Shots Shots and more shots

Oh my gosh she is standing already!

Hi Rylee
Daddy and his girls dressed like boys

Jordan gets the sleeping pictures this week.

This is what Jordan thinks of her sippy cup.
Rylee loves to chew on it.

Sweet as can be.

The girl's adjusted age was 7 months on the 4th and they will be 11 months old on the 20th. I can't believe they are almost 11 months old. We have started the birthday party planning and it doesn't even seem real that they will be a year old very soon. I took Jordan for her 2nd seasonal flu shot on Tuesday and I had the PA take a look at her ears as she has not been sleeping too well. She thought everything looked fine with her ears, but she did hear some congestion in her lungs. I started to feel a little under the weather on Monday and thought maybe it was my allergies until my doctor told me on Wednesday that I probably had a virus going on. I had already exposed the girls so I have just been careful with trying not to spread anything to them. Rylee has had alot of secretions and we are having to suction alot more than normal so she probably has something going on. No fevers or anything so just keeping an eye on her. We had a nurse here last Friday that I suspected was sick so we might have picked up something from her. Needless to say she will not be returning back to our house. We are still doing Saturday nights without nursing and it is getting better each week. Troy still stays up until 2 or 3 am and then I take over from there. We finally got our Synagis (RSV) shots and so our nursing agency was here to give them their shots. It was not a pleasant experience for either girls. It took the two nurses to give them their shots as the dose was so big that they had to have one in each leg. It was pretty painful for the girls and myself. I am not looking forward to doing this each month. I was told that each shot is about $4,000, but insurance only pays $1,500. I am sure our insurance company is not liking our multi million dollar babies right now. We don't have to pay anything as we have met our deductible so we will have to pay towards these shots after the 1st of the year. I took Rylee up to our High School yesterday and she was able to get her 1st H1N1 vaccine and she will get another one in a month. Jordan will get her 2nd H1N1 vaccine on 11/21/09 and then we will be done with flu shots. The girls will get the Synagis shots monthly until March or April. We have Tiny K (infant and toddlers) here on Tuesday and I am excited to show what the girls are up to. Jordan is standing along the couch or the exersaucer if we help her get up. Rylee actually took some juice out of her sippy cup today and I was so excited. I made her stop, as I didn't have any thickner in it and didn't want her to aspirate. I am going to try giving her some of the liquid yogurt and see if that works. I have Wednsday off for the holiday so Troy is taking the day off so we can actually go out just the two of us and do something. We can't do anything together as we can't leave Rylee with anyone other than a nurse and we are very limited on our nursing hours. I am looking forward to getting out and doing something. We may do a little Christmas and Birthday shopping for our little laddies. Have a good week.
