Daddy went shopping at the Avery Outfitters store today! Believe it or not, they are located in Memphis. He got me a new hat...but it appears to be a little big! He says he'll hang onto it until I get big enough to wear it.

Dr's said today that they finally identified the type of infection I had in my line and it is the type that most kiddos have when they are teething....difference being that I don't have the white knights in my body right now to fight it off. Antibiotics will help me. I am also apparently dealing with a virus of some sort, kinda like a cold, only nothing they can do for this one. Good news is no pneumonia! I had a transfusion of platelets today because my counts dropped below the line. That seemed to perk me up. Mom says I am being crabby today, but she just doesn't get how much this teething thing stinks!

All in all, I am hanging in there. They let me eat whatever I want...which means today I had sweet potatoes with brown sugar, chocolate milk, mac & cheese, and chocolate cake! Well, I have a ton of fun to have in the next 2 hrs before I finally let Mommy and Daddy go to sleep so I better get started! Thanks to all for reading my note -- talk to you soon!

  1. Too sweet, Avery! Brought tears to my eyes. You are such a fighter. Your strength is inspiring. Hang in there kiddo.

  2. Daddy did a good job on the Avery hat! You are growing so fast, you will fit into it in no time- but you look SO cute in it now! I am jealous of your meals, it sounds like you are keeping an appetite to keep your energy and body going! I hope your teething is bearable, just remember the more teeth you get the more good food you can try and later you will collect surprises from a magical tooth fairy that visits while you sleep! Keep up your spirits Tinkerbell and we will be thinking of you and your momma and daddy until I come and visit you guys in April! Love you angel.

  3. Mac and cheese and chocolate cake?!? Wow! Do you think your mommy will let me eat that too when I come to visit? I sure hope so! :) Love you, Peanut! Give your mommy and daddy a kiss from me!
