Interesting Wednesday ( May 26, 2010) 40C Humidex in Ottawa

I had an interesting Wednesday. I had an ultrasound at 10:30 am, and the temperature rises, and it gets to me; coughing and cold as a result.

Our apartment did not have any air conditioning, so it hit me bad. Mom and Kieth went out to get us new air conditioner and a tower fan, and installed it for us. I was very weak, considering 8 month pregnant.

Mom invited us to sleep over at her place to cool down, and it worked well. We left the air conditioner running in our apartment to cool down the place. We have a good night sleep, but my coughing and cold stayed.

On Thursday noon, I have a doctors appointment and Mom just drop us off home. She has to go and visit grandpa Emile.

Wednesday was very hot...........and challenging. I grew up in a very warm place, but that temperature really weaken me. It was a very new experience.

Karlina at 1 year and 3 months: LEFT EAR INFECTION

Karlina is now 1 year and 3 months and she got an ear infection in her left ear.
She was high on temp about 101F and it freaks me out. Alternate on Advil and Tylenol to control her temp, plus wet cloth on her forehead.

It started on Thursday May 20, 2010 and her temperature was unusually high, and i thought it was summer heat, so its just bath for her. Friday, the high temperature persisted, plus coughing and runny nose. And she got this runny poop once that stink like you never believe it. Thought i smelled the worst already, but this one was atomic bomb. Friday night was crazy, she won't calm down and i have to carry her all the time, and temperature spiked high again.

Saturday: May 22, 2010 I asked Rob to take time off work so we can take Karlina to the doctor. We waited for the walk in clinic for one hour and she got an infection in the left ear.

She got a prescription, Amoxicilyn for seven (7) days starting today, 3 times in a day. She is fuzzy and she did not eat her fruits today. She loves her grapes, banana or cantaloupe. Today, she seem to munch on Goldfish, cough and spit it out again.

I hope she feels better tomorrow, because I am getting tired too.

May 10, 2010. (MONDAY) Rob's 32nd Birthday

We wake up nice, and sing happy birthday to Rob. We got him a cake a day before, and Kenny told him about it, so yeah...kinda the surprise is spoiled. Of course, Kenny did it because he was so proud that he got to pick Daddys birthday cake.

We got pancakes, fruit trays, and cake in the breakfast table.  It was a nice day, kids are healthy running around the house and Rob was home.

Jack came by in the afternoon, and we got beer delivered to our home, at my convinience.

For dinner, we have Mom, Kieth, Auntie Sharron and we got pizza from Hungry Sammy's. It was delicious and the price was alright.

Kenny and Karlina enjoyed playing with Auntie and Mom running around the house. It helps me a lot because it tires them, to get ready to bed.

We got Dave over for a visit too, and it was nice to end the day with Rob happy and smiling. Must be the beer!

Mothers Day 2010

Mothers Day 2010. I am very happy today, my family is growing and I have a very loving husband.

I got a dozen roses, and a beautiful card from Rob. I took the kids to church at St. Josephs and have lunch at Billings Bridge. Kenny loves the Yakisoba noddles, it took him an hour to finish the bowl.

Rob took us out for dinner at KS at South Keys. Kenny have Junior burger, I got lemon-herb salmon and Rob had lasagna. I like my salmon, it was so fresh. I like the cheesecake, it's real cheesecake. KS also gave us a single beautiful rose for Mom's on Mothers Day. For the price we paid for our meal, it was really great.

I look forward to more Mothers Day to come. We meet Ron and Dotty, VJ's godparents.
