Rough day. For me at least. The morning was great though. We took Grant to the blueberry farm to pick blueberries. He enjoyed it for about 5 minutes then he got hot, had a snowcone and we headed for my parents pool. He got in the pool for about 10 minutes and then felt bad and was ready to go home. Poor guy just does not have a lot of energy right now. Seeing him like this just gets to me. I tried to take a nap when he did, but my mind keep wandering back to his cancer. I ended up in tears and left the house to go get a pedicure. Half way there I realized that was stupid because there was NOTHING I could do to make myself feel better. A pedicure is not going to make this go away. Then, after sitting in front of the nail salon crying, I felt even worse. Here I was, parked in front of my favorite nail salon while my sweet little boy is at home, feeling truely terrible, and HE can't go anywhere he wants to. HE can't go to his favorite restraunt that is located next door to MY salon. So, after a few minute pitty party, I went inside, sat in the chair, and called my friend who made me smile. Thanks Tiff!!

When I got home I found Grant on the couch looking terrible and fussy. David and I decided to go for a car ride with him to the store and to pick up some Mexican food for him. Grant ate a great lunch, but then pooped out again. He felt a little warm to me so I took his temp. He is currently running a temp of 99.2. We have already called the Hospital. They basically said if he gets up to 100.4 and stays there for a bit, then we need to bring him in to the emergency room.

Please say some prayers that this does not happen.
