A BAD VIRUS!

So all day Monday I thought that Jayden kinda felt warm. He's felt warm a lot while he's been getting his teeth, so I didn't really think much of it. I put him to bed around 8 and not knowing if he would sleep all night or not, I TRIED to head to bed shortly thereafter, although I didn't make it until 10:30. At 12:30 Jayden woke up and as I was jumping out of bed Chris stopped me and told me that he's been making little noises all night (Chris had just gone to bed) So I waited a minute and then it turned into a scream, so I went in and picked him up and he was on fire. That poor little guy was so HOT. So we took off his footed pj's, so the heat had an escape route and gave him some medicine. We took his temperature and it was around 103 degrees, and then we laid him in between us and he rolled around and around and finally cuddled up right next to Chris. It was so cute, I had to get a picture.
He slept that way for about a half hour and then woke up, and he was extremely stinky. So I went to change his diaper and he has diarrhea too. Every time I would change his diaper he would just scream, the cold wipes on his little sore bottom was just not a good combination. It is so sad. So I took him out on the couch and every 15 to 20 minutes he would wake up. He was just so uncomfortable and couldn't get comfy. It was so sad. I took his temperature again and it was 104.3. Holy cow! He finally went to sleep at 4 and didn't wake up until 6:30. So that was nice.I called the doctor and they said that there is a virus going around, so just watch it basically and if the fever lasts more then 3 days to bring him in. She also said diarrhea lasts 7 to 10 days. We're not excited about that. His temperature finally dropped to 100 at like 3pm. So we put him to bed last night and he only woke up at 11 and his body was so cool. It was wonderful. So hopefully it's gone for now. It was not very much fun! But we are all doing much, much better today! Just watch out for viruses.

How sad! It isn't any fun when they just don't feel good and you don't really know what to do. That is a very cute picture though! :O) Glad that he is feeling and sleeping better. Thanks for the heads up!
