One Hot Mess!

Because I have been absent from my little blog for the last few weeks, I will try to catch you up on the crazy that is my life.

Last Thursday Cole developed a fever.

It continued on Friday.

Our family vacation was to begin on Sunday.

Are you still with me?

Good....just checking.

Between Friday and Sunday, Cole saw the doctor twice.

His fever remained over 104 most of the time.

This mommy was freaking.

But only on the inside.

I sent my husband and two other children on to the beach.

With my suburban.

And our boat.

And all the food in our refrigerator.

The plan was that Cole and I would join them on Monday.

That was a great plan.

In my mind.

However, Cole continued with fever.

Shots were administered.

Blood work was ordered.

Tests were given.

The fever continued.

So we stayed.

And snuggled.

And watched movies together.

And ordered out, because our cupboards were bare.

And we dreamed of sunny days playing at the beach.

Finally we got the "go ahead" on Wednesday.

We drove as fast as we could to the beach.

The next morning, we enjoyed 10 glorious minutes at the pool before the rains fell.

And fell.

And didn't let up until late afternoon on Friday.

Do you see where I am going with this?

Yup, one day of sun and fun.



But it was glorious!


He is just fine.

They never found any serious reason for his high fevers.

We are just thrilled to have our energetic little five year old back!

Even if our vacation...really wasn't.

I was wondering where you were & you posted just in time to keep me from sending out a bloggy search party.
So sorry to hear that Cole's been sick & glad that he's all better.
Hope the rest of the fam had a great time at the beach.

Poor Cole, I'm glad he's better. Sorry you only had one day there but I'm glad you still had fun on that one day!!

One day is better than none, right? Sorry your little dude was sick and SO glad he's better now...

Bummer! So sorry to hear about only one good beach day, but I bet that snuggling and ordering out was nice. At least that sounds pretty good to me.

Sue said...

Sounds like you need a vacation redo! Glad that there was nothing seriously wrong with Cole,though!

Poor Cole and mommy missing out. But how nice that you got the one on one time.

So glad he's feeling better now!

Awww....what a bummer. But I'm so glad that he's all better and it was nothing too serious.

I've been out of the blogging loop for few weeks too. Glad to see you are back!

Oh Dear....I am so sorry about your vacation blues. What a bummer!

I am glad that Cole is better. It is so hard to have a child sick.

With all that going on you would think that Mother Nature would have been a little more cooperative and given you more than 1 day of sunshine... So sorry... I would have gladly sent you some of our sunshine if I had known.

Have a good week ahead. Love, Grammy Lura
