What the Heck?

Our household has been crazy lately. Lucy's been teething. She's also been running a fever and has a bit of a summer cold. On top of that, I've been trying to get her on more solids lately, and boy, have they been working a number on her digestive system. One word: Stinky.

For the last three weeks, Ted has been lethargic, with loss of appetite. He's made three trips to the vet's office, including an overnight stay. He was so dehydrated that he had to be hooked up to an IV. Eight hundred dollars, two blood panels, one full body x-ray, four different prescription meds, three pukey puddles, two bad runny stool incidents later, he's still not himself. Poor Ted.

On a happier note, aside from a stomach bug, I'm doing fine and so is Chaz. Hopefully, Lucy will cut her teeth and she and Ted will get healthy soon. I miss my normally happy and healthy family.

Poor Ted, I hope you all start feeling better soon!

Solids are a f-u-n. It's so hard when they are cutting teeth too. I think we've gone through 3 and a half bottles of motrin by now trying to cut this molar. Poor girls. How's she doin with solids? It's been such a struggle for us, but I think Savannah's finally figured it all out and realized I'm not giving her any more baby food.
