the big 4

Today Ethan turned four. He has had a good couple of days consisiting of his favourite things; a trip to Yarragon, bike riding, the rocket park, playing with his trains, spiderman, chips, McDonalds, pizza, lollies, and ice cream!

Hi to all the regular viewers.

The lead up to christmas was great this year. The kids had a ball. The chest bug and asthma problems Ethan had at the start of December became worse just before christmas and I was starting to think he would need to be admitted. We had regular trips to the GP but no hospital ones! He was commenced on prednisolone to help the asthma and more antibiotics. This made things better but I felt he still wasn't 100%.

He managed to get through Christmas and the new year but then the temperatures started. He came down with another chest bug, a perforated ear drum yet again and his asthma flared up. So more antibiotics and more prednisolone. He has just finished both and is still not 100%. Not too sure what is happening with him. I am starting to think it is more to do with his cardiac situation. The cardiac appointment which was meant to be in Dec and was cancelled until Jan, and then Feb and then the end of Feb is now next week.

I know something is not quite right but to onlookers he is going great guns. So even though something isn't quite right there is a lot that is going great. He is happy, playful and learning new things everyday!
