Nathan was burning up at 3 am this morning... so I gave him some motrin... he slept til 1020... and didnt have a fever again until this evening... i gave him a dose of fever meds 3 hours ago and it hasn't kicked in! And he is starting to cough...
We have ONE well baby appointment... and we get sick 3 days later.
At least he is out for Spring break this week, but there goes MY week, lol.
I guess I will be calling pediatrics in them orning... so if I am away... you know why!
We have an appointment at 840 am... and it couldn't be soon enough! He started puking an hour ago.... poor thing. It's only his second stomach virus ever... and the other ones was a year or more ago.. so it's freaking him out....
Oh no, poor fella. There is nothing worse than puking kids (well of course there are, but ya KWIM). They can never get to the toilet and they ouke where ever there is carpet. Not on the tile floor, not on the wood floor, no on the carpet where you have to scrub and scrub. And then, when we get the puke bug in my house, my one dog tries to clean it up for me and he will if I am not paying attention. Talk about gross.

We went to pediatrics at 840 this morning and didnt get home til 11!!!!
She kept doing different things to make SURE we didn't need to put him on IV fluids... thankfully she finally decided he didn't,lol. But his heart rate was elevated... so she sent him to X-ray to make sure he hadn't aspirated anything while vomiting (only my kid gets xrays EVERY time he goes to the doctor, aren't I lucky? and radioactive?)
There was one *questionable* spot the radiologist thought... so he may go back if the fever doesn't go away when the vomiting stops..
Apparently there is a nasty bug going around here with kids, vomiting and runny diapers, but he only has the vomiting (so far?) i'm hoping it's a different virus, because all of the kids she has seen with the other.. HAVE gotten IV fluids... and we don't want that!
So he got an injection of phenergan and is passed out right now! And I am about to be, he's had me up since 3am!
