This was the mother of all weekends!! If anything could go wrong it did. I will tell you how it was supposed to go and then how it actually went.
How it was supposed to go:
Saturday- pick up the kids from the grandparents, go shopping with my mom and aunt, have a relaxing nigh at home
Sunday- stay home all day and do some heavy duty cleaning and get the rest of the Christmas stuff put away. Rest for the evening
Monday- take baby girl to Sick Kids Hospital for a dermatology appointment to get her birth mark looked at.
Weeeell this is how it went:
Saturday- picked the kids up from grandparents, went shopping with mom and aunt. (Looking good right?) Got home and baby girl spiked a fever. No other symptoms but not wanting to have any bottles. Gave her Tylenol and was taking turns with hubby up with her all night. No sleep.
Sunday- tried to get some sleep, wasn't planning on going to the doctor because she was in good spirits and the fever was going down with meds. Well around lunch time my big guy starts complaining about a sore ear and within a half hour he is screaming in agony! So we take them to the walk in clinic and get them both checked while we are there. Big guy gets Tylenol and antibiotics for a ear infection and the doctor is very concerned with baby girl having a high fever because she is only 5 months old and he said her breathing was a little fast. So he sends us to the hospital. We drop off big guy with grandparents (thank goodness they live close) and take baby girl to the germ infested hospital. They get us in right away which is nice and they say she has a fever and her breathing is fine and that she probably just has "what everybody else has" Great! thanks for the waste of time. So we get big guy and go home. Fighting the fever all night, I slept with her on a bunch of blankets on the floor, but neither of us got much sleep.
Monday- we aren't supposed to go the Sick Kids if anyone has had a fever, upchucks or the poops within 2 days of the appointment. Oops. Well we waited way too long for this appointment and she was seen by a doctor and she was otherwise in good spirits most of the time even with a fever. So we went anyway. (shes in a infant seat anyway, it's not like shes up touching anyone of anything.) So we get up super early with very little sleep and drop big guy off at my moms and go into the city. On the way I get a message saying that big guy upchucked all over my mom and the couch and himself. Poor guy. Thankfully it didn't happen again and he has been fine ever since. Mush have been a combination of milk and apple juice didn't agree with him. So that was a good thing. So we see the doctor, everything was fine and the birthmark should go away on its own gradually in the next few years. No problem. We head home and get big guy, and go home for the day. We are still fighting a fever with baby girl, but the good thing is that all my daycare kids moms decided not to bring their kids tomorrow so I have the day off.
We are alternating with Advil no wand she is sleeping better so hopefully we are on the mend. So much for our cleaning and putting stuff away. Oh well next weekend it is.
Oh and we did go out for dinner Friday night and it was really good to spend some time for just us. But I guess we payed for it all weekend.
