The plan for today was to hang out in the morning and then go to the pool this afternoon, but well plans changed when we got up. Jack had crawled in bed with me after Chad had left for PT this morning and he felt warm, but well it's hot here so I didn't think much of it, plus I was pretty out of it. We get up and he cuddles up against me and he's burning up! I take his temp and it was 102.4. I am not a mom that rushes to the hospital, especially for a fever knowing that it's our bodies way of fighting off what ever nastiness is happening in there so he's been laying down, cuddling with me, and watching movies off and on throughout the morning.
Jacob got to go swimming though. It's not his fault Jack's sick so the friend we were going to go with took Jacob with her and he'll be home in about 2 hrs. Jack's finally napping on the couch. I took his temp again around 1:00 and it was up a little more to 102.8. He said his tummy feels kind of funny, but not bad! So not sure exactly what that means for him...but I'm keeping an eye on him and hoping that the fever breaks soon.
I'm NOT giving him anything as of right now other than water. I don't believe in masking fevers with tylenol and motrin. He's not in pain and he has still founds giggles throughout the morning and plenty of smiles so although he's uncomfortable he's not completely miserable. If it goes higher into the 103 I'll be dosing him up. When he gets up I'm planning on giving him a luke warm bath to see if that helps, but that's it. I believe our bodies are more capable of getting rid of junk than we often give them credit for!
The boys are so rarely sick and I'm just so truly thankful for that. I have to say having him so "content" to stay on the couch isn't a completely bad thing. He's normally all over the place running here and there pulling out toys galore. I wish he wasn't sick, but he is and I've enjoyed some nice cuddle time with my little guy. He did inform us when Chad was home after his physical therapy that he wants Mac-N-Cheese for dinner. Chad's going to grill some brats and I'll make the mac-n-cheese (homemade). Oh and Jack said he wanted bread too! ;) I'd say if that's as "demanding" as he gets when he's not feeling good, we're doing pretty good! I will say I'm glad that if he's getting something it happens now vs in 2 1/2 weeks when it's time for the baby to be born. Get it done and over with now so when she's born and ready to come home we're all healthy!
I'm thinking of going and taking a nap with my little guy!
Have I mentioned how comfy our new furniture is??? Oh I need to take pictures of it now that we have the living room all set up too! Might do that tonight!
