It's been a really crazy week. The boys' dad went away last weekend so they came back home a couple of days early. The excitement started right away with Seth limping around with a sore foot. He has a lump that has been on his foot for some time now. We have been to the doctor and had an x-ray over a year ago, but they didn't find anything alarming. Anyhow, Seth asked me to take him to the doctor again as it is causing him discomfort. We went on Monday afternoon and she has given a referral to an Orthopedic Surgeon because she is not sure what the problem is. She said I could expect quite a wait to see the specialist. Perhaps 6 months or so. She also gave me a slip to get another x-ray as well. I had planned to give it to his dad so that he could take him one day next week, but I received a call from the Orthopedic Surgery department at the hospital saying that Seth was booked to see the doctor this coming Monday. We got the x-ray done yesterday so that he has all the information he needs. I am grateful that the appointment date is so soon, but couldn't help having a few moments of fear wondering if they are more concerned than letting on.
Sidney had to be picked up from daycare late Tuesday afternoon. He had a high fever and has a terrible cough. Luckily, it's just a bad cold and not strep throat, which is going around. He did, however, feel so bad that he hardly ate, slept a lot and was good as gold for a day and a half. He is still feeling sick but is his normal sassy self today. Seth started complaining of a headache yesterday and I had to keep them both home today. Did I mention Tyler was also sick this week and was here on Wednesday and is coming back today? I am getting the sniffles. I am going to have so much work to catch up on come Monday...ahhhh! This also sucks because one of my girls had a birthday yesterday and I am supposed to go to her party tonight. Don't care how shitty I feel, I am going out. The boyfriend can hold down the fort tonight.
