Max's Fever

Just a short post tonight. Max came down with something last night and developed a temperature of 103.4 F. It was very scary.

Luckily, Steve was the hero of the night and ran out to buy me some additional fever reducer when the Ibuprofen didn't phase the fever. In the past, I've tried staggering doses of acetaminophen and ibuprofen for a high fever and last night, it only reduced 2 degrees. See, scary kid sometimes. It was enough to stop his shivering. This was the first time in 17 years that I was able to turn to a partner for some support. It was wonderful.

Today, I took Max to the Dr and he was given two shots of antibiotics. He's been resting every since. He is such a tough kid.

Well, I'm off to make some brownies. Sarah and I are going to stir milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and crushed Heath bars into them. Steve is on a short trip with his dad, so I have to sleep without him next to me. It's surprising how quickly I grow to rely on that. He's so warm. I back up to him and he's like a full-length heating pad. Plus he smells good.

I'm sorry about Max's fever but I'm glad some antibiotics took care of the fever. Also I hope your boyfriend realizes what a value he's got in you and doesn't screw it up! :)
