so my 4 1/2 yr old had a cough no biggie.. acted fine no temp. eating , playing all normal.. so he went to school . its only 3 hrs b/c its a prek for his services ( speech & ot) so not a long day.. anyway he left just fine but came home soooo unlike himself. not talkative, kinda withdrawn he played outside which he loves to had moments of being perked up but this kid is usually SOOOOOO yappy & hyper its borderline adhd really.. well today he was more just quiet & blah.. his grandparents even stopped by & he LOVESS them but he barely reacted he was happy to see them & came over but was not very reactive.. it was weird he said hi & smiled went back to play normally..
we stayed outside 2 hrs letting him play.. he drank, played.. fine..
anyway he began to cough more & sound more congested so we gaev him soup which he ate it all & we took his temp it was only 100.4 . usually when he is sick he gets high fevers so this was nothing for him.. at 630 pm which is early for him we gave him cold meds & meds for a fever just incase it spikes in his sleep & snet him off to bed he did NOT fight us or come back down 100x like usual.. so weird for him again. =(
so i guess he is realllllly not feeling well. ive seen him act better with way higher fevers & more sickness
dh said lets see how he is tomorrow abotu school but im keeping him home.. its friday & he needs to just rest i think plus 100.4 is a fever & above his schools 99.9 policy less than 24 hrs so no go..
i hope its just a cold but he never acts this sick so im a bit worried yet id feel silly bringing him to a dr for 100.4 & regualr cold symtoms. =/
not sure if theres much to say to this i guess im just venting bc im concerned.
its our anniversary too so dh is bringing in food from a nice place we're staying in =)
