In Which Connor Feels Hot And Cold

Connor slept for two hours last night and is apparently planning on staying up all night too, which makes me once again incredibly grateful for our awesome night nurse.  Otherwise I would probably be less than chipper tomorrow morning. 

The little guy seems to have something going on, though we're not sure what it is.  He seems to only be popping a fever in the afternoons and early evenings, but in the morning and in the wee hours of the night he's fine.  I'm not sure exactly what's going on there, but the temperature fluctuations are enough for him to have seizures.  He had four yesterday and two today.  We took him in to see the doctor this afternoon, and she ruled out the most obvious things: ear infection, strep throat, etc.  If he's still doing this weird coming-and-going fever thing on Friday, we'll go in again and she'll do some more testing to see if maybe he's got a UTI.  Whee.

Seriously, the little guy needs to feel better soon.  This is no way to spend the summer!

We had a brief meeting this morning at our adoption agency, and one of the little guys there, from India, was the very first kid we inquired about when we started our adoption process ages ago.  As it turned out we didn't qualify for the India program because we were too young, and there was already a family really interested in the kiddo anyway, but it started us on our adoption process.  It was really cool to meet him here a few years later and get the chance to see just how well he was doing with his family!  I thought that was pretty neat. 

Hopefully by the end of the year we'll be the ones bringing our daughter up to visit our agency!  We can't wait to get her home.
