Calder spent Tuesday and Wednesday on the couch with a sore throat and fever. He literally only got up to go to the bathroom. He was so out of it that I even put the cup of apple juice to his lips when he needed a drink. Then last night he woke up puking, so naturally he is back on the couch today. Calder's fever seems to have subsided, so he has perked up a bit this morning. Calder also hasn't puked since 7 am, which gives me a bit of hope that we are making our way out of the woods.
Now - Can I keep this bug at bay?? Typically I get sick just as Calder is on the mend. Time will tell ;-)

I had my weekly appointment with my OBGYN yesterday. Everything continues to be good! I am 5 days from my due date (Tuesday, March 5). She let me know that most women have their babies within a week of their due date - so hopefully I won't be over more than that (in fact, hopefully I won't be over at all!). She wants to discuss induction/c-section next week. At this point I am doing my best not to think about either option. I have always felt that babies come when they are ready and unless there is some compelling reason for me to force this baby out, I will be putting up a fight to let it stay where it is. I need to stop right there - I am getting fired up and ready for a fight - one that I hopefully won't need to be in :-) I am my dad's daughter.

The Shellbrook Elks have a chance to win the Saskatchewan Senior AAA Hockey championship tomorrow night in Rosetown. Game time is 8:30. It will be a great game! Provided my boy is on the mend and this baby stays where it is, I will see you there :-)
