Yesterday Miles had a runny nose all day. Then around 5:00 he developed a fever. Poor guy. I waited until bed time to give him Tylenol. He coughed a couple of times in bed and woke around midnight. He was very upset and we brought him into bed (we usually try to wait until 5am to do this). He developed a fever about every 3 or 3.5 hours and we kept him up on Tylenol. We had scheduled haircuts for this morning. We called the lady who cuts our hair and updated us on the situation. She said to come in. We also called a peditrician (we don't have one currently as she closed her office) who was highly recommended by friends and got an appointment for this morning. After making both appointments and getting a little work done too, I was pooped! We put Miles down for nap time, but after a short while he woke due to fever. I went in and cuddled with him and read to him until we both fell asleep. I think we were out for about two hours. This afternoon we just vegged out and watched TV and played trains.
He was put to bed about two hours ago now and is up crying. Hope tonight goes reasonably well. His party is planned for tomorrow. Everyone knows that he's sick but I think everyone had decided to come anyway. It's only family and no children. I really hope this doesn't last.
