All Dressed up and no place to go!

Evan seems to be improving from the flu bug. He had his last dose of Tylenol at noon today and took a 3 1/2 hour nap. He woke up with no fever and was still fever free at bedtime. Since he didn't have a fever we decided to put his Cowboy Outfit on him and let him Trick or Treat at a few houses. He was so cute. He would tell us he wanted to to go another one. We were only out about 20 minutes so fortunately it is a small supply of treats to be doled out.

The Flu has Struck

Yes, Evan has the flu. I got a call from daycare yesterday that he was running a fever. So I raced out of work to pick him up. He was so pitiful looking when I picked him up but amazingly he perked up a lot once he was home. I talked with the nurse and she said to see how he was on Friday. Well, last night he ran a fever of 104 degrees and Motrin would only get it down to about 101 degrees. So I called first thing this morning for an appointment. They did the nasal swab test and it came back positive. It doesn't differentiate between Seasonal and H1N1 and you treat both the same. Ironically, he was scheduled to get his flu shot tomorrow. Luckily, Kevin and I have had our flu shots. They gave him a prescription for Tamiflu so we will start that this evening since you have to give it every 12 hours. So the poor little guy will have to miss Halloween and trick or treating this year. I will probably still put his outfit on him if he feels like it and take a few pictures. Say a prayer for him to get well soon.

Pumpkin Patch

On Sunday, we headed to the Pumpkin Patch. It was cloudy, cold and windy. Last year, Evan was in shorts and a T-Shirt. This year he was in a hat and coat. He had a lot of fun running around the pumpkin patch. We came home with two punkins as Evan calls them.

Thomas the Train

Kevin and I took Evan to see Thomas the Train on Friday (10/2/09) in Spencer. He had a blast riding Thomas the Train, jumping in the bouncer, playing with the train sets and seeing the electric trains in motion.
