So far, this calendar year, I have watched more Tinker Bell: Search for the Lost Treasure (his sister's influence), Thomas (holiday version), and Barney than the law should allow. By some miracle, I have not had to watch Cars even once. So, there is some silver lining here.
Sunday, we went to my large extended-family Christmas party. I was armed with camera in hand for his grand debut as a... Drummer Boy. Uh... he started vomiting soon after we got to the party... and after we changed him out of his cute outfit into
We arrived home to more vomiting and Sunday evening was a mess. I hoped that Monday would be better, but it was not. Monday night was even worse and I eventually just rested next to his crib and patted his back all night long. Um... I am almost NOT exaggerating when I say, "All night long."
Disclaimer: Yes, I would have held him or put him in bed with us... but holding him or putting him in our bed is the LEAST likely way to get him to go to sleep. He has never been one to fall asleep this way... and my best bet for getting him some rest was to let him stay in his own crib. :-(
After listening to him toss and turn for h-o-u-r-s... it became apparent to me that his inability to sleep was because he was having a hard time breathing (like he was all stuffed up and stuff).
Tuesday morning, we went to the doctor. Surprisingly, the doctor told me that he has pneumonia. GASP!!! Luckily we caught it early(ish). So, she gave us a prescription for antibiotics and sent us on our way. Unfortunately, the antibiotics also give him diarrhea... whatever. At least he was able to take a 3-hour nap on Tuesday and slept ALL NIGHT LONG Tuesday night.
Today, I am finally seeing some smiles again!
I'll be back to post some more soon... and comment on your blogs. I hope that you are all having a healthy new year!
