*****First of all, thank you to all the ladies that helped with my question about DD's bleeding nose. By the way no one from her doctors office called me back that day. I had to call them back. I didn't use a humidifier, but I did stop using her vaporizer and cracked a window. She slept so soundly. No bleeding since that day. ******
Now, her youngest older is getting sick. I had a scare when I picked him up from school early and one of the staff said she thought he might have meningitis. Yo! Scared my heart out of my chest.
However I didn't see what she was referring to. He was coherent, no blotchy skin. His hands were really hot at first, then became ice cold. I didn't see that as a problem because he went from laying on his hands to walking around an ice cold school.
The issues we're having are: Fever (range 100.1-100.9), headache and sensitivity to light. A mild cough. Nothing like DD's. His sounds dry and isn't as frequent. He says he has no body aches.
My thermometer is killing me! It's one of those behind the ear ones. If he lays down and I try to take him temp on the side he lays down on it beeps like crazy displaying 102.9 or higher. If I try to take his temp on the side exposed it reads anywhere in the range i wrote before.
I called his doc when I picked him up from school (seriously thinking of finding a new pedi) and the nurse said keep him home, give him fluids, the usual.
The time of the year just kills me lol. It always starts with one person getting sick and it bounces from kid to kid, spreading like wildfire.
Anyway, I think I'm just going to play it by ear with this one. I don't remember (getting up in age lol) seeing the kids get a cold without a congested cough. Don't remember any of them complaining of a headache with a fever before either.
Anyone else collecting a house full of sick kids?
