And he's STILL sick.

He's still coughing to the point of throwing up. The worst part is that he doesn't know when it's coming. He's found if he doesn't have anything in his stomach it's better, but that's pretty much impossible to do round the clock.

He went through a lot of tests at the hospital on Friday. All signs point to asthma issues. We knew that he had issues as a little boy, but didn't seem to be too bothered by it now as an adult. Apparently this illness has sent him over the proverbial edge. It's just hard to know how long it's going to last. Very frustrating for all of us, especially James. It's sad when he starts coughing and your 5 year old daughter says, "It's ok everyone, he's just gonna throw up."

Some news (which, I realize, is worthless without pictures) - Avery had her first dance recital on Saturday and it was AHHHHHDORABLE! She did so well but it was a long night. She LOVED watching the older girls dance at rehearsal in the morning. She was fascinated and wanted to do what they were doing. It was called "Dance Before the Lord" and was done to Christian music, which was so nice.

Friday James had all this testing done and we had our septic tank pumped out. Holy disgusting. That reeks. Also on Friday the twins had their 6 month well child dr appointments. They are doing very well but they have what James has (horrid cough, poor things!) so they were too sick to get shots. Madelyn also had her 2nd ear infection. Both girls went on zithromax for their rough sounding chests - basically they have bronchitis. We'll go back late next week for shots if they're feeling better.
