A Good Soap Opera Premise

We’ve been busy, busy, busy and more busy. And it hasn’t all been good.

Evan was sick again last week so we took another trip to our Pediatrician. We have to be careful because anytime Evan gets sick he always ends up getting a really bad cough.  And that is not good, because Chunks is very asthmatic, just like his father was when he was little. After giving him four breathing treatments a day for three days, it was time to head back to the doctor.

The Pediatrician was concerned about his lungs and wanted to make sure Pneumonia hadn’t set in, so he sent us over to the hospital for x-rays.

Warning: Very disturbing photos of what they did to my child.

This whole x-ray process was very traumatic for Evan and I.  First off, Evan was squeezed into a horrible looking plastic Medieval torture device. Second, he didn’t quite fit. Third, Lovebug was laughing at us while taking pictures with my phone.

I tried everything to calm him down. Notice me trying to tickle his feet in the last photo. Needless to say, that didn’t work either.

The good news is Evan doesn’t have Pneumonia. The bad news is that we both need therapy from this experience.

The doctor put Evan on some antibiotics and also informed us that he had an extremely large build up of wax in both ears. Ever since he was little, Chunks has been a waxy thing. You should see the wax I get out of this boy’s ears! And just to clarify, I do clean his ears out every night after we get out of the bath tub. I just don’t understand how he can be so waxy. I was so shocked when the doc said this. So off we went from the doc’s office with a  prescription for ear drops and were informed that if these didn’t work, Evan would have to see an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor.

After dealing with a sickness, we had to deal with a civil lawsuit.

Let me first mention if you ever consider going in the investment property/rental business, please come talk to me first. I can give you precisely 423 reasons why not to rent a house out to someone. Here are my top four:

First reason: They will trash your house.

Second reason: You will have to put a civil judgement against them.

Third reason: You will have a court date.

Fourth reason: Upon this court date, you will have to look intelligent and act like you know what you are doing.

Honestly, does it look like this person knows what she is doing?



And would you take her serious?

No! Well, maybe.

The good news is their attorney decided to settle with us right before court. Hopefully my courtroom days are over, but if I find myself back inside one, God help the person sitting in the Defendant’s chair.

  1. I’m glad Evan is doing better. I know how horrible those devices are, Michael had to have x-rays like that when he was a baby too.
