Watching again… Day 642 17AUG10

Joshua pulled another thermostat malfunction this evening while I was at work. I got a text from Renee that said his temp was 99.3 and going up. He was outside playing and the ever vigilant Jarrod noticed he was looking kind of pale so he sent him in to get his temperature checked. Jarrod is always looking out for and after his little brother. After a few rises up to 100.0 his temperature decided to fix itself and when he went to bed it was back down to normal. A rising temp awakens a lumbering beast in our minds and it does not quiet down all that quickly. So we will remain hyper-vigilant for a few more days and hope that when clinic rolls around next Monday his counts are back up where they belong.

The earlier parts of the day were absolutely normal and average. Just like any other day with Jarrod doing school and Joshua trying to find ways to make as much noise as he can to distract his brother without getting in trouble for it :)

Christian is doing okay and was feeling all right when I talked to him earlier today. He has yet to pass his kidney stone so that is still looming on the horizon but they gave his some pretty strong pain meds so I think he will be okay.

Hope that fever threat goes away soon. Jarrod is a trooper and does an excellent job with Josh! Hope you are able to get some rest tonight and that Christian passes that stone quickly. Love, Laura & Frank

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Bummer with the thermostat malfunction. Hope it settles in the cooler regions and stays there. Massive kudos to Big Brother Jarrod for his vigilance and caring. He is truly awesome!

Ouchie owie Christian. Hurry and get that thing gone!

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
