We had our first sick visit to the doctor today, two days after Eli was dedicated to the Lord at church. He really started getting sick on Friday, but Saturday night it was evident that he was not getting better and he started running fever. Oh it broke my heart that my tiny little peanut was feeling so bad. I love our pediatrician's office, it is a big practice with many doctors and they are open 7 days a week, although only for an hour on Sunday. They got us right in and even though Eli's normal doctor wasn't there, we liked the doctor that saw us just fine. He has an upper respiratory virus so there is nothing to do but make him comfortable. Now that we are home, he and I are having our first campout in his room. My mom helped me drag a twin mattress in his room and I have the humidifier running in here and he is cozied up in his carrier, to keep him upright. When he wakes up I will switch him into the nap nanny. They gave him a good dose of tylenol at the office because his fever was 100.5…of course it spiked while we were in the waiting room and I had elected not to give him tylenol prior to leaving the house so that they would get an accurate reading.
We got no sleep last night as he was up all night wiggling around and only wanted me to hold him. He stayed in the room with us and our room is so big that he humidifier seemed not to work as well, which is why I am in his room now instead of in my comfy bed. I am planning on joining him in a nap, but if I wake up or get some time later before the big game, I will post some pics of the Dedication. I wish I had gotten some of the whole group that was with him, I think now that we will want to remember that. Oh well I am the world's worst at getting distracted or overwhelmed in those situations. For some reason I was nervous and my whole neck was broken out in hives!
Family will be over tonight to enjoy the LSU vs.Alabama BCA championship bowl. I am nervous!!!! but can't wait to watch my Tigers play! Maybe after an afternoon nap Eli will get a warm bath and put on his gameday gear! pics to follow...
You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise: you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely…For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:1-3,13,16
