A week to remember

OMG!!! What a week that we've just ended!!! So many events, all so meaningful and important in their own way!
August 18th - Bryce's first birthday
August 21st - The Emmy awards (my hubby was nominated for outstanding VFX for Ben 10)
August 22nd - Bryce's mom B-day (33 yo)

In the middle of all these wonderful events, we've also had our share of not so happy moments.
Right at the beginning of the week, Bryce started having fever. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 102 F (38,8). If he didn't seem to care or be bothered by it in the first two days, reason for which I basically didn't give him anything, except for keeping him hydrated, by the 3rd day, he was kind of overwhelmed by it, a bit lethargic, not so active. We decided to give him some Ibuprofen, and after the first dose he already felt so much better and more active. No second dose was necessary.
Now with the temperature gone, some more stuff to deal with. A bit of diarrhea. Only 3 stools a day and just a bit runny. Again, because he was not bothered by it, I basically only gave him some probiotic, a bit of menthe tea and some rice. And after about 3-4 days, his stools were back to normal again.
So, what would have been the cause to all this? Well, we suspect it was a combination of both a little cold virus (as he was coughing a bit, but no runny nose) and teething (as all 4 up incisors came in at once).
Today, after more than a week, he's back to his old self, happy, starting to eat solids again and not in pain.
What a week!!! Not to forget it so easily!!!


  1. Happy birthday to you too, mommy Clara!
    And congratulations to Mr Bryce dad!

    Glad the little one is back in business...

  2. Thanks, MQ!!! Always happy to see out little ones healthy and not in pain.
