We had a great Thanksgiving until Alex got sick, dehydrated and in the hospital for a couple of days. Thankfully we are home now, the antibiotics cleared his double ear infection and respiratory infection. We are thankful that he's okay and are hopeful that all of us can stay healthy. It's been a long couple of months
Here are some pictures from our Thanksgiving weekend...hope you had a great one too!
We got the call Wed. before heading to St. Louis that Mike's brother, Dave and his wife, Sarah had their baby girl, Lillie. We got to head up to the hospital for a little bit and love on her before heading to St. Louis.
We had fun playing, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving parade, making Pilgrim and Indian hats, eating, eating, and more eating, and playing outside with Jack. I don't think I've mentioned it on here about Jack, but just until the boys are a little bit bigger, Jack is staying with my sister and her two dogs. We just couldn't give Jack as much attention as we wanted and Kelli said her dogs would love a playmate! :) We are so thankful for her for taking him in for awhile. The best part is we always get to see him when we go to St. Louis.It was a great few days (except for the sickness part!)
Saturday we went over to Mike's parents house and had lunch. Alex was in the ER in St. Louis thanksgiving night and still wasn't feeling well. Friday we also ended up taking him back to the emergency room because his fever spiked and he started throwing up. After spending the afternoon slowly drinking pedialyte and getting an antibiotic shot, we were sent home. Saturday, he did take a good nap while we were at Mike's parents but woke up and didn't want to nurse and threw up the pedialyte I had given him. He had only had 1 wet diaper that day, so I called the nurses hotline and they told me to bring him in because most likely he was dehydrated. I was so sad to miss the dinner and was planning on taking a group picture of all of us before dinner, but didn't get the chance. We did have fun chatting and watching the boys play before I left...
After waiting to get into the ER, Alex was given an IV and was started on some fluids. He still didn't want to nurse and his ear infections were still pretty bad. We were admitted Saturday night and also stayed Sunday night because they wanted to see how he would do without the fluids. He wasn't nursing as long as he usually does, but finally started feeling better this afternoon. We got home this morning but last night in the hospital, I started throwing up. Thankfully I feel a little better, but definitely not myself and I am hoping it's just a 24 hours thing.
