So, after finally breaking down and telling my mom we booked the Mexico trip and getting a guilt trip from he!! from her about it, DS gets sick. Around 3 o'clock DS got up from his nap and wanted his sippy cup. He said his mouth itched. I looked in it and there were little red dots all over the roof of his mouth towards the back. 2 days ago he had a rash on his body, but it didn't hang out long and we still didn't have our a/c on yet (90 degrees and all) so we just thought it was heat rash. Now I'm not so sure. I called the dr's office and they wanted to know if it would be alright to make an appt tomorrow morning cause they didn't have anything today so I said sure, no problem, it doesn't seem too bad. Then, by 6 o'clock I noticed that he was dozing on the couch which is not like my little monkey. I checked his temp and sure enough it was 101. By around 8 o'clock it was up to 101.5 so it wasn't going up fast or anything, which was good. I got him to lay down and watch a movie, eat a little soup and just rest. It was down to 99.9 by the time he sacked out around 9:45. And to top it off, DH was gone all evening at work and just got home a little while ago.
On a good note, I steamed up some carrots and Clara sat and ate them all by herself tonight. It's the first time she's had the coordination to actually get some in her mouth. She was getting about 2 out of 10 at first, but by the end I'd say she was averaging 50% of them. She took a 3 hour nap after downing a 4 oz formula bottle and was happier tonight than she has been all week. Poor baby girl. Since I have to take DS in to the dr tomorrow, I'm going to corner him about my supply issues too, maybe he'll have some ideas. I have an appt set for myself, but it's not for another week. I'm ready to consistently have a happy baby back!
