It’s been a crazy weekend/week so far. My Mom came in from Minnesota last Thursday, and let me tell you, her visit was much welcomed. I love my Mom. She is such a great Mom. I have been counting days until her visit! Kellan also loves the added attention. It was all supposed to be a laid back visit, but this has turned out not to be the case. When my Mom came in, I told her Kellan wasn’t acting like his normal smiley self. He was very closed mouth, and I attributed it to teething. Well come Saturday, he woke up warm and stuffy wish a small cough. I again thought teething… 2 hours later after throwing up from coughing, and a temperature check that revealed a 102.3 temp, we were off to Urgent Care. Except Urgent Care wouldn’t take our insurance, so we went to the ER. I was told there that Kellan had a bug, and it would pass.
While I was grateful that there wasn’t anything worse going on, it is very hard to see your baby sick and have no real reason why. Kellan spent the rest of the day throwing up after every feeding, and trying to burn off his temperature. My Mom was wonderful through all of it. She helped me with the throw-up; she calmed me down when I was nervous. She never questioned my fears. She watched Kellan so I could catch up on a little sleep (he has returned to several night feedings – which is fine because that is what he needs, but also very tiring).
Well all of a sudden my wonderful Mom comes down with exactly the same thing Kellan has – and what does she do? Um, help me organize my house. Talk about super mom! We have been trying to lay low, while at the same time, she has been trying to help me get some of my remaining boxes unpacked, and put away with creative storage solutions. If I am half the Mom she is, I will consider myself a successful mother. I love you Mom.
Kellan has started to feel better – we tried some apples and cereal to help try and bind his little poops up, but he has been very closed mouth to any food other then breast milk. Yesterday we went to a new Pediatrician, and really liked him. Their office is open 7 days a week, which is great and means unless it is an absolute emergency no more ER visits for us. Dr. said Kellan seemed to be doing much better – and even had him get his H1N1 booster shot. Today we went for a nice walk to the state park in our backyard. After our walk, Kellan decided he was going to try and Army crawl. I can’t believe how close he is to being mobile! And then we went to Target/Kohl’s/and Kirkland for more home organizing stuff. When we got home, we thought we might try to give Kellan peas, but he wouldn’t eat them, and promptly threw up everywhere again. So while he is feeling better – he is obviously not completely out of the woods. He got a nice bath, we read a book, and he went right to sleep. What a sweet baby. I love my Squishapillar, and sure hope he feels better soon. If not, I may not be kidding about that bubble in production….
