Last weekend I started a cold….
Colin then got it, Simon and then Xavier. Mostly it was just runny/stuffy nose….
Xavier’s nose started running on Tuesday but then he got a fever of 103-104 on wednesday and layed around all day, thursday, friday were the same… on friday evening I decided to give him a dose of tylenol just to get his body a break…
for three days he just stared into space, slept and watched TV…. Sat morning he was feeling a bit better and we went to the mall to get some shopping done… the fever hit again and he was just out of it completely… that night we gave him another dose to help him out… (he was still at about 104)… he played a bit outside sunday morning and again the fever came back and he fell asleep outside while watching me garden…. 5 days of feeling miserable is a lot… we decided to go to the ER… I waited for triage and his fever started going down… faced with an 8 hour wait with both boys I decided to go back home even though hey would have liked to check him out… today has been a ever free day but he is still pretty weak, not eating much but he is playing a bit more…
This morning however, I woke up miserable… I am tired and can hardly keep my eyes open, my nose if stuffy, I have a headache….
Ughh…. I don’t want to be sick anymore!
Hugs! I’m sorry to hear about your hard time. I got the sickest I’ve ever been, toward the end of my last pregnancy. Carissa was sick, too, for a couple of days during that time. Since I’m normally never sick, this was my first time dealing with my baby’s illness while I was ill myself … not fun. But we got through and you will too … these memories give us greater endurance for grappling with the next challenge.
