flash friday

Liam battling the 90 degree temps we had this week.

The week started out well, got bad and then got worse. I am very much so looking forward to this weekend.

Tuesday was a bummer. My co-workers and I learned that positions were being cut. One of my favorite co-workers was "let go" and two others were also "let go" from our sister office in Amsterdam. While I am very fortunate and grateful that I have a job, I am also very sad to see these ladies leave. So after work, Liam went for his 6mos. appointment with his pediatrician. Drum roll please....Liam now weighs 16lbs 2oz, is 25.5 inches long and is on target re: developmental skills. YAY! Then he got his shots...boo! Then the shots kicked his rump.

Wednesday started out with Liam having a fever and was a bit cranky...so the fever dropped before he went to daycare. Within an hour I was on my way to pick him up from daycare as his fever returned and all he wanted to do was scream. Awesome! Got Liam home and it was pretty much a snuggle fest the rest of the day. That was pretty great.

Thursday Andrew stayed home with Liam as he still had a fever, but his mood was much happier. Andrew put a call into the doc's office and we were told that if the fever does not leave by Friday to call back.

Friday am Liam still has a fever. We called his pediatrician and he had an appointment scheduled for 9:30. Liam gained 4 oz between Tuesday and Today (16lbs. 6oz) and his fever was still going strong. Little guy had a funky rash all over his body and just looked sad. Diagnosis: (another drum roll please), Liam has an ear infection. Rash is from the viral infection he has been battling and will get worse before it gets better.

But the good news is that he is okay to travel... which means we can still go to Delaware! We are hoping for a better weekend.
