I'm Outie...

...for a bit.

The Pea had been nursing (what I thought was) a cold for several days last week.  Then, Saturday night his temperature shot up to 105.1.  (And can I just say that the on-call nurse's "reassurances" that they usually only see brain damage with fevers over 106, so it was my call whether or not to bring him in was not as helpful as it might have been under other circumstances?)  Diagnosis:  RSV with an accompanying ear infection.

My child usually sleeps from 7ish to 7ish.  The steroids he's taking have left me with a demented howler monkey until 11 p.m.  But still up at his usual 7ish.

So you won't be seeing me here on Novels During Naptime for the next week or so.  And judging by the 608 posts in my GoogleReader, I won't be commenting much on your blogs either.  I apologize in advance.  The Pea apologizes in advance.


  1. Hope your little guy feels well soon!

  2. Take care of your family and yourself. I have been there! We will be here when you get back.

    I hope he feels better soon!


  3. I know how you feel. I hope he gets better. See ya when you get time

  4. I hope your little guy's feeling better soon!

  5. I'm so sorry for you! RSV is so scary, hope he gets feeling better soon and no more 11pm howler monkeys! I've been there :)

  6. Dang! So sorry. I hate it when my kds are sick, especially that sick. We have cold here only and it's keeping me from writing and commenting everywhere I want to.

    P.S. I'm so glad I found your blog. It's awesome!

  7. Darnit! I'm so sorry. I hope he (and you) start feeling better soon. :)
