Noah's fever spiked at 104 degrees yesterday afternoon. Right around the time my mom came to bring him his birthday presents. He was clearly not feeling well and wasn't really into the whole present thing at that moment. She didn't stay real long though and Noah ended up falling asleep sitting up while watching Bob the Builder. Poor kid.
Dave went on to lifegroup and I stayed home with him (and Callie...who I really hope does not take a turn with this). He went to bed early, but woke up a few times in the late evening and we went in to comfort him. At one point we had his arm flopped over me and I was holding him and I almost fell asleep. I opened my eyes and just stared at this amazing kid that is a part of my life. Dave and I both spent some time praying over him at different times. Dave mentioned that when he was praying, there was a noticeable reaction from Noah. Cool.
He woke up at 6:15 and told Dave that his teeth hurt. So, Dave got up and got him some Tylenol. We definitely don't think that teething gave him that fever yesterday as he has already had a few molars come through without that kind of reaction. We heard that there is a viral thing going around. It lasts for about a day and gives you a really high fever.
After sleeping again until 7:30, he woke up back to the old Noie: chatty and busy. We'll keep him on Tylenol today because of his molars, but I'm happy to see him feeling better. Although, admittedly it was nice to snuggle with him yesterday.
Today is his ACTUAL birthday. He's 2 years old as of today. Happy Birthday buddy. 2 years ago today, Dave missed his graduation from vet school so that we can welcome Noah David into the world. He was 6lbs, 14oz of pretty cool kid. Wow, time flies...but its been a great journey so far. I can't wait to see what the rest of the ride looks like.
