On Saturday the 26th, we did the cake thing - hence the mess. Nyah thought it was great. She helped me make the cake and kept wanting to sing happy birthday to him. She tried to help him blow out the candle, but he touched it and put it out too quick.
Here is the before.
And so begins the "after" . . .
And also for your viewing pleasure is a video of him waving at the camera. It cracks me up when he begins to wave and all of a sudden notices that he has chocolate all over his hands.
Later that morning we went for a ride. This was mostly for Nyah, but if you will notice Treyson loves it already. There are a couple of foals down at the corrals and we spent some time loving on them. That was probably the best part.
We ended up finishing Treyson's celebration with one of the biggest adventures/experiences yet. That afternoon we had an Eagle Court of Honor for Nyah's friend Trevor. Immediately following the Court of Honor, Blake and I were heading to attend a banquet in Nampa for work. Heart 'n Home was winning an award for Integrity Counts from the BBB. We were all dressed up and had put Trey in the car to head to have our friend Milly watch the kids. After we put Trey in the car seat and started to drive, he started screaming. I was driving and I asked Blake to check on him, but he was convinced that it was just normal screaming. (I tried to explain it wasn't, but Blake thinks screaming all sounds the same.) Anyway, we had about a 10-15 minute drive and he screamed the entire way. Lots of fun!
After we got there, I ran my hand over Treyson's head and noticed he had a big fluid bulge on the right side of his head. It was in the shape of a circle and about the size of an apple. The circle itself was about three fingers thick and was squishy, kind of like a water balloon or a blister. I know this may not be making much sense, but it was very wierd. Anyway, long story short we ended up heading to the emergency room rather than going to the banquet. It was a bit stressful. I sat in the back with Trey and tried to keep him awake. He was sooo sleepy and I couldn't tell if he was just tired or if he was lapsing into to unconciousness. Unnerved me a bit.
The ER even said it was extremely odd and kept asking if he had hit his head. He hadn't and I have no idea where it came from. We ended up doing a cat scan. Trey got mad, but we didn't have to sedate him, so that was good. He just screamed and squirmed a bit. The CT turned out fine and they sent us home. They just said to watch him. No one knows what it is, other than that it is unusual and out of the ordinary. I tried to take pictures of it, but it doesn't show up. There is no bruise, just the fluid. You will just have to take my word that it feels really wierd.
