This year for Thanksgiving we planning on going to Grandma and Grandpa B.'s in Arizona. We were going to leave Wednesday night and drive all through the night so Oskar could sleep. But that morning Oskar woke up with a cold that he must have gotten from another baby he was around earlier in the week. So we all decided it was probably a good idea to stay home and not risk getting G&G sick. But it was really disappointing. So for the second year in a row we stayed in LA for Thanksgiving. This year we went to a park and had a picnic lunch complete with turkey sandwiches (we splurged and got the expensive and delicious Tillamook cheese), baby oranges, and crackers and cheese. We were invited to Thanksgiving dinner by some friends but we didn't want to get anybody sick. We did end up going to our friends' place for a little while to have pie. Hopefully next year we can at least make it out of the city.
Then a week later Oskar got infected again! This time with a much much MUCH worse sickness. It was complete with diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy, not eating, sleepless nights, and a visit to the ER. It was so terrible. And about halfway through the disease week Joel came down too and he couldn't help me take care of Oskar. After about a week and much much worrying (I think I called Jared four or five times (he's going to get annoyed sooner or later)) he started to feel better. And then another couple of days later he was back to normal. It was preeeeetty rough though. After all that just dealing with his normal eating issues are a piece of cake.
