Thankful Thursday

Boy, time just goes by way too fast lately! I'm sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. I swear each day just blurs into the next. I have a few posts coming soon, I promise.

Today I am grateful that Nathan's eczema is a lot better. You'd think that having psoriasis I would know more about skin care, but none of my other kids have had a problem with eczema (Jakey had a small patch on his arm as a baby but it went away in a few months by itself) and I haven't even seen a dermatologist for myself in over 10 years. (Don't worry, I have an appointment with one next week, gotta get my skin taken care of!) Anyway, we took him to the doctor Friday afternoon (and boy could I go on about that for a whole other post! But I won't. Let's just say 5 kids, 2 of them babies, waiting an hour in a doctor office is not a fun time.) and he told us that yes, it is eczema, and to put some hydrocortisone 1% cream on it. He also gave us a prescription we can try if it gets really bad. After just one day of using the cream his face looked sooo much better. Before it was so red and scaly and he would scratch it and make it bleed. Now it is getting soft again and not as red. He did scratch it today though, but overall it's lots better.

And I am grateful for my awesome Hubby who gave me the gift of sleep for Mother's Day. He took the baby for all of Saturday night so I was actually able to sleep undisturbed. Too bad it doesn't make up for all the months of bad sleep, and I'm already exhausted again, but it was nice to actually feel rested when I woke up Sunday, especially because Jacob woke up sick and threw up that morning. You need rest on those kind of days lol.

I am also thankful for Mtn Dew, my drug of choice. For a long time I didn't drink a lot of soda, and hardly ever stuff with caffeine, but these days I can't function without it lol. And they make so many yummy flavors!

What are you thankful for?

My hubby was good to me on Mother's Day. I am thankful to have such a great family. I am glad to read that you had a beautiful mother's day. You do deserve it.

I hope you have a good weekend.
