Well, after 12 hours of being at the hospital and 2 different hospitals. I still am not sure why I have a fever. They think I may just have a flu. Wednesday afternoon, I broke out with a high fever, mom gave me some medicine and cooled me down a little bit. But after my nap, mom took my temperature again and it was back up again. So mom called the doctor and he told us to go to the ER since his office was already closed. He wanted us to go and get a scan done to make sure my shunt was still working okay. Well we get to the hospital about 5:00pm and finally got to see the doctor after 3 hours of waiting. Good thing it wasn't too much of an emergency. First they wanted to do some blood work and take a chest x-ray to rule out anything else. After several hours of waiting on that, everything came back okay. So now they said the only way to find out if the shunt had an infection was to tap the shunt. What they do with that is stick a needle in my head and pull out fluid from my shunt. The only problem is that the doctors down here in Cape don't do that. So they sent us up to Children's hospital to get that done. So now the time is 10:30pm. So that was pretty much a waste of 5 1/2 hours. At about 1:00 we got up to the hospital. And of course the waiting game continues. They did all the tests and scans they needed and all came back fine. The doctors said that I would just have to tough it out and there wasn't much they could do. So at 5:00am we headed back home. What a long day. But I was a tropper and was very good. I stayed awake most of the time and slept part of the way there and part of the way back. So today I took several naps to catch up on my beauty sleep.

No More Cars

Mom and dad finally bought me the movie Cars. After I had been begging for it since Christmas. But thats not the point. I have heard so many good things about it and how good it is. Well I think it is the worst movie ever. Mom you can just take it back to the store. I don't know what everybody was talking about, it was very scary to me. All of the racing and loud noise was not appealing. I thought I would like it because I like when you make car sounds and crashing noises. But on tv it is a different story. It's much scarier. So no more of that at least for awhile.

Guess what happens when you go to the babysitters? Apparently, everything that everybody else has, from colds to pinkeye. I came home on Monday and my eye was all matted shut, swollen and red everywhere. So I spent the next two days at my Grandma Vickie's, when mom and dad were at work. Wednesday, I even got to see my Aunt Tresa and Uncle Huts. They were down for the day, and I was glad to see them because its been awhile. I have been on an antibiotic to clear up my eye and it looks much better and I went back to the babysitters on Thursday. So I guess we will just have to wait and see what I come down with next.

Drool machine

Well I am fully over my sinus infection. I was starting to feel much better a couple days ago but I still felt sluggishly and not very active. But I am ready to go now. To add to the sickness, I also had another tooth come in. It's been so long that I forgot how it felt. I haven't had one come in for several months. So now I only have 3 more to go. And then I guess it will be time for my 2-year molars. It's a never ending process. This one didn't to seem to bother me to much except all of the wet collars and sheets after I got done laying on them. I think the other ones are coming in right behind one another, because I am still drooling an awful lot.

Pass it on

Well I'm feeling much better. Even good enough to stick my tongue out for a picture. But the bad news is that I passed it on, mom and dad both are feeling bad now. Life is much better!! And back to the babysitters in the morning.

Blah is right. That is how I have been feeling the past 2 days. I have been trying to get over this cold for awhile now. And I feel like I hit rock bottom last night and today. Right before bedtime last night, I got a 101 degree fever. Which of course doesn't make you feel good. Mom gave me some medicine which broke my fever. But I still didn't sleep the best because I kept waking up coughing in the middle of the night. I woke up all cruddy feeling but I didn't have a fever so I headed off to the babysitters. Well about 1:00 today, I had to call mom at work to come pick me up because my fever came back. She decided to take me to the doctor and found out I just had a sinus infection. Nothing to major. But hopefully this antibiotic he gave me will make me feel better.
