State Fair

We went to the Texas State Fair again this year, and just like last, it was nothing but a good time. We went with our friends Hugh and Caitlin and met up with some other friends from work. You can't go wrong with a petting zoo, pig races, ferris wheel and of course some deep fried food. I had a corn dog and funnel cake and Trent had a deep fried snickers. Delish. I guess it's allowed once a year, right?

Trent has had a lonely week this week after being quarantined to our room for the past 5 days. Aiden got sick last Thursday, I thought he had ear infections. I took him to the doctor and he tested positive for influenza A (most likely H1N1, but they didn't do another test). On Saturday Trent started coughing, had a fever, and looked pretty terrible. On Sunday, we tried to get him into Care Now to see a doctor. They called us and said it was a four hour wait, so we waited and went in at noon. After 2.5 hours there, numerous tests, chest x-rays, a shot and a breathing treatment we found out Trent had influenza and pneumonia. Of course the doctor said we needed to be very careful so Aiden didn't get sick on top of what he that meant Trent was to be quarantined. He got lonely pretty fast. He told me how much he hated our room. I am just glad both my boys are feeling better and we can have him around again. It was hard not having any help with Aiden. I am glad he is feeling better and especially happy that I didn't get it!
