5.4.11 - A quick update

Our Internet has not been working at our house, so thanks to Mimi and Baba for lending me use of their computer so I can do a quick post!

Liam woke up this morning and looked dusty to me...I have not noticed his color in such a long time, but this morning he looked a little grey.  He was breathing fine, no wheezing and otherwise his usual self, so I kept an eye on it.  He had a tiny bit of congestion, so I bulb suctioned him and he seemed to get a little more color back, but still not his usual pinkness.  So I decided to call the pedi's office to schedule an appointment this morning just to be on the safe side...and then I called 20 minutes later and canceled because I had convinced myself I was crazy and he was fine (as he was more pink by then and eating and drinking very well).  Then after his nap, he woke up a little dusty again...strange, so I thought I'd better be safe than sorry and call the pedi's office again to see if I could bring him in.  Long story short, Liam is fine.  Pulse ox was 97, blood pressure was normal, no ear infection, no teething, no fever.  Whew.  I still feel a little silly for taking him, but given our track record, I guess I did the right thing. 

On another note, I am over at my parents house mainly to drop Liam off for the night and all day tomorrow.  I am going to my first dental cleaning appointment in over 2 years...Yes, I know.  Shame on me.  But then again our past two years have been a LITTLE busy and consumed with the obvious, so I guess I can give myself a break.  Although my teeth didn't.  I am having the "deep cleaning" "root scaling" and "planing" done tonight on all four "quadrants" of my mouth.  Yuck.  I HATE strongly dislike going to the dentist.  In fact, I went a couple weeks ago for jaw pain and I left needing a deep cleaning...Guess it's my time to start taking care of myself again.  UGH.  Really not looking forward to it...

That's about it for now.  I'll try to post more later if our Internet gets back up and running!  Happy Wednesday everyone!


  1. I know how you feel about taking care of yourself. I started a dental implant before I knew I was pregnant with Hope and finally got it finished last week! Hopefully I will be starting on the rest of my self soon. Still have the baby weight to get rid of...that should take the next few years to get rid of!

  2. so happy that everything is fine with liam...definitely better to be safe than sorry!
    liam has a baba? moriah does means grandma in that the same for you?


  3. So glad that everything checked out ok with Liam. Logan used to do that when he was younger. He'd wake up from naps and bedtime looking a little dusky or have the blue nails. Used to drive me bananas. Now he just has those random moments during the day...they don't happen that often but it is disturbing to see for sure and it makes you kick in to panic mode.

    Good luck at the dentist. I waited FOUR years and that was the biggest mistake of my life. It required SIX hour and a half visits to my dentist to get fillings. Oops!! Yeah, I will make sure to go to my appts every six months from now on.

  4. I'm glad everything is good with Liam. I don't think you should ever feel silly taking him in. With our kids, it's always better to err on the side of overly cautious. :) At least that's what I reminded myself when I took Aly in for a cold on Monday. ;) See, you're not alone. :)
    Good luck at the dentist- I share your feelings about it. :(
