Bye bye fever hello rash. after a few days of fevers at 105 degrees i was so excited when it finally went back to normal. i thought the medicine was finally working and i was out of the woods, until this morning. i didnt get much sleep last night because landen was very restless tossing and turning like crazy. this morning when i got up to feed him i noticed his face kinda had some pink little spots on it, so i lifted his shirt and HELLO! his entire body (face, scalp, chest, back, diaper area) was covered in a rash. i basically freaked out. ive called the dr's office and they said a rash after a really high fever is a typical symptom of roseola. which you can do nothing to help but wait it out since its caused by a virus. so i just have to sit here and keep an eye on him and see if it gets better or worse. im sorta frustrated because i really thought dr's would do more for me. guess i still have alot to learn in the parenting dept.

poor little guy!

well when i got home today from my morning class landen wasn't looking to cheery. joe had stayed home with him and said that his nose wouldnt stop running. he kept sneezing and snot would blow all over the place! it was sooo gross. but joe took off to go to a dr's office and left me home. i noticed that landen felt a little warm so i took him temperature, and he had a fever. it was only 100.6 but still. so i went ahead and called the dr's office and took him in. i honestly figured they would tell me he had a cold and to go back home. but he has tonsillitus! poor little guy. he was put on an antibiotic for five days. hopefully he gets better soon.

figuring this out

well i am just now figuring this idea out about posting a blog. ive never been good at writing in journals, so this might not be very current. but i know its nice for family to have up to date information on the family and obviously everyone wants to see current pictures of landen. its late right now though, and i need to get some sleep before my big accounting exam thursday. ill try to post more pictures and maybe read a tutorial or somethin about this thing. hope i save the link so i dont forget how to get back on here!
