He may be smiling, but he is really sick and grumpy.
Now granted the last thing I want to hear is that one of my darling children has a bacterial infection that may scar them for life, but I do get sick of "it's just a virus, just ride it out." I just want someone to say "Oh, it looks like he has X, and we just need to give him medicine Y and he will be better within the hour." Is that too much to ask?
Today will hopefully be better than yesterday, GJ would not let me put him down all day. I was supposed to teach RS, but luckily CE stepped up, thank you! He has a low fever and a cough and I am pretty sure a soar throat because every time he coughs, he screams. Every time I laid him down, even if he was in a dead sleep, he would scream. Tad and I had to take turns eating while the missionaries were over. So basically we have just been rocking in the rocking chair for hours on end. He is at least still eating okay so we just have to let it pass. Poor baby. The nurse said not to give him Tylenol unless he was miserable, but I bet our definitions are different.
He was good for our little party on Saturday though, it was probably the least stressful one I have had yet. Hopefully that's a good sign for Thanksgiving. Good times and good food. It could have been a little cooler (its still supposed to be 90's all week), but then down to 80 by next weekend, so hopefully Fall is here. We finally got good use out of the swing set, thanks Grandpa! Thanks Shelly for the pork idea (though inspired by Jan's 4th of July). We were worried it was going to rain so it was going to be back up, but I am glad we had that and the hot dogs. I of course took no pictures. Next time. Always next time. Who made the peanut butter cookies? They were excellent.
