Illness comes and goes

So he had one fever over Thanksgiving that was due to an ear infection along with the runny/congested nose. But overall, he has been healthy since his stint in the NICU. This may be due to good luck or the fact that his nap falls right in the middle of church so he rarely sees the nursery. Well, the good luck broke this week as he was with a babysitter (her first time with Brown) and of course he spiked a fever of 103 and was miserable and screaming. This lasted for about 18 hours or so. You parents know how fun an inconsolable, feverish, screaming child is who refuses any tylenol. After about 4 minutes, you are ready to scream yourself. Chris took the brunt of the night but we were both up at about 430 AM, Chris and I were both sitting in the floor with him and he suddenly started playing and laughing. What? You are kiddin me. Yes, his head felt cool, he was playing and acting like the previous day had never happened. It took him a few days to get back to normal but he was playful and smiling and seemed to have no memory of the event. So for all of you with the winter coughs and sniffles out there, spring is on the way. (apologies to those with spring allergies... - see you in the office)
