When she came over, her husband stayed at my brother's house with there little guy. Two of her other kids that she brought with had some colds. As the night progressed, her daughter (who has diabetes) had high numbers, so my sister gave her insulin. Then, a little later, she got the chills, and then got a fever. So, we were visiting with our sick kiddos.
After she left, Caleb's fever never went down (even with Tylenol) and his breathing got worse. I noticed his heart racing more, and his breathing was faster. I really suspect that he has RSV or Pneumonia (again). We didn't bring him in to the ER because we just knew it would be a long process, and we really aren't sure that we know what is going on with him. He did have a few spouts of throwing up, mostly phlegm, last night.
This morning, he is in a little better spirits, but he complains of a headache. He is running a low grade temp. and has a cough. He also has the green crud out the nose. I noticed Maddie's clear mucus from the nose has turned to the green side. I wish when one kid gets a contagious sickness (and needs meds) that you can give a prescription to all the kids. Then, parents can fill the prescription when/if needed.
We are going to watch how he does today, and decide about bringing him in later this afternoon. I know kids get more sick throughout the day, but it is the breathing that concerns me. Plus, you know your little tot is very sick when they lay on the couch during the day. Normally he is running 100 miles per minute everywhere. I pray that God will just touch and heal my little boy.
Yesterday in the van, Nathaniel asked me what sperm is! I said, where did you hear/see that? He said his friend says it a lot, and asked me again what it is. I was hoping to get out of the question, but he was persistent. I had no idea what to reply to that, so I just said that it is something in a man's body that helps with making babies. I am not sure if that was the thing to say to him when he is only 9, but I know that I want him to hear about all that from me. At least he was satisfied with that answer (for now), and THANKFULLY he didn't ask more. I am not sure I am ready for that whole thing quite yet.
