"He gets the award for being the hottest baby here tonight" is what the RN said when coming into our room at the ER at CHOW last night. 105.4 was Mitchell's temp. I noticed he had a fever after Cameron's b-day party Sat. (103.6), gave him Tylenol and put him to bed. He was pretty cranky and had slight fevers all day Sun. But when he woke up Sun. night, he was burning up. I finished nursing him and took him to the ER with tears in my eyes and praying that it wasn't anything too serious.
I'm exhausted from holding/rocking him for the 2 1/2 hours we were at the ER. He weighs 19 lbs.!
It turns out it's a virus, thank God. It can hopefully be controlled with Motrin and Tylenol. My poor baby.
