Today I'm thankful that my boys have an awesome doctor! We had to pick Thomas up from daycare early on Tuesday because he had a temp of over 100 (ok, so it's not technically a fever, but that's their policy. Whatever.). It was 100.1 He had been coughing quite a bit and had a runny nose and was fussy and didn't want to participate in any activities – definitely not like my son, but understandable if he's not feeling well. I was able to get him an appointment yesterday morning and I was also able to stay home from work with him. He's been exposed to RSV and the flu in his daycare classroom, but his doctor said that it was just an upper respiratory illness (basically a cold). However, he did have some fluid in his ear, and although it wasn't infected, Thomas doesn't have a very good track record with his ears. Doctor gave us a steroid for him (just 2 doses – one last night and one tonight) and some benydryl to help with the congestion. He had a 3+ hour nap yesterday afternoon and slept pretty good overnight as well. We decided to keep him home today again because he was still coughing some. He had a little bit of a fussy morning with Ryan (I had to go to work), but after a good lunch (Progresso soup minus the broth), he took a couple hour nap this afternoon and was much more like himself. We go back to the doctor tomorrow (he told us to just show up around 11 and he'll walk us in!) so he can recheck the ear.
