Jeffrey Michael woke up yesterday complaining of a bad headache. He had a slight fever but after some ibuprofen, he was running around as usual. I just figured it was a random thing.
Sad to say it's not. Yesterday afternoon he called from his friend's house to say his headache was back. Jeff A picked him up and he was still warm. More ibuprofen and a bubble bath later, he crawled into bed with me. He was fast asleep by 8 pm. My husband and his brother went to Beer Fest and I knew they wouldn't be home till the wee hours of the morning. More on that story later!
Poor Jeffrey M was up every couple hours just so uncomfortable. This morning he woke with a fever of 102.6. I don't think I've ever seen either of my kids with a fever that high. I gave him some ibuprofen and will do the acetaminophen/ibuprofen route if needed. He is afraid that he is going to have a stomach sickness like Paige had last weekend, but I assured him his sickness was not the same. Right now he is in his bedroom playing his DS game so I'm thinking the medicine is working. I don't want to panic and take him to the ER but I also don't want to be too lacks about his fever.
He just came in to find a stylus for his DS and his little cheeks are so red. He sure isn't acting like he has a high fever. Fingers crossed he'll be ok by end of today!!
