Saturday Night FEVER

I really should say more like Friday night fever. All of the babies have a super high fever. They woke up from there nap yesterday with 102-103 ' fever. It is so sad to see them so sick. They got there last RSV shots Thursday. While we were there Ella had 102 fever, so they checked her out and found she had an ear infection. We noticed Cole was digging in his ear while we were there, so checked him and sure enough he had an ear infection too. I asked the dr. to check the other two but he insisted they were fine. I can't really understand why he wouldn't check them. Let me just add this is not our pediatrician, this is the Infectious Disease Control doctor that gives them the RSV injections. I didn't really fight him, since really they were acting fine, not pulling at ears or anything, I should of went with my "mommy insticnt" and MADE them check the other two. I know better now. Then like I mentioned before Friday they wake up at 3pm from the nap, and the other two boys, plus Cole are burning up with fever. I have been up every 3 hrs around the clock giving them Motrin & Tylenol. Oh, man how quickly I forgot how great it is to sleep through the night, that brought back some memories for me.HA! Now they are just laying around miserable and fighting fevers. I really feel like this is viral and not an ear infection, because Cole is on an antibiotic for 3 days now, and still running high fever. The good news is,Cooper seems to have turned the corner for the better and has been fever free since 6am. Ella has been over the fever since Friday, she is the one that actually got sick first on Wednesday night. I am hoping this will be over soon, I am so helpless, and they are so miserable. Pray we get over this soon.

Fevers always run their highest in the evening/wee hours of the morning and then they get lower in the morning/day time. It probably is viral...keep them hydrated as best you can and I'm sure they'll be just fine. They should have mobile immunizations, where the person giving them comes to you!
