Health Update

When Braeden woke up from his morning nap, he felt warm so we took his temperature. 101.4 degrees. Gave him his eye drops and infant tylenol, then watched him closely all afternoon. He was doing fine. Acting like himself--busy, tearing around the house, up the stairs, pulling all the lids and strainers out of the cabinet--normal stuff. But around 4:30 he hit a wall and started acting tired and fussy. We put him down for a 45-minute nap and then when he woke up, we fed him dinner. When we picked him up from his high chair, he was really warm and shaking a little.

We took his temp again and it was 102.7; into the bath he went. Then more eye drops and infant tylenol and it was time to nurse and go to bed. I'll stay home with him tomorrow to make sure he's over the infection and fever.

Think good thoughts for Braeden!
