Logan got his 12 month shots yesterday and he was doing so well, especially considering he got 5 of them. He was a little cranky the rest of the day but that was to be expected. He didn't really get much of a nap yesterday as his dr appt landed right in the middle of his afternoon nap time and I think the little bit of a cold he had left combined with no sleep knocked him for a loop.
He went to bed fairly early as I thought he would. I of course getting the opportunity to eat a quick dinner and go to bed early myself, couldn't sleep worth a crap. But he got up about 11 crying. I went in to check on him and he was burning up. Took his temp and it was 102.3 Which is not good but the pediatrition told me last time that I shouldn't take him in until it breaks 104. So I gave him some tylenol and sat up with him. He played a little but mostly laid on the living room floor and watched NickJr. At around midnight I took his temp again and it 103.8 clearly it wasn't going in the right direction. So I loaded him up and took him to the ER. They gave him something and we had to wait to see if it helped. After 4 hours and a few temp checks and tricks his fever is back down to 101 and I was able to bring him home. Alternating between tylenol and ib profen every 4 hrs the rest of the day and lots of fluid and sleep. Hoping his fever is gone by the end of the morning but at the moment he doesn't seem interested in sleep. When we got home the dog went into happy to see us mode and that appears to have given fella his second wind. So I'm going to warm up a bottle and see if I can get him down so he can sleep. And so his mama can sleep too because I've been up all night and am exhausted. Hopefully Matts TDY jump will be canceled and he can head home this morning instead of tonight.

Visti Home

I started a whole long blog about my trip home. I actually wrote it all out and its just not necessary. To be honest a few things happened while we were home that Matt and I are still processing and to write it down now probably wouldn't be fair.
Suffice it to say:
*I enjoyed seeing my oldest and dearest friends
*I enjoyed what time I did spend with my family
*I had a wonderful time with my MIL and enjoyed every minute Logan and I spent with her
* I'm so thankful for Logan's party and the people who helped out, showed up and showered my little fella with love and adoration
* It was wonderful to be out of 100 degree weather for a while
* I really love home and while I'm thankful for the opportunities to live and experience other places all over the world, it will always be home and I can't wait to move back for good.
We've decided not to go home for Christmas. Not knowing when our next PCS will be is a huge factor. Hopefully it won't be too long after the first of the year and we'll for sure go home then. It was a nice visit, I'm glad I went and I'm glad we were able to spend some time with everyone.
