Allie has most definitely improved from one week ago. Her cough and runny nose are basically gone. She has used the inhaler, which was an exciting experience for sissies. Emily was constantly asking us when Allie was going to "use her mask."
(Please note that this photo was taken after the fact to show Allie what she looked like.)
When I arrived home from work last Thursday night to a plethora of medicine and equipment on the kitchen counter, I asked Grammy what instructions she was given with respect to Allie using the inhaler. Emily was standing there and chimed in, "She puts it on her face and then you puff it and then she takes two breaths." Emily loves to play doctor so she was very interested in this new mask.
Anna had a snotty nose Friday night that continued throughout the weekend. She was acting and eating like she normally does so I simply wrote it off as that time of the year. During the day on Monday, her eyes became all red and gunky. Emily, of course, was asking if Anna had pink eye. We still had some eye drops from the eye incident(s) six months ago so I gave her two in each eye that night.
Her left eye was glued shut on Tuesday morning but during the day, all went back to normal. She's still snotty and now grumpy because she was awake for about an hour in the middle of the night last night. I was hoping that she didn't have pink eye especially after Allie stuck her finger in the gunk in Anna's eye. Awesome.
So I'm fairly positive that I broke a toe (or a bone in my toe) back in September. I was shopping with all three girls at Jo-Ann and Allie pushed the cart into my foot. I was wearing flip flops and I remember some pain but nothing like when I broke a little toe ten years ago. I didn't think much of it until I couldn't walk around barefoot without that toe hurting and/or feeling loose. That's the best word I can come up with to describe it.
It is finally feeling better this week. My excuses for not running keep piling up and potential broken toe was added to the list. I need some energy.
My sewing machine
Grammy cleaned it out for me on Monday and my tension issues have resolved. The zig zag stitch once again looks zig zag instead of crazed.
(Oh, yeah. Disclaimer. If you steal the picture of my daughter pretending to use her inhaler, I will find out about it.)
