Trevor was a trooper. When we got there he was waving to everyone and all smiles. When we saw the first nurse in the waiting room she had to put a pulse-ox sensor on Trevor's finger. So Trevor pointed his finger out and gave it too her. He did cry while she took his temperature though. His pulse-ox was 99% and no fever so that was good.
We get into the curtained area and see a nurse who checked his ears, nose, and thoart and listened to his breathing. Trevor just sat still and let her do what ever needed to be done. So by this point I figure he's just really tired...But when that nurse left he wiggles himself onto the floor and starts getting toys and books out the diaper bag. Every once in awhile he looks at the nurses station and starts waving at all the nurses. He is such a flirt.
After 2 doctors and another nurse we are told that he has croup - without the cough. At least we didn't go to the ER for nothing. They gave me some steroids to give him right there and when we finished the syringe of medicine the nurse and I said, "Good boy Trevor!" and Trevor sat up straight and started clapping for himself. I tell you this kid just doesn't have an ego problem... The doctors did tell me that it's contagious and that Alex will almost definitely get it too. Apparently it is common for preemies in their first 5 years of life and most common in the winter. However, cold air and cold liquids help it a lot so I got that going for me right now.
Everything is good and we're just waiting for Alex to get it now...Plus Kris is sick right now and isn't getting very much sleep so I'm sure eventually I'll be getting something too...

I am continuing my mentoring duties at what is now Royal Oak Middle School (they combined the two middle schools this year). We have a good group of kids this year and it would be nice to bring home more medals and trophies.
So now when you're asked if you know a celebrity you can say Yes I know a Google Celebrity. :)
