We had a big scare last night. After I put AJ to bed, I could hear him moaning in his sleep. He had never done that before, so Tom and I went in to check on him. When I put my hand on him, he was burning up. I woke him and he was lethargic and listless. When we took his temperature, it was 104.5, so off to the ER we went. He was diagnosed with an inner ear infection, and the chest x-ray showed a mild case of pneumonia. They administered a rocephin shot and a tylenol/motrine combination. His temperature quickly responded, and Aleck began feeling a little better while we where still in the ER. They sent us home with antibiotics. AJ saw Dr. Radimecky, his pediatrician, today. Dr. Radimecky assured us that it is not uncommon for babies to have pneumonia and there is nothing to worry about.
Please keep our little AJ in your prayers.
- Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!
