I had to laugh at the name thing. I was supposed to be Rebekah. My parents had agreed. It had been announced at church. When it was time for the birth certificate, Dad changed it to Rhonda without consulting my mom. He didn't want me called "Becky". It had to be an "R" name because he wanted me to have his initials. I have to say, I wish he'd stuck with the original name. :)

Oh Stacy I can so relate to the crying over medication for the kids!! Just went through the same thing, with DS an phnemonioa and then both girls sick after him! Then add the asthma on top of it, ugh.....needless to say I'm broke!! But the kids can finally breath and the constant coughing is starting to ease up a bit! I hope your family is on the mend soon!
