Every blogger deserves a little vacation time! This weekend Mark took Riker on a boys only camping trip and Trinity, Sawyer and I went to Mark's parents place for a few sleeps. Sawyer is just learning that people other than his immediate family can be cool to hang out with so we wanted to help him with that. Thursday he did great and had lots of smiles for Amma and Pa. He even let Amma snuggle him for a while. Friday was pretty good too. Unfortunately Sawyer had a cough which morphed into a fevered, snot filled, coughing miserable existence. By Saturday he only wanted Mommy and wouldn't eat unless he was given Tylenol an hour prior. The poor kid couldn't breathe, I felt so badly for him!
So Saturday I took him in to Children's Hospital just to make sure that we weren't dealing with anything more severe. After waiting only 2 hours (that's really not bad for Children's) the doctor said that it's just a flu and to expect it to get a bit worse before it got better and to give Sawyer tylenol if that helps him to eat. So on the way home we picked up baby Tylenol, saline drops and an aspirator for the little guy in hopes of making him a bit more comfortable. He's doing ok, but he's certainly not his usual self.
Here's hoping he gets lots better in the next couple of days!
