I just held my crying feverish baby (see my other posts below for the details...basically he has roseola) for 45 minutes on my lunch hour. My heart is absolutely broken. Finally his fever went down and he was more comfortable but at that point over tired and I had to leave to go back to work. So I handed him back off to my Mom, he fussed a little louder but as she rocked him he got quieter and quieter and soon fell asleep. I then had to leave for work...I'm praying he stays asleep for a few hours and rests up.
Just got an update from my sister, she says he is sleeping soundly, his temperature has continued to fall. I'm hoping he wakes up hungry after all of that and will at least give a smile or two.
MH is going over there at 2pm to help her with the next dosage of medication since I'm unable to leave from work....let's hope it goes better then the 11am one. The little bugger has gotten smart and won't take it in a short bottle with formula, from a bottle nipple or in his baby food. He HATES the Tylenol/Motrin.
Edit: let me say I know there are worse things out there....DS just basically has a fever that needs to be regulated with medication that will last anywhere from 2 to 5 days. I know other babies have far worse situations. I just had to vent...plus I always think it's good to share things like this because someone on this board is bound to have the same thing happen to their LO (I hope not, but statistics prove otherwise).
