Just to give you an update after our rough week last week...Eric went to the doctor yesterday where they did his second x-ray. The doctor confirmed the pneumonia, but said things still looked strange in there (his chest), so she scheduled a CT scan for this morning. She only gave him two pills to treat the pneumonia so that he would have to come back! When he asked why he needed a CT scan, she said that she worried he may have TB! Oh brother! He told them he'd been vaccinated for TB. They asked when he was last checked. He told them, "in July when I got here!" They said they just wanted to check to make sure. Needless to say, he does not have TB. He does have a pretty severe case of pneumonia. There's a large pocket on his left lung and a small one on his right lung. He gets to go back again in a week to check his status. He's not too pleased about it. Anyway, his cough is improving slightly. He still can't breathe deeply and gets winded when he walks a lot, but we are sleeping slightly more.
The kids' colds haven't gotten too bad. They still have stuffy noses, but not awful. Honestly, it's just really nice to have Cade at an age where he doesn't scream and run the other direction when I want to wipe his nose. He finally understands the benefit of blowing his nose!
In addition, yesterday we had a meeting with our HR director, and while the situation with our nanny is not the best it could possibly be, I think it's livable. Sorry I can't publicly post the details of the situation, but just know it added a lot of stress to an already stressful week.
Last night, one of the couples that lives in our apartment complex took us out to dinner at a really nice Italian restaurant. They had their teenage daughters watch the kids and make them dinner, too! They knew we'd been stressed and it was great to have a night to relax and talk with adults...on a Monday, no less! So, I'm happy to report that things are looking up!
