Much better ??? (UPDATED)

Fortunately, Adam's fever did not return today (Thank you, G-d). It may have reached around 99 at one point, but that was it. He was about 50% himself today. He took a huge nap (4 hours probably b/c he only slept about 8 hours last night, b/c of the ER), refused to eat anything except a few bites of bagel and 1 Pediasure, and was extremely irritable after his nap. Besides that, though, he was very happy and energetic. We had a ton of "quality time" together as a family, which is always nice. I am really hoping (obviously) that his appetite is back tomorrow and that he's 100%. Thanks for all the kind comments on the blog and on my Facebook page! It means a lot!

UPDATE: Within 5 minutes of writing this post, Adam woke up and started crying for me. He was crying like he was in pain (I'm thinking his stomach? or ears?). We've been taking turns holding him for the past hour (with him trying to sleep in between and waking up screaming after a few minutes). This is very unusual for him. Let's hope he falls asleep soon and sleeps peacefully through the night. Poor Little Love. :(


Sarah said... glad to hear LL is feeling better. Claire had that nasty fever-virus a few months ago. It was so scary to give her motrin and tylenol and still have the fever stay at 103. Kids are so resilient...if only we were after nights like that.

Okay, so I woke up this morning thinking that I had to ask you about Tylenol. :) What my subconscious wants to know is if you've switched over to children's Tylenol and Motrin yet. It took me a little while to realize that Danny had outgrown the infant doses of each and to switch him over to the children's version. Just checking to make sure that wasn't the reason why Adam's fever took a while to break.

Are you flattered that I'm dreaming about Adam's fever? :)
