Timothy woke up with a 38.1 fever. Went up to 38.5 and then peaked at 38.8. No other symptoms, which I know now means I should just monitor his condition. No need to go see a doctor unless the fever is over 39.3 degrees – or unless there are some other bad symptoms. Timothy was fine other than the fever.
We spent the whole day on the couch watching TV. Timothy was pretty miserable. Couldn’t nap, couldn’t play, couldn’t do anything. Poor baby.
Then his fever went down to 38.1 – which is when I decided it was safe to give him advil.
Now – with advil’s help – he’s laughing, crawling, pulling up – and just being his happy self. Hopefully he will get a good night’s sleep, too – with advil’s help, just in case.
