This wasn't quite the weekend we planned. Thursday night, I noticed that Luke was warm, and his fever was 102. It was only 99 when he woke up, so I thought it was just due to teething. Peggy called me at 1:00, and his fever was back to 102. I got him home, and he still had no other symptoms other than the fever. That was not the case yesterday. He was pitiful all day. I don't think I put him down once until lunch time. Sean and Sam worked in the garden and mowed the yard, and everyone took good naps. Luke perked up a little after that, but his fever was back up at bedtime. He still had fever this morning, but he's been fever free since 9:00. However, he hasn't allowed the paci to be out of his mouth for a second, except to eat. You know he's feeling bad when he has one paci in his mouth and the other one in his hand. We're praying he'll be fever free when he wakes up.
Sean got out the pool from last summer, but it had a hole in it. So he and Sam went to the store and got a new one. It's not the greatest, but Sam had an absolute blast in that pool today. We tried to put Luke in this morning, but he wasn't having any part of it except standing up with a death grip on my arm. This afternoon, he was feeling much better, and he loved it, too. It's going to be a great summer with these boys! But first, I've got to get proper clothing for them. Sam has plenty of swim diapers but no swim trunks that fit. And he doesn't need the swim diapers because he likes to pee in the grass. Luke has two pairs of swim trunks but no swim diapers. We improvised today.
Finally feeling better!!
|I couldn't resist taking this picture. At least he didn't pee in the pool.|
