Lets see, not a lot of anything other than home time. Todd worked all weekend, as usual, so it was me and the kids at home. We got out twice, once to hit Price Chopper for vacuum bags and once to Mercy to get more medicine,,both times the kids stayed in the car while I ran in.
Tucker still has the cough lingering and the doctor will not extend his antibiotic any longer.
What her suggestion was....KEEP HIM INSIDE UNTIL THE SURGERY!! HA...yeah right. We have kept him in for about 3 weeks, works schedules have been redone, missed and everything else. Not to mention after this surgery we will miss work for another week to 2 weeks helping him recover. SOOO, what we came up with. A script for hand sanitizer every 1/2 hour while at school and daycare to help keep virus from going from his hands to his face. I posted Germ-X throughout the house once again and we will do the same.
This surgery, getting rid of the tonsil/adenoids, will help him so much. His air way is so clogged and he turns so purple. We just have to be well to get it on time....just have to. I am afraid that when we go on the 16th as it is they will tell us it cannot happen. We will see.
OK, so in the mean time.....some new things on Tucker's list.
He now says "unt some" and points to what he wants.
He now pushes trucks... (see the video)
He has learned to take the diaper off...
He does simple commands....where are your shoes, get your book, go get your drink...
He will tell you "ssss" for yes and "NOOO" for no. He has also started to do the sign for yes while saying it.
He jumps....OK, so his version of jump which is to throw his hands up in the air really fast and then fall to the ground...no feet leave the floor, but he is learning the concept of what it means.
He dances, ALL THE TIME. He loves music, it is an incentive for him. He bends down and moves his arms while opening and closing his hands (so darn cute to watch)
He says "EEEE" for wee when you ask him if he is swimming while he takes his bath. He likes to flip around and lay on his belly in the bath, laying his head way back and kicking his feet. (again so darn cute to watch)
