Yesterday, Not so fun Clinic Day

Here are some pictures from clinic yesterday.

I hate the anxiety that I start getting the night before we go to clinic. I am finding myself not able to sleep. I clock watch all night, counting down the hours until we go.
Yesterday visit was nothing like I thought it was going to be. I anticipated leaving there with an antibiotic because he was showing early signs of something growing in his lungs. You know, that wet cough with mucus coming up. The mucus at first was clear then the next day it was cloudy, then the following day it was yellow/greensih...
I had a feeling that he didn't gain much weight but it seemed that he was longer. Well I was totally wrong!!! He didn't gain any weight, he actually lost half a pound. He didn't grow in length either.
Now we are on a very strict regiment for meals. We are also increasing his night feed volume.
I have one week to get his weight up!
Back to the mucus, the clinic says he is one of the kids with the most mucus that they have seen. They give that credit to his severe allergies. Since he has so much mucus going on right now, we now have a perscription for pulmozyme twice a day. I hope this helps.
I would like give credit for his horrible allergies to the great Texas weather that can't make up it's mind if it is going to be hot, cold, wet or dry!!! Yesterday, it was 80 degrees!!! First day of winter and it was 80 degrees. Today is suppose to be in the high 70s. If the temperature stays this way, I should have a Christmas pool party!
On a fun note... Here are some pictures of the Bryce and one of Brianna.
This is Bryce's newest game to play.

He seriously gets so mad when you pull him back up. He LOVES being upside down.

I am pretty sure this is my favorite picture of the 2 of them together. I ran to the kitchen for something and when I came back they were like this.
