Update on Grayson

Well, I was wrong. It isn't croup, it's influenza. The poor child is just miserable. They chose to not give him Tamiflu because in children as young/small as him it can cause psychotic episodes. Well, we don't need any of those! His fever is lingering at 104.5. It goes down a bit with Motrin, but won't stay down. He's also taking Albuterol treatments with the nebulizer. He hates it, but it seems to be helping his breathing. If his temp gets much higher or he grows more lethargic or if he spikes a fever and goes into a febrile seizure, he'll have to go to the hospital. He isn't eating and barely drinking. His eyes are glassy and rimmed in red. It was so hard to leave him and come to work but he is in the capable hands of his daddy. So, crossing fingers the other kids don't get this. Nathan has already had it and I took a preventative of Tamiflu when Woody was sick, so hopefully it'll leave us alone. I've been sanitizing everything in the house and making the girls wash their hands A LOT. Anyway, it's going to be a long 12 hours at work knowing my baby is sick. :(

Awww.......that's too bad :( Like I said, we've all been sick too.......not THAT bad though. Peyton was sick a couple weeks ago and had a little fever and everything, but luckily he was much better in a couple days. Let him know that we want to see him Wednesday, Peyton wants to play! Maybe that'll help ;) Talk to you soon!
