Oh you guys, Michael has pneumonia!

Thank goodness our pediatrician is open on Saturday mornings or things may have grown much worse before we realized. He's had a fever for four days now and his sleep is all messed up... Last night I was up with him from about 10:30 until 2 a.m.! Neither of us was at our best this morning that's for sure.

Most of our family plans for this long weekend have been derailed. Fortunately Matt has been willing/able to take Harper out so she hasn't missed all of the festivities. They went to a high school football game Friday night, to a festival yesterday, and tomorrow will head to our local parade - the Labor Day Parade is HUGE in our city.

I have been the official toddler-snuggler/nose-wiper/medicine-dispenser for the weekend. Poor Michael is so pitiful when Matt and Harper are leaving to go somewhere fun and he looks up at me and says, "Me go too?"

At this point I'll just be happy if he's ready to go back to school Tuesday.

That's so sad for Michael. I hope he gets better soon.

Oh man, Kels. This really, really sucks. Poor Michael! I am sending loads of sympathy, especially since we went through the same last winter with E. Hang in there.

Yikes! Sorry to hear it. Thank goodness for Dr. Rita and the gang. Do you need anything? Let us know. Give him an extra snuggle from us.

Oh, that sucks! I hate when sickness makes you miss things that you were looking forward to. Hope Michael is indeed better for school tomorrow.

HI Kels,

We hear Michael is doing a little better today. We'll keep praying he gets better real soon.

Oh man! I hope that he gets better soon! It always seems that stuff like this happens on holidays or vacations and such. Too bad.

Ack! How did I miss this?????
So sorry your little guy had to suffer through this.
(And you too. I never realized how hard childhood illness is on mothers.)
