Camping and Sick Boys

Chase and I LOVE to go camping. I have been dying to go but haven't because I was really worried about keeping Kael warm. Well this past weekend we took the plunge and went camping. We talked about it a couple weeks ago with Chase's parents. They wanted to go and so did we. So we set a date. Little did we know that the weekend we wanted to go was when the temp was going to drop and storms were gonna hit. Great! So I panic a little. We are a month away from the end of RSV season and Kael hasn't gotten sick once. Even when he got his shots they said he would probably get sick and run a fever. Well he didn't, he was just a little cranky cause the mean ol' nurse stabbed him four times. Chase had bought this AWESOME sleeping bag a while ago for his hunting trip. If you buy a right and a left you can zip them together without unfolding them and all the hassle, plus they are for -35 degree weather. Yup minus freakin' 35!! Like we would ever sleep outside when it's that cold. Anyways I told him to go get another one for this trip cause I didn't want Kael to freeze. So this kid has been a tank since before he was even born. He went thru a 24hr labor and it didn't even phase him. His heart rate never changed and normally babies are pooped after an ordeal like being born and he was wide awake and ready to take on the world. He has been around runny nosed kids(and parents of the runny nosed kids) and hasn't caught a thing. So I tell myself not to worry this kid is tough, he will be fine and "its only one night." Everything was good to go until Friday morning when we woke up to leave and Kael had a slight cough. I freak out and call the Dr. and he said no worries see how he does over the weekend and if he doesn't get better bring him in on Monday. So we head off, have an really great trip. It was just us and Chase's parents and so fun. Friday was beautiful just a little chilly, that night is got cold but we slept warm thanks to the awesome sleeping bags and Saturday was a little windy. But no rain, thank goodness. Kael did so good except the cold made his cold worse. Took him to the doc on Monday and he said that he has bronciallitis(sp?) No runny nose, No fever. Just a really yucky cough. He has to do breathing treatments for two weeks, and they did the test for RSV and we will find out in a couple days if he has that. Dr said doubt it cause no fever but we will see. Hopefully not though. Also Chase got sick too. Me a little bit but not as bad as Chase and Kael. My poor sicky boys. 
Just arrived and getting ready to be bundled
Chase and the marshmellow man

All toasty warm
he 'hates' his treatments, he'll be fine for a second but by the end of it he's screaming 
I love the look on his face, looks like he's saying "Dude! A little help here!"
Sick Chase
Sick Kael
Blanky and Binkie
Kael won't go to sleep unless he has a blanky to cuddle with and most of the time his binkie too. The combo is sweet bliss for this little guy.

Oh he is too cute! Refering to Kael of course! :) The camping trip looked like fun. Trav is also growing one of those beard things. It's been two weeks and he says he'll shave it Thurs. Sigh. I can't wait for the cactus to be gone :) I've been meaning to post a comment since Christmas- how does time go by so fast? But we had fun hanging out with you guys and hope parenting is as fun as you make it look! Hope your boys get better soon!

Hey Shees, i don't think kael has rsv, but i hope he get's better. hey i have a machine for braiden's breathing treatments too and it came with a pacifier attachment if you want to borrow it you can i think he would be a little more comfortable with a paci but it's up to you. It's never been used and so it's steril. Braiden hasn't touched it or anything. let me know if you would like it! it was good seeing you guys tonight. Chase you sound horrible hope you feel better!

Oh dang Shalyse! It's been a while since I checked your blog out and I can not believe how big Kael has gotten!! He is such a little stud. I can empathize with ya on the breathing treatment too!! Such a pain. Glad to see you guys are doing good!!
