We've been blog AWOL lately. Shawn is away for the week on business, so I am the single mom around here. (Amy - I swear, I don't know how you do it!) We are surviving so far. At least the kids are eating and sleeping! Shawn and I always joke that whenever he goes away, one of the kids is either sick or teething. Well, this week, it is both (both sick, just one teething). Clare has been drooling up a storm again lately, so I think something is working its way through in her little mouth. Plus she's been under the weather with a cold (pretty bad on Saturday, but much better now). Then on Monday, Jamie had a high fever and was not his usual energetic self. Put it this way, he voluntarily took a nap, something that hasn't happened for months. Thankfully, other than some congestion, I have escaped the bugs going around so far. Just excusing our absence here! Shawn returns super-late Thursday night (technically on Friday morning), and Friday is Clare's sedated echo. So I will definitely be posting sometime on Friday. I have to admit as Friday draws closer, I am getting more nervous about this echo. Clare has gone so long without any intervention that I dread that time's up. Especially since tonight, as I was getting her in her pj's, I noticed her feet were purplish. We haven't seen that in a long time. When I pushed in on her sole, it never profused back - just a big white thumbprint. It could be that the colder weather is hitting, and her feet were just chilly. But they didn't feel that cold, and I fear it is something more.
