Tis The Season
I have much to say about the last five days, but I am exhausted! It's been such a long day. Jackson had a fever last night and this morning, so I took him to the doctor to get checked out. Tis the season for pneumonia, the flu, and RSV, so you know it couldn't just be a simple visit. We ended up at a hospital to get his lungs x-rayed. It was a little surreal having to register there and get a little hospital bracelet just for the x-rays. It definitely added to the drama, as if I needed anymore today. You just cannot reason with such a young child that just because they are being restrained doesn't mean they are going to be hurt. Bless his heart. Bless my heart, too. We had an hour and a half to kill after the hospital before we could take the x-rays back to be examined by the doctor. Curt met us at a Chick-fil-a so that he could carry his share of the burden over a Combo #1 with cheese and no pickles. We weren't very hungry though. Jackson didn't even want the ice cream we got in exchange for his toy (thank you Amy for sharing that hint with me). So four hours later we were on our way home with the news that he didn't have pneumonia. Thank You, Lord. I felt so sorry for the four sets of parents who were there getting their newborns x-rayed. That must have been so scary. When I recover a little from Jackson's cold as well as my own, I will try to share more about my trip home, my LPM Christmas party, etc. Also? My boy's second birthday is two months from today. I just can't believe it.
