Another Day

I talked to Kristen a short time ago and she said that she has had hardly any contractions today. She is 33 weeks today so she has made it to another week in her pregnancy.

We had the kids last night and we have discovered that Dylan is most likely allergic to cats. He was wheezing and coughing and he kept complaining that there was something in his eyes. They were all bloodshot and watery. Poor little thing. I remembered back to when Erin had croup once and we were told that bringing them into cool moist air helps open the airways. Our weather is perfect today for that. It has been raining and has been in the 40s. So, Jim took him outside to sit on the porch with a blanket wrapped around him. Within an hour he was doing so much better and his eyes were no longer blood shot and itchy. He had also stopped coughing. Now the question is, what do we do with the cats? We need to give them away before we move to Mexico so should we do it early? Erin would be devastated but I really want Taylor, Kristen and the kids to be able to come over also. They are more important than the cats. Decisions, decisions.

I leave tomorrow at 5:30 PM to go to San Diego for Jermaine's graduation from Marine boot camp. Thursday is family day and Friday is the graduation. I am looking forward to going but it is a very hard time to leave Kristen, not knowing if she will have the baby while I am gone or not. God is in control though and Victory will be born when he is supposed to be no matter what we do. I will be traveling down with Jermaine's fiance, Ashley. Come to find out, she is not driving down but flying instead. She is on the same flight as I am so that will be good. She also didn't have her friends staying in a hotel with her so we decided to room together and save both of us money. I like that since that means that neither of us have to figure out where to go in San Diego on our own.

Well, that is all for today. I will not have my laptop while I am in San Diego so I will not be able to update until I return home unless there is a computer in the hotel that I can use. Kristen is borrowing our laptop to try to combat the boring days with no one at the hospital. We are glad we had one for her to use.
