We're well!!!!

Well again! Thank you so much to all of you who have expressed concern and who have prayed for Aidan. He is a resilient little guy! On Saturday, when he got up from his nap, which was three hours or more!, Aidan was back down to 99.5. . .When he went to bed at 9:00 that evening, he was down to 98.6. I was so happy, but I got up every couple of hours to check on him. He stayed cool all through the night! He slept a full 12 hours and I woke him up at 9:00 the next morning. I made the decision that we wouldn't go to church in order to keep him home, and I think I made the right decision. God, I know, understands a mothers decision to not take a child out who is still really in recovery! Aidan was cranky and irritable all Saturday morning and then went down for another 3 hour nap around 1:30. When he got up, he was still a cool, normal temperature and the crankies were gone! Hallelujah! Praise Mary, mother of God, praise God from whom all blessings flow. . .Mary, as a mother, makes an excellent prayer partner!

Aidan has the second of three Hepatitis B booster shots on Wednesday. . .Poor Daddy has to take him to the pediatrician for that. But, we will make it all better that evening by taking him to the Loudoun County fair and having junk to eat for dinner!

Speaking of eating, our little Aidan is mostly a bottomless pit! He eats and then almost always says "More, please." The other day I gave him 5 miniature corn dogs for dinner along with some fruit. After cleaning his plate, he said, "More, please." So, I gave him 5 more miniature corn dogs. . ."More, please." After 15 of them, I told him no more. Tonight he had two bananas, a single serving container of Beefaroni, yogurt and two sippy cups of milk! And yet, he hasn't gained any weight! Perhaps I should measure him to see if he has grown more than the 1 1/2" that we already know he grew!!! I wonder how much he will eat when he is a teenager. . .I am beginning to have that prickle of fear in my stomach that we may not have enough to feed him every day!!! : )

And, now for the picture my sister Amy has been waiting for:

I fail to see what is so funny about that!
