Sick Little Boy

My little boy has been sick this evening with a fever. I have no idea where it came from because everyone around here has been healthy. He hasn't been around anyone that has been sick so I found it strange when I noticed that he felt real warm this evening. He wasn't acting sick or feeling warm at all today and then this evening it must have hit him. I was checking e-mail and he came over and laid his head on my lap and asked me to hold him. I shut down my e-mail and held him and noticed him being real hot to the touch. I checked his temperature and indeed he had a fever of 101.4 and he wasn't into moving or acting like his good ole chipper self. That smile was no longer on his face which concerned me. I gave him some Tylenol until Shawn got home from work with some Motrin and will give that too him soon before bed. I had to fight him to get the Tylenol in, but finally I was successful. Here is is laying down shortly after he had his medicine and shortly before he totally zonked out. Luckily his fever broke and he is now watching Blue's Clues so hopefully his temperature stays down. I just hope we aren't in for a rough night. Anyway, here is a picture of my not so happy little boy. Oh - I just hate it when he feels yucky. It worries me so and I just miss that beautiful smile that I was talking about earlier today. So, here is to hopefully a restful and peaceful night and a little boy that feels better in the morning.

Oh it's never fun when the little ones are sick.

My trick with the medicine is to make it sound like something the kiddo would want. We call our medicine "grape soda" .. or whatever flavor applies. Emily was resistant at first until I just told her I'd give it to her Dad to drink. Then she was SURE she wanted some. Medicine has been smooth sailing since then.
