DH was a little frustrated the past few days and today did not help.
Wednesday SS left our house (DH had/s MTxxxSS this week) seemingly fine, but by the end of the day he wasn't feeling well. It happens; BM texts that night SS has a low fever, DH asks for degrees. She says 100.3.
Thursday SS stays home from daycare. BM responds he is fine all day, but come evening that he has a slight fever. DH asks for degrees, but does not receive an actual temp.
Friday SS stays home from daycare. He is fine all day.
DH had to work this am, so I had to do the Saturday 11a exchange- probably my second in two years. At the exchange BM informs me the new toy she handed SS as he got out of the car was to get him to take his fever reducer. She then says SS fever was 101. I mentioned DH had said it was 100.3, and she says oh yeah, it was that too. When I asked if he had eaten she said a few bites of bagel today and not very much the last two days.
That was pretty much it. I didn't ask a lot of questions- just my confusion about the temp and about the food since I was wondering if I should feed him before his nap (SS still naps at 4 and doesn't even complain!). When we went inside he asked for Goldfish and I text DH. Halfway through his snack SS told me his mouth hurt and pulled inside his mouth. I took a look and he had a fairly large, and clearly developed, cold sore right inside his cheek. I sent an update to DH and he was upset.
He felt the cold sore should really have been communicated. SS has a history of them and he has a history of fevers when one is forming. DH just would have been happier if he had all of the info and if it didn't feel like pulling teeth.
