Thursday Angie began feeling bad and running fever. By Friday she was feeling a little sick, but better. We went ahead with our plans and went to church for Christmas Eve services. By the time we came home Angie was running fever again and was in bed by 8:30. David awoke Christmas morning at 4:30. We could not get him back down, Angie was still running fever. We decided to have our family Christmas at 5:00, no one was sleeping anyway. By 6:30 Angie and David were back in bed asleep. Greg was cancelling our plans of being with his family by 8:00. At 11:30 David began running fever and so Angie called her family and also cancelled the plans to travel to see them.
So, for David's first Christmas it did not seem much like Christmas, except that at least the 3 of us were together and we did have about an hour of a "traditional Christmas morning."
