Two Months Old Already

It's hard to believe Riley's two months old already. His first day of daycare was last week on 2/19 which was also my B'day. It was hard to leave him that day but easier the next day. I kept him home on Friday 2/22 cause he had a fever and DH took him to the doctor. Early Saturday morning he started throwing up and we had to take him to the ER where I watched them put in an IV to give him fluid and then they did a spinal tap to check for meningitis. That's something I hope never to see again. They ended up admiting him to the hospital and diagnosing him with the flu. We spent Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the hospital with the kid. I ended up in the ER on Sunday thanks to the flu and not being able to keep down my medications. We are all doing better now and he's back in daycare and I'm back at work. Daycare keeps telling me what a well behaved kid he is and how he doesn't cry. Then I get him home and he screams at me.

It's friday though and now we get a couple of days off to actually relax this weekend... I hope. I keep trying to stitch but the kid starts to fuss after about half an hour of stitching which drives me nuts. DH will switch off with me so I am getting an hour in here and there. I have managed to finish a Dragon Dreams since the kid was born but that's been it. I'm working on a Victoria Sampler that I'm gonna finish this weekend too. I have to get back to fish city after that though.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hugs. We've done the inpatient thing with Juliana and it is unlike any other experience. Hopefully that will be your one and only time.
