'tis the season

The allergy/cold season is officially upon us. With the change in the weather, the welcome cooler temperatures and the opportunity to open the windows and let the fresh air in bring with them allergies and colds. And of course, knowing my family, asthma is right on our heels. Chops has been on his breathing treatments ever since school started. Today we made our first trip of the season to the doctor with an ear infection. "Doesn't Chops have tubes?" you ask. Why yes, he does. The infection was so thick that the drops we normally put in couldn't get to the infection. The doctor described it as putting a towel on a leak. So with prescription in hand I am off to our favorite shopping venue - Target - and to our favorite pharmacist in the world - Mr. Mark. Hopefully, we'll be through this round of medicine before Chopsy's second birthday. Thankfully, Monkeyman is still clear. I'm praying that he has finally outgrown the asthma issues he had when he was younger. I'm sure we will find out soon.

Other than that all is pretty quiet at our house. Monkeyman is doing great at school. We have resolved some initial issues that happened the second week. I think his teacher finally gets it. We wrote out some information on his paperwork when getting ready for school about SPD to help her in dealing with him.
