Let's Go Over the Past Few Days
Last Saturday Robb & Ellie had a birthday party for Jill & I. Kim, Jill, and Brandon were all in town. We had a delicious dinner, very delicious homemade chocolate cake, and lots of great presents. It's always fun to have the aunts and uncle in town, but all three of them at once was definitely a treat for Judah. While they were here Judah called both Jill and Kim, "Aunt Kim." But, today I asked him, "What's your uncle's name?" He said, "Ban-ban" (Brandon) and then, "What's your aunt's name?" He said, "Jill." So, they're even. :)
Wednesday night we went over to Peter and Brooke REGINELLI's house for dinner. They're newlyweds of only a few weeks and it was so much fun to hang out with them. Also there was Jason, Ryann, and Regan C-O-X. Judah had fun playing with Regan, minus both of their screams of, "MINE!" They also gave me flowers, cards, and a Starbucks giftcard and sang Happy Birthday. Fun! That night Samuel got a fever...yuck!
Thursday, Thanksgiving and my official birthday, was a fun day. We went to my mom's parents for an early Thanksgiving dinner (breakfast?), then went & played on the school playground with Ellie. After that we went to my dad's parents for the real dinner. We had a fun time with Grams, Bill, my mom, my sister, and my aunt and her family. Although, Judah was a little feisty and crabby. I really wanted to stay and play Cranium, but everyone left. They boys were both fussy, so we left, too.
Judah fell asleep in the car on the way home at 8. Very unlike him. We came home, gave the boys a bath, and put them to bed. A few hours later Judah woke up with a fever. We gave him some Tylenol and he went back to sleep. The next morning he woke up at 7:30, still with a fever. Eric gave him some juice and he slept until 10:30. Then he slept all of Friday. Today he's been feverish and sleeping a lot STILL. He's also had the chills where his hands and lips will turn purple/blue. This is probably the sickest Judah has ever been. It is really scary and sad for me to see my baby so sick.
He finally seems to be feeling better right now. He is reading a book with Eric and Samuel and drank a smoothie today. (All he's eaten in the past two days in chicken noodle soup, applesauce, and a lot of juice). So, we're praying for complete healing by tomorrow morning!
