Fevers and a very strong boy *updated

2 am, and we are finally down to a workable fever of 101.2...I am so thankful that is the lowest it has been since late yesterday. We managed to keep him home it was touch and go there for awhile and I was ready to throw him in the car. What kept me from doing that is the knowledge there was nothing more they would have done except start an IV and he was drinking plenty of fluids, the only thing would have been if the diastat wouldn stop the seizures after 7 minutes but that wasnt an issue. The highest it got was 104.5. Bless his heart he was a trooper he kept saying "lets treat it at home" "lets treat it at home" over and over, he did everything we asked he has taken meds, taken baths, rags on the forehead, etc etc. He is drinking water like crazy because he has learned if he gets dehydrated first thing they will do is the iv. Don't even have to ask him to drink he is like I need more cold water. Scary to see him so sick, no matter how many times you deal with it, how worse I have seen it, still scares me each and every time. We will be at the doc's office first thing this morning, hopefully before all the other germs get there so we don't get more on top of this one.

* 7:05 this morning fever finally broke!
