My lowercase had his 4 month physical this morning (at 7:40 am -- WHAT was I thinking???). He was poked, prodded, weighed, thoroughly discussed and then given his four vaccines.
He weighed in at 9 lb 5 oz and 22 inches long. His head circumference is now on the 7th percentile curve. His length and weight are nearing the curve. The ped is quite happy with his progress.
And then tonight he got his first fever. When it hit 100.5, we called the doctor to find out what dose of infant Tylenol he should take. It's dropped since his first dose at 8:30pm, but it is still above 99 when he typically runs around 98.0-98.3.
It's breaking my heart to see my little man not feeling well. And first thing tomorrow morning, he gets his eyes dilated to do an ROP check followed by a Synagis shot to fend off the evil RSV at noon. My poor, poor little man.
