My DS is going to be 4 in Oct, today when we were at the park for a reception/BBQ he started acting strange didnt wanna play with other children or eat or drink etc. Just told me he didnt feel good, his head hurt and we need to go. My husband suggested he drink some fluids and relax. He layed on bench next to me and kept asking me to hold him. I told my DH we need to go, my DS felt hot to the touch. When I got home I took his temp and it was 103 and he was being lethargic so I took him to see Dr at our little clinic (only medical in town) and his bp was elevated as well as his heart rate. It took an hour to get the heart rate down to 130. He got heat sick and dehydrated. (Oddly enough it was not that hot out but it was humid) they sent us home when they got fever and heart rate down. And I am worried to let him sleep alone may sound silly bcuz he has improved but his temp is back up not as high only 101.6 but thats with a bath and motrin.
