I would imagine that one of the most important lessons we can teach our children is to share.  I think that the twins are well on their way to getting it down.  Brooklyn shared her croup with Tayden and tonight he is in the hospital.  Tim is staying the night with him and I am at home with Brooklyn.  We were very impressed with Cooks this time around - much better than our ER visit last Tuesday.  They just got a new entertainment system so that you can play games, watch movies, or surf the net from the comfort of your room.  This helped Tim make the decision to stay!!!  The doctor said that Tayden's breathing looked good - we are hoping that the breathing treatments we have been giving him for a week will keep him from getting as bad as Brooklyn did.  He does have a terrible cough and he has a tiny appetite.  The doctor warned us that it will probably get worse before it gets better - UGH!!!  They put him on the cannula (I reminded him how he had overcome this equipment before and that he should not get too comfortable with it this time around) and got him on an iv to keep him from getting dehydrated.  He was sleeping well when I left this evening.  I feel like I am on the never-ending roller coaster ride.  Each time it pulls into the station and I go to stand up, the ride starts again before I can get off.  Each ride brings new faces and some of the same faces that I am so glad have not found their way off the ride either.  There have been some very low lows, but the highs have far outnumbered them and keep us going each day.  I am starting to think that we should convert the nursery into a large bubble to keep the twins protected from germs for the next few years.  They got this without going out in public - so what scary germs are we going to find when we do actually take them out???  I must thank my sweet mother for being such a big help.  She has been puked on, pooped on, but most of all loved on.  I am pretty sure that is what keeps her coming back.  She makes my experience as a mom of multiples easier each and every day.  I will never be able to thank her adequately for what she has done and continues to do for us each day.  We love you so much SueSue!!!!  Please keep us all in your prayers.  We are hoping that sweet Tayden will be home in the next few days and we can move on to happier and healthier days.
