I just want to open this post saying that I LOVE being a mom! I really think it is the greatest thing next to having a great husband and giving my heart to the Lord. With that said, having Cade sick this weekend has been SO hard!! I am used to my little man running all over the place, jumping around, being loud and eating. Friday, he came down with a fever. It came on so fast that it was scary! 102.7 scary!! I called Matt and we gave him medicine and thought it was teeth or something. Being up all night with him crying uncontrollably was so hard. I do not like not being able to fix my baby's problem! Saturday, we went to my parents to get out the house thinking that would make him happy. He cried on and off all day and that night was my sister's 30th birthday party. We didnt get to stay because he got worse. Another night of no sleep was ahead of us and we decided to go to Peds Plus Sunday morning to get him checked. They "checked" him and said it was probably just a virus of some sort and to keep giving him meds as he needed. Well after another rough night and Cade waking up with 102.8 temp we went to see our doctor! We love our doctor!! He is a friend as well and its nice to know that he is always there by phone or visit. So he checked Cade and found ulcers in the back of his throat. YUP...we have another version of hand foot and mouth!! The good news is we are on the better side of the slope since the hard nights are behind us. I told Matt that if I would have found out on Friday what we were up against, I would have cried right there. Cade had this last winter and it was such a hard few days! Not to mention I am almost 7 months pregnant and holding a 27 pound boy can be straining on your back (side note).
Last winter, which was our first with Cade, we caught everything. 6 ear infections led us to tubes, RSV, Hand foot and mouth, pick eye, the lovely stomach bug that he and I had, and a few common colds. It was a rough winter for us! I am praying that we have a better cold season especially since we will be welcoming our baby boy soon!! Please pray that we will get well soon and have our fun boy back soon!!
I will say I am thankful SO thankful for Matt!! He helped me the whole weekend, stayed home from church and was up all night with me splitting shifts and constantly trying to help with everything!! I love him and I love that he loves Cade and I so much!!!
