fevers are suppose to go down with motrin right? small update
Got him a dr appt for 1.... after I annoyed the nurse about how often to give meds.... she then said "wait are you the mom of the kids with the scary high temps of 106?". Said yup thats me, she must of ran to talk to dr since computers are still down and came back and said his dr will see him at 1! He is now shivering and 104 with Tylenol in his system now for 2 hours.be back later to update.
Update on dr appt.... so they tested for strep, rsv and the flu. All negative. So the dr thinks its a virus, specifically roseola (spelling). She wants to recheck him tomorrow and a possible blood test. I was directed to take him to er if his fever reaches 106. Otherwise to keep alternating Tylenol and motrin every 3 hours and push fluids. I was also told to keep close eye on his breathing because his tonsils were really swollen but his ears are fine as is everything else.
