We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year! Doug's mom, dad, and Grandpop came and spent the holiday with us, and it was a lot of fun. We ate far too much, watched a ton of football, played cards, and basically just relaxed. Carrington did her "usual"- eating, pooping, sleeping, and being extra cute, and Trey showed off his singing and dancing moves to Yo Gabba Gabba.
We spent Thanksgiving morning at Uncle Adam and Aunt Shannon's house. Allie got to check out baby Carrington (I'm pretty sure she is ready to be a big sister!) and Trey cleaned his Aunt and Uncle's house! Yes, that's right... Trey loves to clean, and as soon as he spotted their Dirt Devil, there was no stopping him- he was a man on a mission!
We did have a scare on Friday evening. Grandma Connie noticed a few small red bumps on Trey's back, but we didn't think too much of it. On Saturday morning, Trey was covered in a rash that continued to get worse and worse by the hour. The on-call nurse kept telling us to give Benadryl and not to worry (unless it went into his mouth or he had a hard time breathing), but by Saturday evening I was a mess and had decided to go to the emergency room. Doug talked me out of it (after we consulted with our childhood pediatrian from Northern Virginia), but we kept Trey in our bed, just to monitor his breathing. On Monday we headed straight to the doctor where they confirmed that Trey is severly allergic to Amoxicillan/Penecillan (the -cillan's). I was relieved that we knew what was wrong, but it completely freaked me out! We also found out that one of Trey's tubes have fallen out- this isn't a huge surprise since they are only temporary and last 6-12 months, but we had hoped to get through the winter before they fell out. Now I'm praying we don't go through another cold season with ear infections!
