This was a fun week for us! We had friends and family over, celebrated National Hockey Day, and had a great time watching Jacob make the funniest faces. His eyes are getting lighter and bigger, and he's more alert than ever. He started to follow faces and a little stuffed toy with his eyes when we move it around. This week we started using cloth diapers entirely and we think they're awesome! We are using the BumGenius 4.0, and absolutely love them!
This week was a rough one for us. Jacob caught a little cold and was stuffed up for a few days. Of course, he got sick on the week that Josh had very long work days, so my days were pretty tiring. On the third day, he had a fever. I called his doctor, who told me to take him to the emergency room. I guess fevers in little tiny infants are taken very seriously, and are always considered an emergency. Josh came home right away, and, with me in tears, we took him to the ER. They checked his vitals, and although his fever had gone down, he had very low oxygen levels. Once he was admitted, they had to draw blood and take a urine sample, which meant a catheter. They had the hardest time getting the needle into his vein, and tried SIX times in SIX different veins! Jacob was bawling like crazy, people had him pinned down, and he kept looking up at me with the most pained look in his eyes. It was absolutely heartbreaking to see my little boy like that and not be able to pick him up and help him. Thankfully, all of his test came back fine, and he's almost back to normal.
