Not Quite Breakfast in Bed…

This morning definitely had a different kind of start to it, compared to yesterday’s super sweet breakfast in bed. This morning, my six-year-old woke up, moaning with the fever again. It was up to 103.8 last night. While taking his temperature this morning, it was still counting at 103.5, when he started coughing. Then, he threw up. Poor guy.

I scheduled a doctor’s visit first thing. Much like taking your car to the mechanic, and it stops making the noise, I took him in and he said he felt, “three acres better!” Which, is great, of course, that he’s feeling better. The only problem is, now he doesn’t. The fever is back. So is the moaning. Except now, he won’t take the ibuprofen.

The doctor said to give it a few more days on the antibiotic, to make sure his ear infection clears up. He’s also gained another miserable symptom: mouth blisters. As if he didn’t want to eat already, he certainly doesn’t want to now. Heads up parents, the doctor said the mouth blisters are going around. No fun.

Hope your kids are staying healthy!

Oh- and please look again- that’s a thermometer, NOT a pregnancy test. A few friends were wondering…

      Erin, he wasn’t eating for a while. Yesterday, he asked for fruit snacks. You know, those gummy things. Not nutritious, but at least he’s eating!

    Ive had the mouth blisters as a PARENT!! mine was due to a medicine issue.. Im now having to state Im allergic to Tramadol (darn it I need it for my back spasms).. the cool thing is they gave me this NASTY concotion : Maalox(R), Benedryl, Lidocaine of that stuff.. IT REALLY HELPED! I was able to open my mouth. I didnt feel like ripping everything up..

    However since he is on antibotics have you thought of giving him a probiotic or an antifungal like difulcan? so it can protect the good bacteria in his body.

      Ashley, no I hadn’t even thought of that this go round. We’ve done that in the past though. Seems to help! That must have sucked having mouth blisters as a grown up!
