Notoberfest

I’ve realized that I haven’t posted since we were in the PICU. Henry was discharged on Oct. 7. Dan took off work to stay home with him that week. Getting back to work with him healthy and at home was much easier.

He returned to daycare this past Monday and things have been going well since then. This morning however, I woke at around 3 am because he was fussing and I assumed ready to eat. After nursing I kissed his forehead and noticed he was a little warm so I went to take his internal temp. The thermometer read 102° so I gave him some Tylenol and called the Community Peds Care hotline. They suggested we go ahead and take him to the ER.

After some tests the concluded that he has a UTI. So, he just got a big shot of antibiotics and they sent us home. We have to return in the morning for another shot.

Today is also Oktoberfest in Riverside.  We went last year and had a blast so we decided to cash in some Respite Care (nurse babysitter) and have our first real Dan and Becca date. But, Henry had other plans, so for now we are going to get some breakfast,  a nap and then usual weekend chores.

Oh well, it was a nice idea. Maybe next year:)

    Sorry Henry wanted to keep you at home with him ;o). But this nurse babysitter business is pretty awesome! I never really thought about that being such an important need. Hope you are able to cash in your time soon for a little couple respite.
