wearing red

Liam was wearing a lot of red on Monday, but it wasn't to celebrate Valentine's Day. I got a call in the early morning that my little valentine was not feeling well at daycare and had a temperature of 103.5. The night before was a rough  night for all of us. Liam just did not want to sleep. I thought maybe he was anxious and exciting about Valentine's Day and was wondering if his crush would give him a valentine...hah just kidding. But he really did not sleep much at all, which also meant that Andrew and I did not sleep at all. He was whinny and just could not seem to get comfortable. So I picked him up from daycare and his cheeks were SO red and hot. I took him to his pediatrician and we were then sent to the emergency room at Albany Med. To make a long day story short Liam was  kind of diagnosed with pneumonia.  Kind of meaning that this diagnosis is inconclusive. Base on his symptoms and a small spot in one of his lungs, it could be pneumonia or it could be just a viral infection. The spot on his lung could have just been part of his lung that didn't full expand when the x-ray was taken (which we were reassured was totally normal and happens in all of us).

So after being home for two more days, getting a lot of snuggle time in, harassing Olive and being the sweet little boy he is, he is finally starting to feel better. He returned to daycare today where they has another Valentine's Day party so Liam could be part of it. He did great and is almost back to his ol' self.

So I guess you could say this is a Valentine's Day we won't forget anytime soon.
