Wow, it's been a busy last 2 days. Pat and I woke up two nights ago at 3:45am to Joey crying, which scared the heck out of us, it was the first time he's woken up in the middle of the night since he was two months old. So I ran into his room and picked him up and realized he was burning up. He had a 101 fever. I gave him tylenol and got him to go back to sleep in bed with us. His fever came back about 9 am so I called the doctor and took him in. Poor little guy has his first cold! The sneezing and coughing started today and his eyes are so puffy. They look awful! Dr. B said his throat was bright red (negative strep culture). I feel so bad for him! Then he woke up at 4:30 this morning crying again, but no fever. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for him (and me).

Before I had Joey, I never realized how stressful motherhood can truely be!! Gotta love being a first time mom!

The first time Jack had a stuffy nose I cried and cried. It broke my heart that he couldn't breathe! I've lightened up a lot in the last 3 years...I hope Joey feels better soon!

Oh I'm so sorry to hear he's got a cold and fever :( Not fun at all! Whenever Kayla cries out at night like that we know something is really wrong and bothering her, because she just doesn't cry during the night. Hope he feels better soon!

I hope your sweet little guy is feeling better really soon. Fevers are the worst!

Poor bubba (and you). Sheena doesn't cry overnight either. She seems to like her own bed though, rather than her port-a-cot that she has to use at Nan's house.

I hope he is getting better soon. Vincent got a fever from his first vaccination a few weeks agon. The doctor had given us a prescription for some medicine we could give him in case. But we forgot (i.e. doomed to be bad parents for the rest of our lives...) to pick it up, and then he woke up at 4 am burning hot. Bookie had to go to a 24hr farmacy far away (they don't have so many of them here) in the middle of the night. We felt so bad!
