SICK

Jacob must have caught a virus, a nasty one at that, because since Friday morning this boy has not wanted to do anything but sleep in bed or lay on the couch watching Mickey, Umi, and Super Why. Deon is always at his side, as is Mommy and Daddy. He started coughing on Tuesday night, but we didn't think it was anything to be concerned about...especially since he's had colds before that are minor...then Thursday night we were up all night with him, and Friday we took him to the doctor. He was breathing fast (about 50-60 breaths a minute) and just had a lack of energy. The doctor had us get a chest XRay, which came back normal (no pneumonia, yay!), and said we should watch him closely. Saturday his fever spiked to 103.1 and slowly came down with the help of ibuprofin. He still has a slight fever and if it doesn't get better by Wednesday we'll go back to the doctor for some more help. Any prayers you can send up on his behalf would be GREAT! :) Here's some pictures of what our guy has been doing lately... ...and doing even more of this...
Bless his Heart!

  1. Did they check him for RSV? It can cause fever, rapid breathing, and lethargy. My ds had it when he was 6 months old.

  4. I know that my blog is private to others but I wanted to invite you to read my brother and sister-in-laws blog. I commented on your cdh awareness post that my nephew with this was being born that day. He is over a week old now and considering the circumstance, doing okay and hanging in there. I love seeing that your boy is so healthy now. It is so encouraging. The blog is:kaydiandgarrettjones.blogspot.com
