Ben has been ill.
I will be taking him this evening to see his pediatrician as it's been two days with a fever.
A fever that has spiked to 103.8 as of 4:oopm today. Yesterday ranged from 102-103.4.
Over the Counter medication will bring it down for only awhile, but then, back up it goes again.
He spent last night heating up my pillow, tears and irritation...
Snuggled up to me for most of the night, tossing and turning.
Sweating and grumbling all night.
No, it's not teething, maybe an ear infection?
We shall see what his doctor says this evening at 7:30.
I wanted to avoid the doc office with the other bugs flying around, but this is just too high of a fever.
Two long with the Motrin, the fever should have stayed down.
He's got something that he's fighting within his system.
I will say this, he is still smiling and if you offer him an M&M cookie, he will eat it happily.
My poor baby.
In the meantime, I'll read you in a few days.
Welcome To Crustybeef~
UPDATE: Apparently Ben has a virus. I am truly frustrated right now over the IDIOT doctors.
WANTED: A doctor that I don't mind waiting for. That will spend time with my children, and not try to dismiss my parenting abilities. That will repeat the same things that their fellow Doctors in the program/office will state as well, and NOT conflicting information. ONE: don't take rectal temps. TWO: do take rectal temps it's must accurate, but add a degree under the armpit. THREE: rectal is baaaaaaaaaaadddddddd-that's not what Greek men say. See? I AM THAT Frustrated, and when I get frustrated my mouth grows a truck driver tone to it, and I get feisty.
But, I'm just a mom. Wanted: A good doctor that has well nurses, that isn't a boutique office, I don't believe in paying more for my health, simple, but thorough non judgy nurses and doctors.
That's another story.
I'm off to sip wine or guzzle a beer and maybe molest my husband.
Any mommies pregnant out there? Then you may join me with a preggartini. :)*scene in PARENTING WEEKLY magazine, tonight at doctors office.
Pardon me, my Bigdogg just passed me a beer.
Told you I'm annoyed. I want doctors to apply for OUR health diagnosis.
