City Life

My apologies for not writing last night. I was quite tired and to be honest, I recently decided to begin a healthy eating lifestyle so I am still getting used to eating smaller portions which make me a little cranky to say the least. That said, here I am at the computer with my morning coffee.

I just finished giving Parker his Septra. He gets it every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning. It is nice that I don't have to give him it again until next week. It was a little more difficult this morning than it has been in the past few weeks. We always give Parker his Septra while he watches "The Backyardigans" as he is glued to the television and he does not fight the syringe as it approaches his mouth. The first millilitre went down pretty smooth, as did the next, but when I gave him the next squirt of Septra he gagged on it. So as his face began to turn red, I frantically tried to get him to laugh or cough to clear his airway. Do you think it was me trying to get him to laugh or cough that got his air way cleared? Nope. It was him laughing at Austin on the television that did it. Not even five seconds later Parker was sitting on my knee kicking his legs in approval of his favourite moviestar. Austin the Kangaroo. For those of you who are new to the site, Septra is a medication Parker takes as a precaution to PCP pneumonia. PCP pneumonia is one of the worst forms of pneumonia.

CityTV is coming by the house today to interview us. We were under the impression that it was going to be Anne Mroczkowski doing the interview, but it seems that someone else is coming by to do the actual interview. It is to be only the woman conducting the interview and the cameraman. They asked if they could get some footage of Parker in his "Bubble" but I informed them that there really is no actual bubble. Our house being extremely clean and restricting visitors into our home acts as the so called "Bubble". That said, we did inform them that they could take footage of Parker in our home.

My wife and I decided yesterday that we are going to hire professional cleaners to come in and clean some of the more tedious things in the home once a month. Keeping the house as clean as it is takes quite a bit of work. There are quite a few blinds and windows in the house so we have asked the to clean all our blinds, windows and bathrooms so they do not have a piece of dust, on them anymore. Of course, if you were to look at those parts of our home you would think they were clean, but as I said before there is a big difference between looking clean and actually being clean.

I hear Parker talking in the other room so I better go see what all the commotion is about. It seems that every time I look away he sits up by himself and I miss it. I plan on witnessing this by tomorrow like I said I would.
