Placeholder Redux

It’s been about a month, and the baby’s currently asleep, so time for another placeholder post.

Since my last ping, the little guy has been wrestling with various ailments. He had a moderately bad cold during the end of October. Just as he was recovering from that (and we got back to him sleeping through the night), he had his 4-month immunizations and reacted badly to them. Now he seems to have some kind of respiratory infection again, causing him to have troubled sleep while being in otherwise good spirits. We continue to watch him closely.

My wife and I received the H1N1 vaccine on Thursday, being in the high-priority group due to our infant son and sharing a house with someone who’s 8 months pregnant. Now both of us seem to have mild flu symptoms. Whether this is coincidence or not may never be truly known.

Other than dealing with seasonal disease, life continues in its current holding pattern. I read and make notes for writing projects when the boy allows. My wife is in the final days of thesis writing. Sammy continues to grow at an alarming rate. Patient contentment is the order of the day.

There is one item of news that is also worth relaying, but it hasn’t been fully cleared for public consumption yet. Expect an announcement in a day or two.  🙂
