My Baby is Sick. Prayers Needed.

Pin It now! I am so glad that it is finally Friday. Dawson has had a pretty high fever since Monday night/early Tuesday morning. I'll try to keep this short. I've taken him to see his pediatrician and we even had a trip to Instacare. His pediatrician and the doctor at Instacare both told me that I had to wait until Friday and if he still has a fever I'd have to take him to Primary Children's Hospital to have some tests run. Just give him Motrin and Tylenol in the meantime.

His fever has gotten up to 103.8 which seems really high to me, but the doctors told me I shouldn't be concerned unless it gets up to 105. Whatever. I am used to seeing my baby boy running around and playing and he has spent this whole week cuddling with me on the couch. He has had his moments where he'd get up and play a little but not very often.

So unless a miracle happens overnight (I am writing this Thursday night even though it won't post until Friday morning) we are going to be spending the day at the hospital having tests run on him. I'm happy that we'll finally know what is causing his fever and finally be able to treat it. But at the same time I am worried about finding out what is causing his fever... I have spent this whole week worrying about him. My poor baby. I want him to get better now.

Anyway, I am writing this because Dawson needs lots of positive thoughts and prayers to come his way. If you could please send some I'd appreciate it a lot. Thank you.

Oh no! Feel Better Dawson :( Fevers are one of the scariest things, I agree. I was always told that it doesn't matter what the temperature is, but how your child is acting....poor little guy. Hope it's nothing and is already gone....
