After we got home from thanksgiving dinner Lincoln was not being his normal self. He was crying a lot, not really eating and felt a little warm to me. So Josh ran to the store to get a thermometer. It seemed as though he had some gas and was not feeling well from that but then we checked his temp. and it was at 99. There was a site online that said at 99 he has fever, so we called the doctor and they had us come in. They checked his temp again at the doctor and it was down to 98.2, and Lincoln was sound a sleep being so good. So when the doctor came in I said can you tell we are new at this and that our mom's are gone! He laughed and said we get this all the time. We talked with him a little about making sure he stays healthy and what things we needed to do and he just stressed staying away from anyone who is sick and anyone in a house with someone who is sick. He told us how some people will think you are being to protective, and some will understand and depending on the kind of people Josh and I are depends on who you allow in the house. Josh told him we are kind of push overs and he said well then keep him away for 4 weeks. We asked about flying home for Christmas and gave us good advice for that, but also told us its mostly up to us and how we feel about it. So If you don't see us for another 3 weeks you know why! It cost 25 bucks, but really made us feel good about things!
