Back to the doctor with C today. We've been to the doctor more in the last month than we have in the last 3 years. He's still running a fever, even though I've been dosing him around the clock with Motrin. Last night, he went to bed around 9, woke up hysterical at 5AM, and then slept until 2:30 when I woke him to take him back to the doctor again.
The diagnosis? A virus. Probably 2 or 3 that he has picked up consecutively. Or maybe just one really nasty one. That is lingering for more than 2 weeks with little improvement. Or maybe he has atypical pneumonia. Or maybe it was influenza. But at least his lungs are clear again!
Brought him home, and he went right back to sleep. It's 9:30PM now and he has just woken and requested french fries. B went out to get them and he's watching a Kipper dvd - complaining about the lamp light hurting his eyes and the noise of the vaporizer.
I am REALLY READY for the health vibes to come back to this house!!!!!
