The Case of the Phantom Fevers

I'm not sure where these fevers are coming from or why they keep hitting my boys randomly but they need to go away already. Ian went to his Abuela's (MIL) house with dh Sunday afternoon and apparently started running a fever somewhere along the way. He was whiny and miserable when he got home. I took his temp and it was 101.5. Great. Dh gave him some Motrin and he laid on the couch for a while. I could tell the minute that medicine kicked in though. He practically jumped off the couch and started playing.

Sometime in the middle of the night he crawled into bed with us though running a fever once again. I noticed he was hot laying next to me. He complained he was thirsty so dh got up with him to get him some oj and some more meds. Poor baby didn't want to even wake up this morning and I don't blame him. I didn't want to get up either. Having a sick, hot child all curled up next to me in bed with his head in my back and feet all over dh made me wish I could turn off the alarm and roll back over. He finally made it out of bed though and ate breakfast. Good sign.

But he missed yet another day of school today since he's supposed to be fever free for 24 hours. I think this is day 3 or 4 this month he's been out.


I can't keep track anymore.

He was fine all day today. You wouldn't even know he had been sick. No other symptoms. I just don't get it. I'm glad his immune system is fighting this off though and Logan's too. Bella seems to be staying away from it too thankfully. I guess all that liquid gold I produced for them has done a pretty good job so far. :) I Lysol'ed the house today, or most of it, hoping that it will keep the germies at bay for a while. Crossing my fingers!
