I had high hopes of getting a new post up today, but I’ve spent the weekend taking care of a sick baby since Friday. Luckily I had the day off as we had plans as a family to go down to Matthews, Virginia to spend the day with friends. Rather than spending the day in, on, or beside the water I spent Friday worrying about a pitiful baby who had a fever.
Luckily our pediatrician wasn’t worried and gave me a few care instructions:
- Keep my sweet baby resting, nursing,and eating as much as we could.
- Alternate doses of Tylenol and Motrin to get the fever down.
- Call if anything changed in how frequently she was eating, wetting her diapers, or if the fever wasn’t down by Monday.
We followed instructions and it all seems to have worked. Thank you for understanding the lack of a more substantial post. See you back later this week.
