Lexi Lynn was born just before 3pm and was 5lbs. 8oz.

They are not sure of length yet as she is being monitored on oxygen right now but Aunt Jean thinks she looks really tiny.

Doctor round 2

Well we went back into the doctors office today as Mckenna is not eating or drinking. Well to rule out strep throat they took a culture was not likely that as very rare that children under 3 very rarely get. Well within 2 minutes of the culture being taken the nurse came back and told the doctor it was postive. The doctor said for it to come back that fast it is a pretty bad case of strep so they put her on a really high dose of antibotics. Hopefully in a couple days I will have my happy girl back.

Well the doctor thinks that Mckenna has Roseola. We will have to wait and see if she develops the rash. If she continues to run the high fever has been up to 103.9. They said is common (but now her tylenol and ibuprofen are not bringing it down) I will be taking her into the ER. She is just so miserable and has now started to hit her head and say owww. Mom thinks that is possible from a fever induced headache. We will see how tonight goes. Have not taking any pictures or done much of anything else the last couple of days. We will see. So glad that I have this week off as I would not feel right taking my sick baby and having someone else watch her. Even if it is Grandma who would give her just as much love and attention as mommy. Not that Grandmas not good but seems like when shes not feeling good not even daddy will help to sooth her.
Will keep you updated.

I am So sick of sick kids. Mckenna had another ear infection labor day weekend. Now this weekend she is running a temp between 103.00 and 103.7. As per the nurse she does not need to be seen today and can wait until tomorrow. I made sure to make the appt for early. She has been sleeping all of maybe 1 1/2 today. She seems to only be able to sleep if I am holding her. Since will has to work tomorrow and I am on vacation till friday night I had him set up the air mattress in the living room and we are camping out on that tonight. I hope that I can get some sleep. So far no luck. On the upside i did get 6 pints of raspberry jam made and froze a gallon of raspberries. Thursday I made 4 loaves of zuchinni bread and shreaded 3 gallon bags and 2 quart bags and Will informed be today that I must have 12 or 15 ready to be picked in the garden. Also made 5 loaves of banana bread and one loaf of sweet hawaiian bread in the bread machine. I hope to scald and peel my tomatos tomorrow so that I can freeze them for chili. I hope I have enough peppers that I can cut some up to put in with the tomoatos and will also add celery. Our garden is starting to produce so much and I have given away so much already. I will just have to keep canning and freezing. Hope our freezer will have enought room. Will try to take some pictures of our items and post them.

Will update late on the doctors appt.
