A Trip to the Emergency Room

I thought our weekend was going along pretty good until yesterday. Friday morning we took Cameron to the zoo and waterpark and he had a great time. We left there and the poor little guy looked worn out. He fell asleep on our way home, but I didn't think anything of it because I just thought he was worn out from a busy day. Well, we got home and probably a couple hours later I noticed that his eyes were real glassy looking and he was getting some dark circles under his eyes. Well, after I noticed his glassy eyes, I felt his forehead only to feel a very warm head and cheeks. I checked his temperature and he indeed had a fever. I gave him Motrin and he ended up sleeping with us Friday evening. He tossed and turned all night and was so restless. Saturday was another crazy day. The morning when he woke up he was fine. No fever and appeared to be acting like his normal jovial self. Well, we decided to go out for a little trip in the am and around 12:30 he spiked another fever. I gave him Motrin and then around 6:30 he spike another fever. I contacted our doctors office and we ended up taking him to the Emergency Room. They asked us numerous questions.......does he have diarrhea? Sore throat? Runny Nose? Cough? Well, no he didn't have any of that and he was still using the restroom too so after a strep test, checking his lungs and ears, they sent us home telling us that it was probably a viral infection. I thought to myself that with a fever of 104.7 that he must have had something more wrong with him and I was literally freaking out. We were told to allow for plenty of rest, give him plenty of liquids and to alternate Mortin and Tylenol so that is where we stand this morning. No temperature as of yet, but seeing as though that fever rears it's ugly head in the afternoon.........well, I am just hoping it stays away. Oh, Cameron just gets so hot, worn out and I feel so bad for my little man. I hate that I am not able to do anything more for him then to snuggle and love on him. Hopefully he starts feeling better soon.
This has been him so far this morning. He has been just laying around and not doing much of anything. No appetite, but I was able to get him to eat some applesauce. This kid LOVES applesauce!! So, we are just hoping that fever stays away and he gets some rest today.
I almost wish that they were able to give him some antibiotic to help him. They said that this could last up to 4-5 days. Poor little guy. It is so hard at this age because he can't really tell you what hurts. Well, I am off to get Cameron some more juice and see if he will eat a little more.
Dr. Mommy is coming!!

antibiotics don't help everything. When Dr's prescibe them for no reason (mostly because mom's want them and the dr is trying to placate them) it creates super bacteria that is hard to get rid of, like MRSA. If the dr didn't give him an antibiotic, it is for a reason.

I bet in a few days he gets Rosela. Lukas got a temp so high and he NEVER gets fevers and sure enough he got Rosela. So in a few days see if he gets a rash. Lukas was miserable. He would sleep almost all day. I felt horrible and I couldn't figure it out till the rash appeared.

awww Lisa, I am sorry Cameron is not feeling well. You can tell in his little eyes that he is under the weather. Poor boy. Poor parents too. It is draining when the little ones don't feel well.
Thinking of you all and keeping all of you in our prayers.
