Up All Night!

Here is a photo of my baby at 2am this morning! I have been up all night with him, he has been very sick. Coughing, sore throat, and very high fever. It is now 12:30pm and he has just now fallen asleep.

His temp went up so high around 4am that I had to put him in the bathtub to get it down. It breaks my heart when my kids are sick and you feel like you can't do anything to make them feel better. I am wondering if they will do his surgery with him so sick. Of course, with it being Saturday the doctor is not in, I called the hospital to see what they thought. They said, it would be up to the doctor. If he was real congested and sick then they would probably reschedule it. So she said to bring him in at his regular surgery time on Monday morning. The doctor scheduled his surgery for 6:30am on Monday. Hunter will be his first patient of the day. He said he wanted to do him first because he is a kid and he can't have anything to eat or drink before the surgery and it is much harder on little kids to have to wait and they don't understand why they can't eat or drink. I think that was very thoughtful him to think that.

I really wanted to work on my Civil War Diary Quilt today but my butt is dragging after no sleep. Maybe I will get some energy later and work on it. I also have another small stitchery that I need to finish. Actually, if I just sat down to work on it, I could have it finished in 30 minutes or less. I am really liking doing these little stitcheries. I think I will put some in some primitive looking frames and maybe make a wallhaning or two. With them being so small they make wonderful take along projects.
