomorrow at 6:45am I go for a Pelvic/Abdominal Ultrasound. My stomach issues are not getting any better and now it is even more difficult to deal with while caring for an infant. I pray that this new Gastro doc can find some medication to help- in the mean time I've started taking Digestive Advantage IBS maybe this will work.
In Hoboland- Our Desmond Shirts will be in the shoppe either Sunday or Monday! Keep your eyes peeled~
Happy B-day Vanessa xo
