The poor mad man has been sick with a fever since Thursday. I took him to the doc on Friday, hoping he had an ear infection so that he'd get his antibiotics and be all better. But, no. The doctor was all, "Huh. I dunno... probably a virus. But he's breathing a little fast, so keep an eye out for [insert list of vague but scary symptoms]. OK, have a great weekend!" Riiiiiiight.
So since then we've been totally freaking out, obsessively watching his breathing and taking his temperature (in between doses of ibuprofen). For Edwin's part, he's mostly been happy and playing, except when his fever goes up, when he whimpers and pants and generally scares the shit out of everyone.
I call shenanigans on this fever, and I call shenanigans on whatever foreign intruder is invading my precious boy's little baby body. Cease and desist!
Any comments about how babies get fevers for several days and wind up just fine are welcome and even encouraged. Kthx.
