Sick of being Sick

I am really sick of being sick! I have strep throat again yes I did say again it has been exactly 1 month since the last time I had strep throat oh and I had it a month before that time too. What is going on? It is crazy, I never had strep throat as a child I was never sick as a child but this last year I have had strep throat I am sure 5 times I also had Pneumonia and my gall bladder out and a breast reduction(well that was by choice) My kids are sick every month, we have been to the Dr. more times in the last year an a half that we have lived here than the whole 5 years in Texas. I am sure my Dr. thinks I am a hypochondriac you should have seen the look on his face when I went in yesterday I told him I had fever and a sore throat he said well most colds start out that way but I'll give you a strep test anyway, well you should have seen the look on his face when it came back positive does he think I like to drive for 45 minutes to get there because I had a little sore throat come on I knew it was strep. He said well maybe we should think about taking out your tonsils. What is there to think about take them I do not want them anymore. My kids have and I am not kidding have been to the Dr. at least once a month since we have moved here. Isabella had 8 ear infections last year they finally put tubes in her ears in Nov. and took her tonsils and adenoids out she hasn't been sick since oh but wait now I think she has a UTI so we will be going to the Dr. tomorrow. Abby for sure has been to the Dr. every month, It was May 3 and she had fever I was talking to a friend about it and she said well it is a new month I took her in on the 5Th and she hand foot mouth virus she got from school that was Fun!! she also went to the Dr. yesterday because she has an infection in her middle finger that was fun too. Abby also had about 7 ear infection last year and got tubes put in her ears. I really don't know what is going on around here. I am taking them out of school at the end of the month so maybe we can have a germ free summer and not spend it in the Dr. office. You should see the size of our medical records. My cousin said today after I told that Bella may have a UTI she said god can't you get a break. I guess not she also said it was a good thing we have good insurance No Kidding!!!! Abby will be going back to the Dr. on Monday for her annual heart check up she will have an echo done in the morning at one hospital and an afternoon appointment with ped. cardiologist at the other hospital. Cross your fingers it all goes smoothly and that they wont have to sedate her for the echo. I will let you know how that turns out. Oh I guess I should mention for those who might not know Abby has atrial septal defect and pulmonary stenosis I wont get into medical terms basically she has a hole in her heart and her pulmonary valve isn't open all the way. Last we were told that she would need a patch on the hole when she turns five and the pulmonary valve was doing better it was a completely different diagnosis than what the Dr. in Texas said so I guess we shall see it is different this time. well enough about our medical troubles I must go now I need to upload photos so I can blog about our wonderful weekend. TTFN
