Fever and bands

Yesterday, Mike called me at work to tell me Jude was not acting like himself...again. He wasn't eating, was rather lethargic, and also a bit grumpy. He then called back to tell me that Jude had a temp of 101 under his arm, well crud. So I raced home to size up the situation, and see what I thought we needed to do. By the time I got home from work Mike had placed cool rags on Jude, and administered Tylenol. Luckily he had gotten his fever down some, and Jude was resting. The old "let the fever burn out what's wrong", doesn't work with Jude because of his seizure medication. I really feel his fever is because his two front teeth are coming in, so I am not overly worried. Although, I did notice a bit of a rattle in his chest, but he had been crying. So we will keep a watch on him. He was rather restless all night, but this morning he was sleeping soundly when I left ... of course. I was worried last night because his fever got pretty high, but it did go down, and according to Mike is still down at 10:30.

Here is a video of Emily working with Jude to keep his head up. This is from the same strand of pictures I left before.

Emily went to spend the night with a friend last night, and Mike and I relaxed watching tv. Actually, I watched TV while tying tiny black bows on my sisters wedding invitations. It was a nice night. Anyway, there is a music channel on right now that is hosting informational movies, and more on bands that are attending Lalapalooza 2009 in Chicago. Mike had recorded the show for me, and he had me come upstairs to watch it. Guess what it was? Yep the old documentary Depeche Mode 101. That's right people, I was a little 80's/90's waver girl. Laugh all you want, but I had a blast in the old days. I had the cute black patten loafers, the big wavy hair, the black jacket that matched my shoes, that went over my Z Cavaricci or Pepe jeans. Many of the mid thirties crowd is laughing right now reading this, because you know you were wearing THE SAME THING. Anyway, my mother grew up loving Led Zeppelin, and taught me to love them. I grew up adoring Depeche Mode, and still love them. I caught my husband smiling at me as I sang every lyric to every song featured on the show last night. I have always been a fan of music because I believe you can find so much emotion in the lyrics written by true artists. So float back in time with me for a second and admit you remember the cover to this album.

I have to admit I have been listening to their songs all morning at work.

Besides Jude's fever it was a relaxful night, and I enjoyed my time with Mike.

That video was so cute. It's like he knew that if he turned towards Emily, he'd be rewarded with a kiss. They are so cute together. Hope you saw my other email about Smile Box goodies I'd like to donate. Jenn

So funny, Jenn, with the clothing comments! So sorry to hear about Jude's fever. If Faith gets a fever for ANY reason, she goes right into the seizures, too. So we are super overprotective about getting her around people. It's crazy how things like that will trigger them.

I absolutely love the video. I just want to reach through the screen and give him a big kiss.

What a wonderful smile he has!!!
