Update on the Kiddos

Well, Th's fever hit 102.5 yesterday afternoon. He did so well all morning, and when we went to pick up the other 2 from preschool, he was excited at the prospect of eating out for lunch. But, when we got to the restaurant, he had lost his appetite and just wanted to get home. He didn't eat 1 bite for lunch and napped for 3 hours. The good news- he hasn't had a fever since, and he only woke up twice last night coughing.

Ta and T.G. have their well-visits today so I am going to talk to my doc about Th. I am trying my best to keep him "resting" on the couch, but when he has good moments, it's very difficult. That's what happened yesterday. He felt fine in the morning and then crashed in the afternoon. Who knows what's going on with him! I called a friend of mine who used to be a pediatric nurse to solicit her opinion about his fever. She seems to think he has a strain of the flu virus, and I agree with her. There is no way his allergies alone are causing him to run a fever for this long and this high (granted, I know the fevers haven't been terribly high, but usually with allergies they are very low-grade).

Hopefully he's on the road to recovery and can get to school tomorrow, especially since there is no school Friday for Good Friday. His teacher called to check on him last night, which was so sweet and made him feel good. Just another reason I am sad to see him "graduate" and move on to kindergarten. . . he's been at this preschool for 4 years now, and we all love it!
