Merry Christmas

Just want to say Merry Christmas to everyone. Had a good day. We did Christmas yesterday and today with Dan's Family and then drove home from MI to open our gifts here tonight. It was so fun watching Jaren open his gifts.

Happy Birthday JESUS!

One Sick little Boy

Well this has been one incredibly long week. Monday Jaren started running a fever of 102.5 and with meds and all it was not coming down. Monday night it went up to 103.6 and the next morning, despite the snow on the roads we slowly went to the dr. He didn't find a certain thing wrong with him so we came home.
Tuesday night I did not get to bed for the 1st time till 6am. Jaren was up most of the time. Dan went on to school that morning but I called him around 10am to have him come home so we could take Jaren in again. The Dr. office wanted us to go to the hospital because Jaren would need treatments that the Dr. office couldn't give him. SO we spent several hours there. He was diagnosed with severe Croup and we were sent home with Steroids and Breathing treatments.
He is doing better but when we went back to the Dr. today they gave him more steroids to make sure the swelling stays down around his voice box. Croup is the baby's form of Laryngitis. He seems to be on the mend but this Mommy will be glad when it is over.

I know that Winter has not officially begun but we have had snow since Wednesday morning and it is snowing right now. Jaren really doesn't know what to think of the cold, wet stuff on the ground. He is liking it more now. The first day we went out and he was kinda scared. Maybe just because it was different.

The odds to having the cold means Jaren doesn't get to go out much. He loves the outdoors and he cries at the door wondering why he can't go out. So I guess we have to settle going to the Mall more and letting him walk around with his harness on.

Tonight I he got on the Piano Bench and was flipping thru pages of my songs and then he would play a little and then turn to another page and play some more. I got some pics of him doing that. Now I need to get them all downloaded.
