On Wednesday, my son took a nap – he NEVER takes a nap. I kind of figured something was wrong and I was right. He started running a fever on Wednesday night and on Thursday morning, he woke up with a 102.3 degree temperature. I called the doctor and the nurse told me it sounded like a bug and to just keep giving him cold medicine and Motrin. She said if he was still spiking a fever by today that I was to call back and bring him in.
He woke up about 2:30 a.m. and his fever was up over 101 degrees. So off to the doctor we went today and it is strep throat. It is going around his daycare. He’s on antibiotics and is resting a good bit and seems to be doing okay. I’m worried about getting it now. I always get everything that’s going around and with the lack of sleep I’ve been experiencing, especially since he’s been sick, I’m worried. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and take extra Vitamin C!
