Recent Video

I made a little montage of a few recent pics and a video of Connie's ever-growing abilities. He's doing so well and we continue to praise God every day for this gift.

Okay, so it wasn't teething

Conway was in again today to see the pediatrician because he has had a rash on his trunk since Tuesday afternoon. After one glance, our pediatrician said immediately, "That looks like a classic case of Roseola." The definition is: Age 6 months to three years, presence of a fine pink rash, mainly on the trunk, fever during the preceeding 2 to 4 days that cleared within 24 hours before the rash appeared, child only mildly ill during the time with the fever, child acting fine now. She said it's actually more likely to be an enterel virus but they don't all have names. She said the rash shouldn't be causing him to itch or anything and he shouldn't be contagious as long as he has no fever. So, turns out it was a virus after all. His eating has picked back up some today so hopefully that's all it was.

Chalk it up to Teething

The doctor never called yesterday to say that Connie's strep test had come back and since his lingering fever never goes above 99 or 100 and the fact that he's irritable and biting on his fingers, I think it's safe to assume that this is teething related. He's still pretty miserable and his eating has really stalled.

There was an article in the paper today about Camp Rhythm, a summer camp for heart kids that is put on by St. Louis Children's Hospital. I've heard a lot about it through our local support group and have heard the parents and kids alike rave about it. Connie will be able to go be a mini-camper when he's five and once he's eight, if he chooses, he can do the overnight, week-long camp. Here's the link if you want to see the pics and read the article.
