Everyone is tired

So, Owen spiked a really high fever Friday night. It got so bad that we had to take him to Urgent Care. My mum was convinced it was an ear infection, but no dice. It isn’t strep either–they took like a billion cultures to be sure. All we can do is wait it out, and that is incredibly difficult. He can’t sleep, and when he does, it’s a battle to stay asleep. It’s never warm or cool enough for him, and he can’t even enjoy a bath.

Technically, everything will be okay. Right now, it’s just hard not to live from one minute to the next. His fever was gone for a while today, but it came back after a few hours. We learned that he hates Motrin but Pediacare is okay.

One small bright side is that while I stayed up with him into the wee hours of the night, I finished two of the books I was reading.
