Doctor Visits

Well... yesterday I took the boys to the doctor. Jonathan went for a checkup and Aaron went for sickness.

Aaron was running a 102 fever and had been for almost two days. He also had a cough and runny nose and wasn't eating or sleeping for more than about half an hour at a time. (Made for a few long nights!) They tested him for RSV and thankfully, it was negative, but he does have a bronchiolitis infection as well as ear infections in both ears. They gave him an antibiotic for his ears and he has to use a Nebulizer several times a day to try to get rid of the cough and such. Today, he seems to be doing a bit better.

As for Jonathan, things are good. The doctor says he's doing great and she is pleased with how he's growing. When he was born, he was 4lbs 13ozs and 15 1/2 inches long. At the doctor yesterday, he was 5lbs 12 1/2ozs and almost 19 inches long!!! I knew he was growing, but that's just crazy! He must be getting miracle grow in his milk or something. That's a lot of growing for a little boy. It's too fast for me! I want him to stay little. Not forever, but at least for a while.

Jonathan is three weeks old and still sleeps a lot. He will occasionally stay awake for an hour and a half or two hours (usually in the middle of the night) but he is staying awake for longer periods of time during the day too. It has killed Aaron to not be able to hold him all week. He cries a lot when I tell him that he can't hold baby Jonathan. He really loves his little brother.

That's about all that's going on.
