no news is good news

Why can't we stick with the no news?!

Gabriel's pediatrician personally called me tonight. As soon as I heard his voice I knew we were in for some bad news. Gabriel has lead in his blood. The use a scale of 1-10 to rate how much blood is in a child's system. 1 is a very little bit and 10 is hospital, it is being worked on where a 5 is an emergency stage of lead in the blood. Gabriel has a level 3 in his system right now.

We are to call the county health department tomorrow to see what their suggestion is. We have to test our house and my in-laws house to see if there is lead in the house itself. We also have to test EVERY toy. Should be interesting.

We need to remove everything with lead and Gabriel will be retested in 6 months. I hoping we find the main cause of his high levels very quickly.

In the mean time, I have been down with a sinus infection. I was put on antibiotics on Saturday. They should be kicking in by now, right?! I am so tired on top of feeling like poo... Oh well, a little time and all will be good. I took today and tomorrow off of work to try to get on top of my game instead of going back too soon and getting sicker.
