Our only appointment last week was bright and early Monday morning. We had hearing with Chris. Lindy was not into the session last week. I had to wake her up and it was a dreary, rainy morning and Lindy acted like she was still half asleep.
Our plan was to leave for the beach Tuesday around lunchtime. But in the middle of Monday night Will cried out and Drew went to check on him. We discovered he had a fever. He was in our bed off and on all night. He woke up Tuesday morning and actually threw up one time and still had a pretty good fever going on. He laid around all morning and you could tell he didn’t feel well. We knew there was no way we were leaving for the beach that day. We kept giving him Tylenol and he laid around. His temp definitely started spiking in the late afternoon, and by 10pm when I was going to bed I checked and it was 104F. We put him in bed with us and watched him closely. Finally after a dose of medicine it started coming back down.
Wednesday morning he acted like he felt fine. He was running around and having fun so we headed off to the beach. Late that afternoon though his fever spiked again. The same thing happened on Thursday. Acted fine in the mornings, fever spiked in the afternoon. Finally Thursday afternoon we decided maybe we should have him checked out just to make sure it wasn’t something we should be treating. Drew took him to Urgent Care and it wasn’t strep throat or his ears. Just something viral.
His fever did pretty much go away on Friday. But something still seemed to be wrong with him. We would go to the beach in the mornings and his nose would start running. I’m wondering if he was having allergies down there. Overall he was just not a happy camper. He didn’t eat well all week as well either.
Despite everything going on we were able to have fun at Oak Island. My first roommate from college got married in Southport on Friday evening. A few different college friends stayed with us throughout the weekend. Thursday evening Heather, Ethan, Lindy and I went to the rehearsal dinner. Friday evening a girl from our church who is in school at UNCW came down to babysit the kids. She said they behaved, which made me happy. The wedding was great fun. Joanna looked gorgeous and everything was so nice. The most fun thing at the wedding was a photo booth with a bunch of costumes. We had so much fun in there!
We headed back to reality Sunday afternoon. We finally got home after a rather painful ride. Will didn’t want anything I had to offer him. Movie, books, toys. Nothing. He finally settled down to some Laurie Berkner Band music. She saved us once again.
We are back and we have one crazy week lined up. We’re planning on having a garage sale this weekend which we need to get ready for. And have I mentioned we’re moving???!!! In less than a month, so all the stresses that come along with that are starting to sneak in on me. I always get stressed out and everything turns out fine.
Here are some pictures of the beach that will hopefully help me chill out!
Our pitiful sick one last week. Yeah, the beach!Lindy hated the beach last year and was a little hesitant at first this year. We gave her a bucket of water and a shovel and she never looked back! She had a blast walking all over and playing in the sand. She also discovered she likes to EAT sand. Just like last year, they thought the wagon was a great toy. Helping bury Ethan in the sand. Ethan was the ring bearer in our wedding 8 years ago! There were great tidal pools that we played in everyday. It was perfect. We played in water but didn’t have to worry about them in the big ocean! Will kept jumping and falling down and splashing. She wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini! Polka dot girls! Will has started taking Lindy’s hand and pulling her places. We went for a walk one evening and although this picture looks sweet, they were just head butting each other, trying to get each other off their side of the stroller! Walking home. Out for a little ice cream treat Saturday evening. All dolled up for the wedding! Me, Heather, and Nicole just before the wedding.Joanna and Shawn UNCW girls. Heather, me, Julie and Nicole.The cute couple rode off into the sunset on beach cruisers. It took Joanna awhile to get situated but she did get on and ride off!
