SICK...



For the first time since my little man was born...he has a bad fever...and he is SICK....with capital letters....
It started last night...he is always a little clingy after Mathew gos home for the day...(the little boy I look after)
but last night, he wouldn't get off my lap. He lay there for two hours watching t.v....He was trying so hard to be sociable...chatting to me, and smiling at my youngest daughter....
but he cried when we put his pjs. on him...he must have been achy.

I checked his temp, and it was quite high... 38.6 which is 101 F.
I gave him tylenol, and waited for the temp to come down which it did fairly quickly
and then he played for a while.
But he was still really listless...
I put him to bed at 10pm, but by 1am, the poor little dude had a fever again...so
more tylenol...Nursed him for one whole hour...and tried to put him back to bed...
but no go.
I tried to bring him to bed with me, but he was miserable...and again, was trying to be polite, and kept chatting at me...
"oh...daddy...mommy....ow. nice. oh what's that?"
My hubby had to be up for work at 6am, so I went to the couch with little boy.
I sat up with my poor little furnace until 3:30 am...and then he fell asleep...and I watched him.
Finally at 6am, his fever broke...
but he is still really miserable today...and on tylenol every four hours...

Right now he is sleeping peacefully for probably the first time in 24 hours....

I hate when they are sick...I hope he feels better soon....
If he isn't any better tonight, we are going to have to visit the doctor...
There is too much going around right now... :(

Nothing harder than having a sick kid. Especially one so young. Lucky for us kids seem to bounce back quickly.

HUGS for you Robyn and Jeremy!!!
