So I posted a few days ago about T's fever and going to the ER. We have sine had 2 follow up appt with the pediatrician and nothing has come back from the cultures, so they just keep telling me the virus just has to run it's course, as miserable as it is. At Wed's appt he was still
running a pretty high fever, 101-102, but I found out I wasn't giving
him the right dosage of Tylenol. So then Wed afternoon I started to notice that he would only take about 2 ounces of anything, he's getting both BM and formula, and that night was pretty miserable, we were both up pretty much all night, he would take about 1-2 oz of formula, fuss then finally pass out. So at Thursday's appt with the pedi I pretty much lost my marbles, from exhaustion. Last night I will say was slightly better, but not by much. Still would only eat maybe 1-2 oz, fuss then pass out. This morning I gave him a BM bottle, and I would say he ate almost all of it, which was 3 oz and then was fussy, finally fell asleep in the swing. I just gave him a formula bottle and since he's been miserable. But prior to the fevers and virus this wasn't an issue what so ever. His feedings were easy.
So I'm wondering if it's still the virus going through his system or if now it's an issue with formula or what, but it is happening with both BM and the formula. Needless to say, I'm exhausted and a bit of an emotional wreck, because I feel like I can't do anything to ease his pain. Oh and MJD is home today from daycare because he's got something running through him, literally, he was sent home yesterday due to diarrhea. He's at least in good spirits, thank goodness.
I honestly don't know if any of my post is making sense, but if it is any advice would be wonderful. TIA!
