On the Mend....


I hope this nasty fever is on its way out the door.

Currently, Camp has no fever and is watching Backyardigans.
He woke up this morning with a fever of 102 and was extremely pitiful. I called the drs. office when they opened this morning and they said that if he has a fever with no other symptoms, they assume it's a virus. They said that the fever just has to run its course....3-4 days.
I went to Publix this morning to buy Motrin because the Tylenol just wasn't cutting it. When I came back, Camp and Adam were on the couch and Camp seemed a lot cooler. His temp was 99...the lowest it had been in two days.
He went down for another nap and woke up again with the 102. I gave him Motrin and he slept in my arms/on the couch until about 2:00 this afternoon. He has had no fever since he woke up from that nap.
He ate some lunch and I see that as a good sign seeing that he hasn't had anything but bottles since Friday night.
Adam and I have been nervous wrecks! It's a scary thing when your baby is sick for the first time.....especially with such high temperatures that weren't wanting to budge.
And the funny thing is...I don't see any signs of that tooth anymore. Only time will tell! :)

gabe doesn't react with the tylenol either. only the motrin will make his high fevers go away. glad little camp seems to be feeling a little better.
