First off, let me say that I’m extremely thankful that my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, resurrected three days after his death!
Secondly, and sadly, our Easter did not all go according to plan. It all began Friday night when Evan started running a fever. We gave him Motrin that night and thankfully it subsided. My first thought was that it was due to teething. Evan literally has eight teeth coming through…needless to say, it has been pretty rough on him and on me. Evan then woke up Saturday morning with a temperature of 101 again! His fever was so bizarre. When he would go to sleep, his temperature would immediately start to spike. Once he woke up, we would give him Motrin and his temperature would return to normal. It was just so strange, he only ran fever when he slept.
Well of course, Evan had a temperature of 101 when he woke up on Easter morning. I knew right then and there that we were not going to make it to church and I was so upset.
Like I mentioned earlier, Evan’s temperature would slowly return to normal once we gave him medicine. Thankfully, by lunch time his temperature resumed to normal and we decided that he would be ok to meet the family for our annual Easter gathering.
There is always an Easter egg thief/bully and this year it was my child. What can I say? Evan knew there was money in them and he knew his mama needed a new pair of shoes! Sorry cousin Gracie.
Some little bunny just kept staring at cousin Nora’s eggs, waiting for the opportunity to pounce and take them. Evan’s first cousin, Emma (on the left), also has edible drumstick legs! Don’t you just want to squeeze them?
Evan again had a temperature of 101 when he woke up Monday morning. We decided it was finally time to take him to his pediatrician (since by this time had been running fever on and off for 4 days) and he told us what I didn’t want to hear…”it’s a virus and it just needs to run its course.” I, Dr. Jennifer, pretty much already knew that since Evan was literally pooped out. I guess it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
And thank you cousin Hattie with Gracie Layne Photography for always capturing special moments like these.
