Colby vs the flu

The last week or so has been a long one. Colby started throwing up last Sunday. Because he has a shunt in his head, whenever he starts throwing up, has a fever, gets lethargic, we need to first rule out that it's not his shunt. It's hard because those are all the signs of the common flu, which kids get. But with him, we first need to ensure that all is well with his head. So, off to the ER we went Sunday evening. Long story short, turned out to just be the flu. It put our little guy out for a couple days. Then it turned into a nasty cough. But now, he's back to his happy little self.

He continues to expand his vocabulary, often trying to repeat what he hears. I love hearing is little voice babble or try to put words together!

I'm glad to hear that it was the flu this time. Also glad to hear that he is better. :) How many words is he saying now? Maleia will be starting speech therapy next week, she can say about 20 words or so, but they are not clear. She leaves off the end of the words. Ex: Dog is Da. Anyway, I am so happy that he is doing so great!!!
