Sickness and a Birthday

The past couple of weeks have been strangely calm, yet insane at the same time. As far as Peyton's ongoing medical issues go, it was calm. She's still a little down on her weight, but we're working on getting it back up. Working against this is the fact that she's got her top 4 teeth coming in all at once. She was also under the weather from last Friday til Tuesday. Her eyes are continuing to hold their own. She still has a bit of swelling inside her left eye, so she is continuing with her steroid drops. She has not had too many doctor appointments in the past couple weeks, so that has been kind of nice for a change.
I was sick, myself, with a bad flu bug coupled with a pretty nasty throat infection. I'm not 100% better just yet, but feel many times better than I did last week. I missed an entire week of work because of illness.
I managed to get well enough to have Moira's 3rd birthday party. She had her party at Chuck E. Cheese. It was just a small family get together, along with a friend and his daughter who is 8 months older than Moira. The party was fun. The best part was no mess in my house!! Moira was excited with her party and all of her gifts.
For the past week or so, the daycare has been working on transitioning Moira to the 3 year old class. She has been doing pretty well. She's adjusting to their schedule which is a little different from the 2's. Effective this coming Monday, she will officially move into the 3's. Way to go Moira!! In the middle of this, she came home with a case of pink eye and is on eye drops now for that. Never a dull moment in our house!!
We are enjoying a visit with Mom and will be sad to see her leave on Sunday. She's been a huge help to us, especially with 3 out of 4 of us being sick while she's been down. She'll be leaving us to go back home. In a couple weeks, she and Dad will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. We're so excited for them and wish them all the best!
