Yesterday when I took JD to the doctor I noticed that the rash had spread all the way down to his little feet. The nurse asked me if he had a fever and I said no. Then she checked it and it was 100.3. SOOO Ya, he did have a fever. They checked him for strep and it was negative but he does have ANOTHER ear infection. The doctor said his poor throat looks very sore and he’s surprised that JD has eaten anything recently.
By the time I got Dieter home his fever had climbed to 101.7 so I gave him some Tylenol and put him down. He was up again all night and is finally acting really sick. Today it’s been a pain to get him to drink ANYTHING and his little fever is up to 102.2 degrees. This morning at 4am and 6am Jeremy took over and let me catch some sleep. He got him to drink a bottle and also gave him a cool bath. (Thanks SO much Jer) Hopefully it doesn’t last much longer because this mommy is wearing down quickly. Having finals this past week and next week doesn’t help the situation.
Other than JD being sick I had to meet with a Pulmonary specialist today. Mom mentioned to the Cardiologist that I have always had a hard time breathing, especially when I exert myself at all. He sent me in for a PFT (Pulmonary Function Test) a couple weeks ago. It went well and I figured it was no big deal. WELL apparently my test was abnormal so that is why I had to go in again today. It all boils down to this. I have Exercise Induced Asthma and have probably had it since childhood. I now have an inhaler so it should help out. On top of that lovely bit of information I am also being tested for Sleep Apnea. This is most likely because I am overweight. We’ll see how the test goes.
Needless to say it’s been a long day today and I’m ready for a nap… HOWEVER I have anatomy tonight and a fussy baby that is waking up from a nap. 🙂 Don’t be to jealous you aren’t me today.
