My poor big boy...

Kaden is not feeling well. He had a rough morning yesterday. It started by him needing continous suctioning. We got to school and he just sat down in the middle of the hallway whining because he needed so much suctioning. I ended up changing his trach to make sure it wasn't blocked. After everything was done he got up and walked to class like not much had happened. I told his nurse that if he isn't himself later on to call me and I would pick him up. He stayed at school all day and came home and seemed to be alright. Later on in the evening he began to get real cuddlely and whiny. As I was holding him he felt really hot. I took his temp and he had a fever. At 6:30 he told me he was ready for bed. Today he has had a fever off and on. I have been giving him motrin or tylenol and it seems to break it for a little while. I hope he gets over whatever it is and starts acting like himself soon. I also hope that the rest of us do not get it. I feel so bad for him when he doesn't feel well. I wish I could make him feel better. I think if he continues to act like this tomorrow I will take him to the doctor. I am worried that it could be bronchitis again or even pneumonia. He has a cough but tries hard not to do so. My poor baby.

Brody is doing well. He is a really good baby. Either he sleeps good at night or I thought it would be worse then it really is. He had his first appt and the doctor said he is gaining weight really well, I should hope so, the kid eats like a little piggy. Kaden is adjusting to having his new baby brother at home. I think he is a little confused with all of the changes and has a little bit of jealousy. I do not blame him, he has been use to getting all of the attention for pretty much the last 4 1/2 years. It doesn't help that daddy has been working on our new house every day.

Awww, poor Kaden. We've got some junk going around our house too. Funny I just blogged about it too. Nice how our blog entries revolve around snot and puke these days huh?

I bet Brody sleeps well b/c he's so big! I never thought about that, but it's kind of a perk to having a big baby. It seems like my kids had to reach a certain weight and once they did, they slept so much better, for longer periods. it's always right when you think you can't handle it any longer, then they sleep through the night. Consider yourself lucky! I'm happy for you!

I hate to hear that Kaden isn't feeling well. I know how hard it is on us when our little ones are sick. Oh the joys of motherhood.:-)
Well I hope between Brody and Kaden you are still able to get some rest.
