Pajama Spa Day

Today was a pajama day.

The whole live long day.

Keith was awake for only about 5 hours total the whole day.

And three of those five were after Jeffrey, his best friend in the world, came home.

Faye and I had a lot of time to play, and work on potty training.

I forgot she was wearing her undies and put her to bed.  She stayed dry the whole time!  Yay!

Honestly, I don't think she is going to be potty trained for a while yet, but we can work on it on the rare occasion we are home.

With Keith being sick, we had no where to go.

Faye and I wanted patriotic nails,

A luxurious spa day for the girls.

Patriotic nails to pass the time.

A cuddly cuddle day for Keith.

Sometimes you just need a day to slow down and take it all in.

I am hoping he does get better tomorrow, though.

A sick little guy is no fun.

Ever.

Except when he cuddles.

I love his hot little body and whimpering sighs.  The tiny arms that wrap around my neck and the snuggles into my body just make me happy.

However, I am a horrible mother for having sick children.

As Keith's fever stayed consistently high, I turned to Google.  Because that is where we all go for information, but where we should never go for health information.  

Because those commercials for meningitis terrify me.  The empty desk, and the empty swing, and the music, and the voice over guy talking about how the child was fine, then got sick and the next day died.  Scary!

Thank heavens for my brother who can set me right.  I am no longer worried it is meningitis.  And with luck, Keith may be a bit better tomorrow!  As of ten mintues ago, his fever was down to 100.8!  Yay!

Gosh. 105.5. Poor little guy! I hope he's on the mend as you read this!

Sending you hugs and wishes that your 4th of July is just as you want it this year!

Okay. Well...kinda/sorta just as you want it this year!

When the fever gets that high, my pediatrician always had me take off their clothes, wipe them down with a washcloth, and fan them. They don't like it much at the time, but they like it better than a tepid bath...and they feel lots better afterward!

If the fever goes back up in the stratosphere, and since it's not flu season and that's a high fever for other than flu...you might want to take him to the doc and make sure there isn't something going on that needs to be addressed.

As for meningitis, my doc always used to have me ask my child to put his neck down and watch closely to see if it was painful for him.

Sending prayers for healing Keith's way!

poor little guy... =( But at least you were looking on the bright side and using the day for lost on one on one time with your little girl =) I end up doing the same thing with my kids... One on one is so important but hard to get in all the time
