The icing on the cake??? Now, I'm sick! That's right, I've got strep throat. We're having tons of fun at the Northcutt household! :)
Friday night was ROUGH!!! We have not experienced a night of pretty much no sleep ever! At least when Reid was a newborn he'd sleep a few hours at a time. He's had a runny nose, but we could tell Friday as we were putting him down for bed that he was not feeling good. He was up crying for most of the night. Matt and I alternated going up and rocking him - the only way that he would sleep is if we were holding him. Saturday morning he just wanted to be held and he'd lay his little head down. We took him into the after hours pediactric clinic and they did an X-ray on his chest and discovered that he has PNEUMONIA!!! On one hand, we knew it had to be something more than just a cold because he has never acted like that, but we were surprised it had just suddenly turned into that. It was literally over night! The doctor was not concerned about it - it's not as serious as it used to be. They started him on antibiotics and told us that it could take 1-2 weeks for him to be well. But, today he is acting so much better and is playing, sleeping, and back to his normal self! We'll just be taking it easy though for the next couple weeks. (Matt laughed because I asked the doctor if we had to stay in - I'll be so bored!)
ps...if we hung out with you and your child last week, don't worry! Pneumonia is not contagious. I asked the doctor because I was so worried about all of our friends who we saw last week!
