No news

Today was fairly uneventful. Josh is on vacation this weekend, which makes it feel like a really relaxed, prolonged weekend. We had a child-free shopping date this morning. That's when you know you are really hard up for alone time, when grocery shopping counts as your first date in months. We went to the local Buy in Bulk store and then by the regular store, too. Fun stuff. We are wild and crazy! Who needs a night on the town when you can have a pizza combo together at the bargain mart?

Bright-eyed BubTar is home sick today. Poor little man. I'm hoping he feels much better by tomorrow evening, so he doesn't miss out on the festivities. When KayTar and I came home from our playdate yesterday BubTar had started to run a fever, accompanied by a sore throat and upset tummy. He hasn't vomited, but was up feverish and crying about his stomach pains in the wee hours of our morning. He's had an EXCITING diet of dry toast, saltines, a peppermint, and ginger ale today. We've sent him to the quarantine room, which is also known as Our Bed, and he has been lounging and rotting his brain with cartoons today. I can always tell when he's sick because he doesn't ever say, "But Mooooom, I'm so boooooooored." I've been sneaking in for cuddles all day when KayTar isn't looking. He gives the best cuddles when he's not feeling so great. The tricky part is keeping he and KayTar apart. She keeps calling out, "BuuuuubTaaaaar? WhereareYOU? Noh fine YOU!" She misses him when he's not around. Tomorrow we have a day full of appointments and if BubTar isn't better, he'll have to pay a visit to the pediatrician's as well. We sure know how to do holidays up right, don't we?

I talked to the genetic counselor today. She called the lab and said that they said that results won't be in until NEXT TUESDAY. Bah! Arg! Grr! As frustrating as it is, we really have no choice but to wait. It seems torturous to have that answer dangling in front of us, but never quite being able to reach it.

Also, our little friend Ethan had bilateral cochlear implant surgery today. If you have a moment, won't you go leave him some feel better wishes? I'm so excited to see what this surgery will do for that handsome little guy!

Hang in there E-boy!

i am sorry Bub is sick, and can't really imagine how you manage one healthy when one is sick, and yet here you are, the expert.

Sucks to be sick, we're sick over here too, but the only baby I have to take care of is my boyfriend. And, ho boy, what a baby indeed. Penis = no pain tolerance around these parts, it would seem.

Hope that you guys get some good news soon.

Hey you do it up the way we usually do it up around here - the practical and routine become exotic of sorts.

I hope BubTar feels better soon.

Sorry about poor BubTar--I hope he's on the mend already!

Janet said...

Poor little guy! I hope that he's better for the big night tomorrow.

Next Tuesday?!?! Oh that is so wrong.
Hope BubTar is feeling better soon, but not before you sneak enough cuddles.

Hope BubTar is feeling right as rain in time for Halloween!

speaking of rain...it is supposed to rain here on Halloween night. That is always a treat. Hope your Halloween does not get rained on and BubTar is ready for some treats.

I could just strangle these people.

Hug Bubtar for me.

Mad Hatter said...

Oh man! You had a pizza combo together? Envy.

Amy said...

I hope Bubtar is feeling better today!

And next tuesday...that sucks :( But at least that isn't too far away.

kittenpie said...

How frustrating. Waiting for results, being sick in time for Hallowe'en, blah.

Yeah, we haven't had time off together since the summer. It sucks.

Mimi said...

Well, I hope everyone feels better soon and that you can manage the wait ... gah!

Also, we go on dates to the grocery store too. It feels so WEIRD to be out, the both of us, without the Munchkin who likes to yell at us whenever we touch each other ...
