Curse of Friday the 13th

Well another 13th of the month has just past us again. This time it was friday the 13th again. I lost Skyla on Friday the 13th so as you can imagine it was a hard day for me. By 9pm that night my night turned into another bad friday the 13th.
I spent the day at playgroup with Jai and all the mums and bubs. Since having Jai i have met some wonderful girls and now each week we try meet up at ones house. On my way to stopped off at the shops to pick up a chicken for lunch. I also grabbed a drink from a drink machine. Put my money in and pressed number 12. What happens!! I get the drink from spot number 13!! Wrong number and wrong drink. Next i head to my friends place who lives at house number (you guessed it) 13! I also had to drive passed where we had a service for Skyla that they stuffed up big time (another story). Anyways we get to my friends place and have a lovely catch up with the girls. It was great seeing everyone again as it had been a while. Jai has had a cold pretty much the last 2-3 mths straight. Anyway we had lunch then noticed Jai felt a bit warm. took his temp and it wasnt really high. 37.8 Gave him some panadol and went home. The rest of the arvo he seem a bit wingy and was slowly getting hotter and hotter. By 8pm he was 39. I stripped him down to his nappy and gave ahim panadol. sat him downstairs with us. at 830pm he was on Blake and did a little shake which freaked us out a bit. i took him off Blake and sat him with me. We have a family history of febrile convulsions as i had 13 as a baby and Blake had 6 and Jai was yet to have one. Well come 9pm and he fitted. It scared the hell out of me. It was friday the 13th again. How can this happen. i thought i was gonna loose him too. His fit lasted about 7min. During it he started vomiting so i was worried about him choking. I called an ambulance but they didnt get here for about 17min. By the time they arrived he was still out of it and moaning. It took a lot out of him but luckily he was ok. We spent overnight in hospital and found no reason for his fever or fit. Hopefuly this will be his first and last as i really dont need anything else to happen to my kids. So as you can see i am cursed when it comes to friday the 13th!
