I have been a very bad blogger lately! I need to do a few separate posts to get caught up totally, but sadly I have to report that Decker is sick (again.) It has been a challenging month. Once he got healed up from his wrist injury, then he got a stomach bug that gave him diarrhea and made him throw up one day at school. This bug lasted for about a week, but then got passed to both Scott and me. We all finally healed up from that (just before Jason's wedding.) A couple days later, we noticed there was a huge red boil on his butt, which made him cry whenever he sat down. The boil is a whole 'nother story, but let's just say I know what it feels like to get sprayed in the arm with pus from my baby's butt. Sorry, TMI. Moving on... So, this created about a week of a tender butt for Decker.
He FINALLY got over that and he was literally a brand new kid...laughing, happy, and running around; not demanding and crying to be held or cuddled all the time. We realized we had been missing our real little boy for the last month. We had about a week of total health before today, when he woke up with a fever and a cough. Scott stayed home with him today and I'll be staying home with him tomorrow. At least his current sickness is probably something that can be cured quickly by some medicine from the doctor.
Hopefully we will have our happy boy back soon!
