Great Weekend and Quick ER Visit

I have to say that I am finding it hard to blog..... I would like to keep the Happy Birthday blog up for a long, I do not want it to be pushed down. Nick is 6 and he had a wonderful birthday. We took the boys to the movies to see The Wimpy Kid. We were a little skeptical about the age bracket for the movie, but the kids really like it and were well behaved. Then we came home, boys played Wii and then onto cupcakes and ice cream. Nick received his 'big gift' from us which was a spy camera ATV360. He has been asking for this for a while now. Saturday was a beautiful day and the kids played outside all day. Nick stayed in for most of the day, I think he was worn out from his birthday. He took a shower right before dinner and then started having the chills. He said he was freezing even though it was 70 degrees outside. Sure enough, by 6pm he was spiking a fever. I took him to the ER. He had the best port access at the ER for the first time. The drew blood on the first prick and the nurse was great. His counts ended up being okay so he received an antibiotic and were sent home.
Sunday we had scheduled to go to Auntie Michele's house for Easter dinner and an egg hunt. Greg took the 2 boys and I stayed home with Nick. He was tired from the ER visit and we felt it would be safe to keep him home for the day. It was a good thing we did because he slept for 5 hours that day and feeling great once he woke up. Monday Greg took him to clinic and his counts were improved from Saturday night.

Quick story before I sign off:
Saturday: Nick and Joey were playing outside and decided to get a Popsicle out of the frig in the garage. Joey grabbed one and went back to playing basketball. I noticed Nick was lingering around the frig and I asked him what he was doing. He just replied and said nothing, with a smirk on his face and then he headed inside. Sunday: Greg comes home with the boys and he noticed the name Colby written on the frig with a black sharpie pen. Greg could tell right away it was not Colby's handwriting. Nick was at the table eating and Greg asked him if had written on the frig, his response: "No, but I bet the person that did that really regrets doing it."
