Sick Boy

Caleb has been sick for several days. Friday he was running a 103 temp and I took him to the doctor; they found a sore throat that was probably causing the fever. We went out of town this weekend for my sister's shower and today he was running a 103 temp again and coughing like crazy. He pretty much just looks miserable--coughing constantly, runny nose, high fever, walking around the house crying/fussing, unable to be comforted. He didn't sleep well last night because he was coughing so much, so I hope tonight is a better one. We could all use the rest, especially him.

I talked to his doctor this afternoon and he wants to see him tomorrow so they can rule out pneumonia and/or asthma-related problems. We're praying his little body will be all well soon.

Update: We went to the doctor this morning. Caleb has an ear infection in his right ear and his tonsils have white stripes on them. He's still running a pretty constant fever of 101. It's also unclear if his cough is from drainage or some airway constriction problems, so we're going to try and figure that out. He's pretty miserable and sleeping most of the time, which is good because he needs it. He's lost almost a pound since Friday since his throat hurts too bad to eat more than a banana now and then. He'll gain it back once he feels better. Thanks for your prayers; he needs them. I'm going to go rest now since Caleb is sleeping. I'll continue to let you guys know how he's doing.

I am so sorry. I know I dislike it GREATLY when I have a sick child. You feel helpless as a Mother.

I hope this passes quickly and both of you can get some much needed rest.

I hope Caleb feels better soon. He looked so pitiful yesterday. By the way, I finally updated my blog. It's pretty bad when even Kurt was getting onto me about it last night. :)

Poor, poor guy! I am SO sorry that he's feeling like this and I'm sorry for you too, Mama. It isn't easy on us to see our babies in so much pain. Prayers for all of you!!

Poor baby. It sounds like he's very sick. Thank goodness for antibiotics. I hope he gets over this soon. This is no time for a little one to be sick.

Aww...poor thing. I know just how you feel! Trey just got over some kind of bug that had me scared half to death. I'll be praying for you all.

There is nothing worse!!! I am glad you found out what was wrong and hopefully he'll be better in another week. Seems like everyone has a child with SOMETHING right now!!! Mine have colds/coughs.

Thanks for the update. At least with the ear infection the medicine should kick in,in a day or so. Did they say if he had strep? Usually that is white bumps. Oh I pray he feels better and medicine helps. Blessings.

Thank you for the update, Jenn. It's good to know what the problem is and how to pray for him! Hugs!
