Sick of sick...

What a crazy few weeks it has been with Evan and sicknesses. If I never go to another doctor appointment I will be so thrilled and Evan will be even more thrilled. If I get my smiley, non throwing up, non fever, not irritable baby back I will be the happiest woman on the planet. I just want him to be better. First it was diarrhea for 3 weeks. Then a fever of 105* and a trip to the emergency room. Then it's waiting for him to have a wet diaper. He hasn't had one since yesterday morning. We are still waiting on that. If it doesn't happen by tomorrow morning it's off to the ER again for an IV. Then this morning a rash popped up over his body. On his ears, hands, feet, legs, face...found out that he has hand, foot, and mouth disease. He had to get blood drawn today to check his blood count....he screamed bloody murder and I felt so bad. He now has a bruise on his arm from the needle. This poor kid can't catch a break. It's so sad when the doctor wants to look at his throat (which has enlarged glands and is red with a rash) and he cries and turns to me and puts his head in my shoulder. I wanted him to be able to play with the Malones, Malones, and Powell kids this weekend for the Show Me soccer games (the dads are playing in the over 30 league). But now, it looks like we'll be cooped up in the house with this virus. Hoping he gets over this soon....it's so hard when your baby is sick and you can't make them better...
