Hmmm, that doesn't sound like the smiling, dancing, very vocal little boy I left this morning! NOPE! Walking into Landon's bedroom, there he was, having his diaper changed and just laying there.....STILL and LETHARGIC! Definitely not himself. This is the same little boy that when I change his diaper, I feel like I am a WWE wrestler and I am holding him down for the count to win the championship belt! It really is quite the sight!! LOL
Not today! Today he was feeling extremely HOT! He wasn't feeling much like eating or drinking. All signs that were pointing in the direction of his pediatrician's office. So, off we went. Imagine my surprise that in just 3 1/2 short hours, my poor baby boy, managed to run a fever of 102.8!!! WOW, where did that come from? Well, I'm not exactly sure, but I do know that it was accompanied by fluid in the ears, a major rash, total congestion and YES.....VOMIT!!!
After having some labs run, it was concluded that Landon has a viral infection. Doctor prescribed an antibiotic and HOME we went. Poor little guy couldn't keep any food down and was in such discomfort. Can't a "little man" catch a break??
Landon is supposed to go to Children's Hospital Boston, tomorrow morning, to see Dr. Lee (his ENT). I'm not exactly sure how we are expected to travel 45 minutes with a sick little boy who is vomiting & is still rear-facing! All therapy sessions have been CANCELLED for the rest of the week. And I am thinking his ENT appointment may have to be rescheduled too!! I have reservations about rescheduling because I do not know how long it will take us to get another appointment. We do know, that after the ear infection winter from hell, Landon is well on his way to having tubes put in!
But seeing my poor little guy like this.......
just makes me so sad...........
and makes me want to cuddle with him ALL DAY LONG!!!
And so, I think I will do just that.....TOMORROW!!!
