Our week started off normally, until Strep found Luke. He woke up from his nap Monday afternoon with a fever. He had no other symptoms, so I put him to bed that night thinking it was teething. He woke up Tuesday with a fever again, so off we went to see Pam. He had Strep. We picked Sam up from Nana's and headed home. All day, Sam was acting irritable and whiny, and I knew what was coming. He woke up from his nap with 103 fever. Thankfully, Pam's office called him in an antibiotic without us having to go back in. So we stayed in the house the rest of the week. It wasn't nearly as bad as I expected, though. Luke really only had that one day of fever and then he was fine. Sam's was worse. I couldn't get his fever to break until Wednesday morning. He was so miserable because of the fever, and he kept waking up. Once it broke Wednesday, he was on the mend. He was funny about his fever. He told Sean Tuesday morning that he had a boo boo fever and he needed a bandaid. Then he told me later in the day that he had a fever and that I made him sick when I spanked him. Ha! Later on, he said, "Pam will help my fever. I need to go see her when I wake up." (He didn't understand why Luke went to the doctor and he didn't.) When Sean got home that day, he said, "Daddy, my fever is right here," pointing to his shoulder. Then he said it was in his leg, too. He is so funny.
Sean had to work Saturday, so we made the best of it by playing outside. They hadn't been out all week, so they loved it. We didn't do much the rest of the weekend, except can vegetables and play outside. We've got one more week until school starts back, and we're going to enjoy every minute of it.
Luke is all business when it comes to food. Even Strep didn't affect his appetite. Sam didn't finish his supper one night, so Luke crawled into his seat and finished it for him.
Luke has started running, and it is hilarious! He still turns his feet out a little, and he puts his arms behind him and takes off.
