We'll here we go again. I cannot seem to get Carson on the right track! Wednesday morning when Carson woke up he felt a little warm to me. I gave him some Motrin and didn't think about it again. Well Wednesday night around 7:00, he spiked a temp of 102.1. So I knew something was brewing. Needless to say, no sleep. I called the Doctor and made an appointment yesterday. He has a double ear infection. ARGGGGGG. So last night around 7:30 he decided to have an asthma attack. Now he has had temperatures running all the way as high as 105.1. It is currently 103.8 and he is asleep. I just feel so bad for him. We were up for 4 hours last night trying to get his fever down and when I was in the bathroom with him putting wash clothes on him, he was sitting up and trying to sleep. He is absolutely miserable. I finally laid him in my bed around 2:30. He woke up again around 4:00 holding his ear and crying "mommy hurt". I think I was crying with him. I took him into the living room and rocked him back to sleep. His temp was still holding 102.6. We were up again at 7:00 with 104.2 temp. I took all of his clothes off and wiped him down with a washcloth. He was not very happy and kept crying for his blank (blanket). So I got it down to about 103.4 and let him go to sleep. He hasn't had a wet diaper since yesterday around 7:30(last night) and he will not take anything by mouth. I think it hurts to bad to swallow. So when I'm trying to give him Motrin and Tylenol, he spits most of it back at me. It is a battle. He can't have Popsicles so I'm out of ideas to get fluids in him. Any ideas, let me know.......
Coltan and Cody were great last night. I think they stayed up until 1:00 or so helping me take his temperature. They were as concerned with Carson as I was. Thanks to my big boys, they kept getting me more cold wash clothes, blankets, pillows, juice, and Coltan gave him lots of cuddles and kisses. I cannot believe how when I'm in a crisis, Coltan steps up and acts like he is the man of the house. Cody hates to see Carson sick and he gets just as upset as Carson. I know that Carson has the two best big brothers in the world. Mom is really proud of you two!!!
