we were almost done with meds for Baby I get a phone call....the Dr.'s office called (at 6:30pm!) with the results from Baby's nasal swab the other day. It was positive for some bacterial strain and he's getting put on an antibiotic for the next 10 days! We finish the steroid tomorrow and I will be SO grateful!!! That stuff makes him a CRAZY wild boy!!! Not to mention not sleeping (I've been up since 2:30 this morning) and wanting to eat like a horse! The kid weighs enough as it is... I am happy to say that the nebulizer treatments did get better and he will only scream through about 1/2 of it now :)
We also had court today. Mom did not show (expected) but Dad did. The judge seems to think that if he can pass a homestudy and his daughter (whose apt it is) can pass a background check that Baby can be reunified with him there and we won't have to wait for him to have his own approved housing. This is an area where I have to step back and trust God completely!! I won't most likely get to see the place, but I know that it's a 2 bedroom apt where his daughter and her 2 kids live in one room and he and Baby would live in the other room. It would be very tight and it's so hard to not compare that with what we can give him here, but then I have to remind myself that we are not doing foster care to adopt every child...we obviously can't! lol! It's just hard to have to think of him going into a poverty situation with Dad on public assistance just to feed the baby, etc. Please don't get me wrong...I am not judging him or his living situation, etc. It is what it is and I just have to place my faith in God that he will give S. what he needs to parent Baby and that they both will thrive together as father and son!
