Mom Monday:)

Well Mom Monday started early today...like at 3am, when Zach woke up mumbling about pushing a button on his costume, a fever of 103, and the shakes(he was not cold...but hot). I jumped up, brushed my teeth and got him out the door.

Of course before I did that I did the mom flip flop....should I go to the ER or should I wait until the clinic opens...If I wait another 30 minutes and it gets worse I will be stuck in traffic with a super sick kid...but if its nothing we will wait in line for ever....but what if it is something serious and I wait. So I finally decided to get dressed and head out.

Once, we got there we spent a couple of hours waiting...taking some motrin in there somewhere. My poor baby sat in the waiting room, burning up and shaking...it was awful. He just laid his head on my lap and tried to sleep.

I say tried because...there was a family that left their 3, 4, and 5 year old in the waiting room...by themselves!!! Of course they were jumping around and being obnoxious...and there was no sleeping for anyone in there. Just as the parents came out I was debating whether or not I should say something to the lady at the desk.

So they took us back and ran all kinds of tests on him...finding that he has a viral infection that causes extremely high temperatures. We came home and he crashed. He is jut waking up now.

On a side note Britt and i had a nice chat last night when she came to apologize to me for her attitude the night before....maybe I will buy her a tiara:)

Okay, I thought you actually did wait to take him to the clinic. I didn't realize you had taken him to the ER. Times like this really make me wish I were there for you. I haven't talked to you today, but I sure hope he's feeling much better by now.
