And Here We Go Again....

Yep, ONE day I'm well and now, my Hunter Man is sick. Just the last day or two, he's had a cough and his nose has been running clear stuff. We've been giving him couph and cold medicine but tonite, at dinner, he spiked a fever within minutes. Hunter doesn't complain. He doesn't cry when he feels bad. He never has. He just gets real tired when he gets a fever and he may cry then. He layed his little head on his seat at dinner (which he didn't take the first bite of) and I just knew something was up.

We took him to the Patient First near us, where they did a strep test, a Flu swab and they took his temps/vital signs. He had a 101.4 fever, tested positive for Strep AND the Flu, as well as a slight ear infection in his right ear. I couldn't believe it. We even asked him what hurt and he said that his ears were ok. It was the same Doctor that's usually there and so, he remembered him. He said he was a VERY sick little boy and he needed to rest all weekend. The only time he fussed is when he had to take his Ibroprofin. He usually takes his meds pretty good but I think he was ready for bed. He was so tired. We talked him into it and then, he got a sticker and a piece of Chocolate. He got an anitibiotic and another medicine to lessen the effects of the Flu.

One prescription they had there and the other one, Mike picked up at the store after we put Hunter to bed. He took it after he got home with it and then, went on back to sleep. It looks like I'm going to set my alarm for the middle of the night and check his fever periodically. Right now, he's been asleep for about an hour and his fever has dropped quite a bit. The poor guy is sweating like crazy.

We're going for our Ultrasound Saturday morning but Grandad said he'd sit with him while we're gone. He doesn't mind missing it (Hunter) and we told him we'd have pictures for him to see later. I'm looking forward to coming home and just holding my little boy. He was SO hot and weak tonite. I know fevers are your body's defense system at work but they sure scare me. He's may be sick but not the first complaint out of him. What a trooper!

If you get a chance, please say a prayer for my little guy. He's really precious. (hard to believe the picture below, in my previus post was just last night) Ok, I guess I'll have pictures to post later of our other new little baby. (Maybe it'll give me my, much needed MOJO so I can get some scrappin' done while Hunter sleeps) Guess I better head to bed now!!


God bless everyone, and hope you have a good Saturday!!

Awww, I hope Hunter feels better very soon! It's awful when the kiddos are sick. One day this week my son's class only had 9 kids in it - and the class size is 23!
