A Feverish Day...

We had our first Will sickness yesterday! What I thought was a reaction from his shots turned out to be a stomach bug. He had me up all night on Wednesday into Thursday. Then I took him temp. in the a.m. and he was almost 103! So I called the doctor and they said they could get us in later in the day. Yikes...freaked me out being a first time momma. Will would just sit on my lap, no playing, no jumping, and he was just plain tired. My poor baby. The Tylenol seemed to work but not for long.
When we went to the doctors they said they thought he had a little stomach bug. Yikes! So they recommended pedialyte, diluted apple juice, and pop cycles. So we chalked it up to a tummy ache.
Will and I went to the grocery store to get our suggested items and came home. For the rest of the day we just hung out around the house, Will had a cool bath and some fluids. When bedtime came around he did not want to go to sleep. So by 9:00, being as exhausted as I was I relented and we let our little bubba sleep with us. What do you know he fell right to sleep. He woke only one time, burning up, gave him some Tylenol and a little bottle and he was out. Then he did not wake until almost 9am. That is unheard of in our house! Today he is feeling better, only a slight fever and playful. Thank goodness my sweet Will in on the mend.

Oh, poor Will! I hope he feels better soon. After Bella gets her shots she always comes down with something. Virus, ear infection, bronchitis. Our poor babes :(
Sending some get well vibes and I'm glad he's feeling a little better, sweetie.

Poor baby! At least you got to see your pediatrician! I had a sick on too this week, I feel for you, it's NOT fun.

You found the magic of co-sleeping! It's great when the kiddos are sick. Everyone gets a lot more rest. Hope Will feels better soon.

Oh no, hope Will is doing better! Since Peanut's a daycare kid, he spent the better part of his first year being sick with something. Hope he bounces back quickly so you can all get some good rest!
