Blue Boy

We've had another long day and I'm tired so this will be brief.

Drew had another blue episode today. It was worse than yesterday. I was about ready to take him to the ER. Right before I left for the Dr. he spiked a fever and I gave him motrin. By the time we got to the Dr. the little monkey had returned to his normal color. Even looked slightly pink. Stinker. He was purple, I swear!

But the trip was not in vain, Dr. P thinks he has croup and gave him an antibiotic right there in the office. He should be feeling better soon. Also, since he tends to desat (apparently) at the onset of a fever I am to give him motrin around the clock for the next two days. I am praying that I will not have to make a fourth trip to the Dr. this week, or else I may have to take out a loan to pay my copay.

Also did I mention that I love my Dr? Because she is the best. She called us at home tonight to check on Drew and gave us her pager number in case we need to call. I think I'll be programming that into my phone for future use. I am seriously really sad that she is leaving Sacramento. We may have to move to Temecula with her.

Brendan just got over the croup! It sounds horrible. But the antibiotic they gave him really did the job. Hope Drew is feeling better!

You guys should totally move to Temecula :) I love the wineries there!
