My sicky boy

Every night when I am getting Zac's bath ready I put him in this chair and ask Deacon to keep Zac company. It's one of my favorite times of the night listening to Deacon talking to Zac... and tonight was especially cute- Deacon took his light saber out and was showing Zac how it worked. Zac was very attentive to the whole thing :)

Poor Deacon... he survives cold & flu season just fine, but all of a sudden in the middle of the summer he's sick twice in a little less than two weeks! Last weekend he had the stomach flu and then early this morning he crawled into bed with us and he was burning up! I took his temperature and it was 104!!! Needless to say he got to stay home with me- I took him to the doctor around 10:30 and the Motrin/Tylenol had FINALLY kicked in and his fever was down to a little less than 100. Thankfully the doctor found nothing wrong with him... and so we went to Davis to meet Damien for lunch. Well, by the time we got our food the fever was back in full force. Poor thing was shaking he was so cold and miserable. I got him home and he was sobbing- I asked what was wrong and he said, "I don't know mommy- I just don't feel good!!!" He then did something he has never, in his entire life, done- he asked to take a nap! So he crawled into bed with me- I worked and he slept... for almost 4 hours. He woke up with a 104 fever again, but it went down within the hour and he's been fever free since around dinner time tonight.

So he gets to stay home with us tomorrow- he's got to be fever free for 24 hours before he can go back to school. So say a prayer that we're fever free tomorrow- and an even bigger prayer that Zac doesn't catch this bug!!!
