On April 6th we took Maria to see Dr. Noyes a Pulmonologist at Cardinal Glennon.  She has been fighting a cough since December 31st, 2009 (yes I remember it because it has been a long 3 months & it was New Year's Eve).  Dr. Noyes believes Maria's pediatrician was on the right path for the cause of the cough.  In October of 2009 we all had the H1N1 flu.  They think that the flu made her lungs vulnerable to easy irritation.  So the first cold she had, caused her to go over the edge with her lungs.  After 3 antibiotics and Singulair twice she is now on Flovent twice a day.  We are scheduled for a follow in a month but I am praying we will not need it.  If her cough is better, I can call and cancel the appointment & they will tell us how they would like to ween her off the medication.

Last night the girls and I went to the Illinois-Mizzou game at Busch Stadium with my parents.  Emma was really excited about going, but she easily bored of being there.  Maria was entertained by the popcorn, peanuts and Papa S.  She did bump her head on the concrete so we left shortly after that since it was already past their bedtime.

 

While we there daddy worked on finishing up the painting in Maria's room.  It looks really nice and I hope to get the bedroom cleaned up today.  Matt is a wonderful daddy and the girls are very lucky to have him as their daddy.
