Go away little bug

Well we've all been fighting some sort of illness the last couple of weeks. Here's the rundown
Marvin was sick
Then Calvin caught a cold
Calvin got a little better
Then Marvin got a little better
Marvin got worse
Marvin got better
Then Calvin got worse.
I've been fighting a cold, but thankfully it hasn't been anything like what they've had.

Yesterday Calvin's fever escalated and I was kicking myself for not taking him to the doctor. He was acting fine in the morning then it really hit him hard in the afternoon. We enjoyed lots of snuggle time and he even fell asleep in my arms multiple times yesterday, which hasn't happened since he was a baby. By evening his fever reached 104.2! He was burning up. I stripped him down to his diaper and paced until Marvin got back with more medicine.

Thankfully we saw our doctor today and he was given some medicine for a sinus infection. Poor boy! I just hate seeing him so helpless, I'm ready to see this little boy again (maybe without the mess though).

Oh my. Fevers and babies don't mix very well, do they? Whenever mine have a fever the very first thing I do is give them a warm bath. Not too hot, not too cold. You'd be amazed how well this works to reduce their fever. We are just getting over colds here too. I'll keep you guys in my prayers!
