Sick week

Thanks to everyone offering to Christmas exchange! Im so tempted to exchange with all of you, but you might be waiting a few years for your gifts so just went with the first few folk to comment. Thank-you all! Clare, if you read this, will you email me cherylthomas3000 at yahoo dot com. I hope to do more exchanges this way throughout next year.

So, what a week. Our thanksgiving meal was amazing. My friend Emily (a Canadian living here) cooked up a feast. The best meal ive had all year i swear! DH (also a Canadian living here) was glad to have a "proper" thanksgiving. Caleb was a bit grumpy though so i had to leave early. Then by the evening he had a high fever and we were starting to panic. Caleb has a bladder reflux (which we found out after his hospital stay back in May) which means that when he pees some goes back up to his Kidneys, putting him at constant risk of infection. He's on long term antibiotics but a fever is the first sign that something is wrong again. So we were worried! Anyway, we got an emergency doctors appointment Monday morning and he put him on a stronger antibiotic and we had to send off pee samples etc etc. We havent had those results back yet. Turns out he had a throat infection as well. He was so miserable all day Monday. Poor baby. Then on Tuesday DH got sick and was throwing up every hour for 12 hours. Today, DH is better and back at work and Caleb is good too. Phew. Here's my little cheeky monkey

Hope Caleb feels better soon. A friend of mine's dd has bladder reflux. She can't control her bladder. They have just found out about it - doing tests for the last year. x

Awww, Caleb is always so cute and smiley.

Glad to hear he is feeling better. The poor wee thing with bladder reflux AND a throat infection... that's pretty rough for someone so young.

Oh Cheryl you poor thing! It sure sounds like you had an awful lot on your plate. And your poor sweet boy! I'm going to be keeping him in my prayers that everything gets ironed our with his bladder. Bless his heart. He is darling though!

And a sick husband to boot! You are super woman!
