Noah seemed to be feeling much better on Thursday when we went to the pediatrician for his follow-up appointment. Until we arrived, that is, and discovered that most of his body was covered with a rash that turned out to be (probably) virus related hives. This morning I finally breathed a sigh of relief to hear normal breathing AND see that the hives had all disappeared overnight. This was a long week for us.
Fortunately my mom was able to come down on Wednesday to help. Between her and Louisa and Sean we felt very well taken care of. We also got some spring cleaning done with our new vacuum. I can't believe the amount of dust that came up when we got a vacuum that really worked!! (I might have mentioned this already, but wow!)
Anyway, things are finally getting back to normal. Here are a few photos of little Noah from the week. I didn't take any in the hospital, so these are just from before and after.
On Sunday Noah and I went with our friends, Sara and Eva, to the Botanical Garden. Noah was already feeling pretty fussy and crappy so we didn't stay long, but I had no idea how sick he was.
Our favorite part of the garden is this wall of tiles shaped like fruits that has water trickling down it. It's fun and cools you off just enough. Plus, it's good for holding onto and pretending you can walk...
Noah enjoyed spending some time with his Nana, reading and relaxing for the first couple of days.
Today he was feeling much better and back to making new and exciting discoveries.
Keep your fingers crossed for us that we have some healthy times ahead! And thanks everyone for all the support. We've felt very loved.
