Day 261

25 07 2010

Today I was supposed to be going to Olive’s 1st birthday party in NJ.  But I broke out in hives again and mommy didn’t think all the other parents at the party would appreciate me coming.  Although the doctor said I wasn’t contagious, you just don’t want to take chances.  And it’s supposed to be another scorcher today – after being out in the heat yesterday, mommy figured it would be best if I stayed home.  Since we’re home she thought today would be a good day to drag out my costumes and dress me up and takes pics.  Here I am in the scarecrow costume.  She also had me in a giraffe and a dinosaur costume…..uh, thanks mommy, I’ll pay you back someday when I’m a teenager and start driving you crazy .

Day 260

25 07 2010

This morning started off weird!  I didn’t have a fever but after mommy fed me breakfast, I broke out into hives all over my legs and arms.  She was worried I was having an allergic reaction to something I ate – that happened once before when I first tried bananas…but this reaction was so much worse than that.  She called the dr’s office to see what they had to say, but the person answering the phone said I should come in.  So off we went, and Dr. Gheri was there again (I really like Dr. Gheri, she’s very nice.)  She said I might have a virus.  Apparently something has been going around and my symptoms, the low grade fever and hives, fit the symptoms.  There wasn’t really anything she could do for me – apparently it’s the kind of thing that has to run it’s course.  Other then the hives, I was feeling much better, not sluggish like the day before.  She said at this point I wasn’t contagious and it would be OK if I went out.  We had Jennie’s BBQ today and we were hoping not to miss it.  Lots of people from mommy’s high school were gonna be there and it was gonna be like a reunion.  Unfortunately it was gonna be a super hot day but we were looking forward to going in Jennie’s awesome pool.  I did go swimming for a little bit, but the heat made me super tired and I spent most of the day sleeping – thank goodness Jennie’s house had central air conditioning. 🙂

and I made some new friends today too!  This is me with Alicia – she has a twin sister named Cynthia.  Alicia and Cynthia look alike – that’s what being a twin means…..well one kind of twins look alike and they are that kind of twins!

Day 259

25 07 2010

Yay Mommy had off today, boo I wasn’t feeling too good this morning 😦 I had a low-grade fever again this morning and they thought I was still acting sluggish so mommy kept me home from school and we went to see Dr. Gheri.  She said she didn’t see any signs of infection, my ears were good, nothing on the back of my throat.  But mommy should keep an eye on me and come back if anything developed.  We went home and I played a bit there.  Then daddy had to go to work and mommy had a lot of errands to do so we headed out to the stores.  Mommy wanted to swing by my Aunt Tara’s house to say hi since we haven’t been there in awhile.  They normally go away for the weekend so mommy wasn’t sure if they’d be home but we got lucky and they were there!  So we hung out there for like an hour or so before we went off to do our errands.  That’s me with Julie, Erin and Johnny.  Amy was off playing with her friend so they weren’t in the picture.
