Well, hello! Happy Monday all!
This weekend was busy , fun, chaotic and tough all rolled into one. Saturday morning I got together with a friend to do some shopping for a bridal shower we are hosting this coming Saturday. I can not wait!
My hubby had an all day bachelor party to attend for my brother so he was gone all day. My mom and I decided to have a mother daughter "date" and went out for some yummy tacos and margaritas, frozen yogurt (this is a big deal beings that we finally have a self serve frozen yogurt place within a 30 mile radius!), and then we rented Wanderlust!
When I headed to pick up Jaxson and Kendra I took one look at Jaxson and could tell he didn't feel right. I thought he might be overtired and had a little too much sun but after checking his temp it was 103.5. Now, I know that kids can handle temps higher than we can much better but I was still concerned. After we got home and got Kendra settled into bed I gave Jax some medicine. I waited about an hour to recheck his temp and it had gone up to 104.4! I was pretty concerned at this point so I called our on call Dr. who told me I should alternate tylenol and ibuprofen (which I knew) but the only thing was we had no iburpofen and it was 11 and there were no pharmacies or stores open 24hrs with a half an hour of home. :(
Since Brandon wasn't home and I wasn't about to load both sleeping kids into the car luckily I had my mom to call upon. Such a lifesaver! I got a full dose of the ibuprofen in him and within a few hours the fever broke and started to go down. He woke up the next morning seeming fine.
Kendra however had gotten sick in the middle of the night and I knew nothing of it. It had to be sometime in the four hours of sleep I actually got. She never cried so I never knew. :( Talk about feeling guilty.
I had planned on making a trip down to see a friend in Seattle and was conflicted about going. This would be the second time I would have to cancel and I knew it would be September before I could make it again. The kids were acting and eating normally and didn't have elevated temps so I decided to go.
I didn't have a lot of time to spend down there but we made the best of it. I got to see her new condo, her new place of employment and then we went to Pike's Place to do some eating and shopping. It was such a gorgeous day!
By the time I had to head back Brandon called to tell me that once again the kids had elevated temps. :(
Not sure what is going on exactly with them. They will go almost all day seeming and feeling fine and then have fevers again.
Hoping that by tomorrow they are back to normal so we can really enjoy the summer that we are FINALLY having.
