Feeling Better

Thanks to everyone that left a Get Well message and prayed for Evan this past week. He is FINALLY starting to feel better. He ran a fever for about 4 days and had this horrible cough, I mean horrible can't believe that's coming from him cough. I had to take him back to the pedi. on Thur. and they gave him a stronger cough medicine w/ codeine. That at least helped him sleep through the night. They say Evan has a strong gag reflex and that is why he vomits so much, I have heard this is common with heart kids. He can vomit after every cough, he coughs and gags and then vomits. It's pretty bad when your 2 year old carries a cup around to drink after every cough and runs to the bathroom if he feels like he's going to puke! He did keep up his imagination though - around Wed. he started having diarrhea from not eating and only drinking and all that flem. This is the first time since being potty trained that he has had that so when he went to the bathroom he was a little startled - he hollared for me and when I got in the bathroom I told him it was okay that it was happening b/c he was sick and he said, "No Mommy, I just had a river come out of my butt" I cracked up at his explanation of it and then he topped it off by saying, "waterfalls too, I can't wait to go to Mamaw's tomorrow and tell her I had 3 waterfalls come out of my butt." He's a hoot. Hope everyone is ready for Christmas - 6 day's left!!!

Christmas Portraits

Finally got Evan's Christmas pic's back. The 3 yr. old fake smile was in almost every picture but the two above were more "Evan" than the fake smile ones. Evan has been sick since Mon. with what started as a cough and now is accompanied with a fever. He went to the doctor yesterday and they said he had an upper respiratory infection and put him on an antibiotic and cough medicine. It was wierd last night he went into a coughing fit after I gave him the cough medicine - Argh! He was up and down most of the night coughing and wanting to be held. Say a prayer that he feels better by the weekend so he doesn't miss out on some Christmas parties!

Thoughts for today

Several of the kiddos on my TOF Yahoo support group have had their surgery this week and my prayers and thoughts have been with them and their families.
It snowed here this morning - just a dusting but none the less it was snow. Evan was so excited, he asked me if that meant Santa was coming! I can't wait for Christmas this year. It was fun last year but, he is so so excited this year. I'm wondering how in the world we will get his train table set up and not wake him up.
I felt like crying today - I called and enrolled Evan in preschool. He doesn't start until the next school year - Aug. 2007 so, it's a ways off. It is a Christian preschool that is very close to our church and my parents home so they can pick him up. This school has come highly recommended from a few of our friends who already have or have had kids there. I'm so sad just thinking of him growing up, but also excited that Evan will get to be around other kid's more. The school is 4 days a week but you can send them as little or as much as you like so I believe we will start with just 2 days. My mom will enjoy the break but I know will miss him like crazy.
My baby is growing up!!!
