A trip to the minor med and football!

On Saturday morning Luke woke up with a fever, just a normal fever... so I gave him some meds and the fever went down, all was good! He felt fine, just a fever. We still went to Will's football game that morning, which by the way they won! After the game we came home, watched more football, ate and put the kiddos down for a nap. Luke wakes up from his nap with a super high fever... I gave him meds again, thinking it would bring it down, a hour and a half later his fever was a 104.7, I got terrified and immediately ran out the door with my lifeless, lethargic baby and headed to the Baptist Minor Med. They checked his ears and throat which both looked fine, so they still prescribed us with antibiotic because there obviously was a bad infection. (which I thought it could be a virus, but whatever you say doc)
So he got his first dosage of antibiotic on Saturday night, by Sunday he woke up feeling great, I still treated him with tylenol just in case his fever came back and this morning he woke up again fever free! We went from Saturday night me thinking all kind of horrible things that could be wrong with him to the next day going outside to play fever free.... Oh Lordy, this parenting thing is a big, fun roller coaster of emotions, but I wouldn't trade anything for it!!
Here he is at the doctor on Saturday night, he was feeling so bad he didn't want me to hold him, he just wanted to lay on the seat :( (this was taken with my phone, so bad quality)

He did start feeling better as the night ran on, he was so funny, on the way home from the doctor, he said in this sweet child voice "Mommy, all I need is my medicine and oatmeal to make me feel lots better" I LOVE THIS CHILD!!!

The rest of the weekend was filled with giving meds, watching football, cleaning and putting up my fall decor!!!! I LOVE THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, and it is super chilly here in the MidSouth!

Y'all have a blessed Monday!
