We took another trip to the doctor today. Owen had a fever of 103.8 that wouldn't break with Motrin or Tylenol or 24 hours of antibiotics. That's when I heard that nasy P word...PNEUMONIA! I won't even tell you all of the directions that my mind has wandered. I am quite certain that it has replayed the episode where Em had "pneumonia episodes" for an entire year...only to end up in ICU as I walked into her room to see her oxygen monitor drop to a lovely 32!!! Yes, the rational part of me says that this is Owen not Emma, and it's not going to go there. After all...she was aspirating...he is not, right? He's not, right? UGH!! My mind needs to go to sleep. I think that my mind cannot think very clearly because of lack of sleep.
So, to help my mind to feel better (that's what a momma has to do, right) I have decided to attempt to eat my body weight in carbs. Yes, last nights snack consisted of 3 Pizza Hut Breadsticks (MMMM...that was my #1 craving when I was pregnant with Owen), a big plate of pasta with butter and cheese and a Coke. Tonight, I am having some rice, some nachos, and a Coke. Yup, I am feeling much much better!
