My one year old woke the night before her birthday with a fever and congestion. We moved to the recliner so she could sleep more comfortably, but she tossed and turned all night. She was hot and miserable for her birthday, so we put all celebrations on hold. Tuesday night she had another bad night (on the recliner with me) and when it was 10AM on Wednesday and alternating Tylenol & Motrin wasn't even touching her fever I took her into the pediatrician.
Both her ears are infected, so we started a round of antibiotics. Her fever didn't break until this morning, and I've never seen her look so pitiful. She's finally sleeping peacefully and I hope she sleeps a nice, long time!
Both boys were also under the weather -- N went to bed at 4PM last night and didn't wake until 7 this morning. C went to bed around 5, woke for a few hours at 9, and then slept until 9. I hope all that sleep will kick whatever virus out of them, as they have felt pretty lousy. I just forced them outside to play in the sunshine.
I also have something going on, which I've been trying to cope with at home, but may need to make a visit to the doctor for.
Oh, she's awake already. So much for a long sleep.
