One step closer

You know its kind 0f crazy that I still have not officially graduated from college. I have 3 more general education classes to finish. Last Aug I got a scholarship for military spouses which purchased my last 3 classes via BYU Independent Study. I have one year to complete them (however you can purchase a 2-3 month extension). So I have to complete them by Aug 5th. Unless I purchase extensions and then it will be Oct or Nov 5th. With Matt gone and me having lots of free time when the kids are asleep as well as free babysitters galore while living with family, I decided its high time to get graduated! Don't you agree?!

I'm going to document my progress here so I'm responsible to more people than just myself.

I'm currently finishing my Political Science 202 Western Political Heritage class. I finished 9 lessons and their respective quizzes online as well as took the midterm. All within the last 2 weeks. I have 9 more lessons and quizzes and the final. I'm half way done with having 1 class down. I'm pretty proud of myself. ;)

TP & Hospital

We've been visiting family and friends in UT for the past month and been having a blast. We really lucked out with good friends allowing us to stay in their amazing extra house close to my brothers. Just after getting here I found a soaked TP roll on top of the toilet wrapped in a towel.
Lukas was in the bath and I asked him if he knew anything about it. He said "It fell on the floor mom so I washed it off". LOL.

My kids always seem to get seriously sick when we travel. This time was no exception and shortly after arriving both Luke and Lyd got serious colds, coughs and fevers so we went to the urgent care. Luke had strepp and Lyd had double ear infections. They were sick and cranky for 2 weeks. Unfortunately, Kaitlyn got it as well and wasn't doing too well so we went to the ER. She had to have all these tests so she got a catheter to test some urine, an IV to get some blood and to hydrate her, and a couple X-Rays. Luckily she didn't have to get a spinal tap! Test results showed she had RSV (which is just a cold but for newborns its very serious seeing as they can't clear their nose of snot which results in difficulty breathing). She also had mild pneumonia in her left lung. So they started antibiotics and kept her overnight because her blood oxygen levels were too low. We were seriously blessed because she improved drastically overnight so we were able to go home. With an 8 day course of antibiotics and a free pass to the respiratory therapy clinic at the hospital (where they clear out her nose so she can breathe) she's now almost completely healthy. We are so grateful the Lord continuously takes care of us. We certainly do love being healthy and happy!
