It's been a while.

Sorry it's taken me so long to update, but the day after we got back from the UK Owen's cough got really nasty, and by Thursday it had developed into full-blown pneumonia.  Again.  Sigh.

He's just about getting over it now, although it's taken nearly two weeks for the antibiotics to have any real effect.  Owen seems to need stronger and stronger stuff to kill his bugs, because we went through the same thing last time he had pneumonia in September.  It's a shame too, because the stronger the antibiotic, the worse his nappy rash gets (don't ask me why, but antibiotics and pneumonia often give babies horrible diarrhea and that then gives them painful, red cracked bottoms).  Anyway, we've got drugs to fix that too, so providing he gets the full course of antibiotics, steroids, nebuliser treatments and butt gel, he should be healthy enough for his eye surgery in February.  Fingers crossed.

Oh... and we have a new cat.  :)  His name is Robert BartholeMEW Turner, but he's known as Bob.  He's seven months old and all black with a single white dollop on his chest.  He's the snuggliest, most playful cat I've ever owned and he keeps me company during the day.  We like him A LOT.
