crazy tough week
 
this little man tested my patience last week
 
 
He started with a fever on Tuesday which continued all the way until Friday
IT pretty much never broke from 103-104
I kept alternating Tylenol and Ibuprofen but the darn thing wasn't moving
oh to say he was crabby was an understatement
he was getting up every hour all night every night 
I took him into the Dr. on Thursday because he seemed to be doing worse 
they gave him some medicine to use for the weekend in case he gets an ear infection
he had some congestion and fluid in his lungs
and just wasn't in the mood to eat much all week
then I noticed the fever was gone fast by Friday
but his body was covered in a rash  
all over like big red welts everywhere
his face and along his neck  looked swollen 
so we waited it out until yesterday
he was getting up the last 3 night now about every 10 minutes and just CRABBY!
still not eating much and just irritable even with Tylenol
so after church I took him to the walk in clinic 
he has a horse voice too which the kiddos thought was so cute along with his polka dot body
by this time I was about to take a nap at the Dr.s office I was so tired and crabby with the other kiddos and Dave of course
I have never been so tired before
the Dr. diagnosed him with Roseola
I have always heard of it but never knew what it was
he fit the definition to a T
so we just have to let it run it's course he said
so praying for a healthy man and some sleep...
