My kid has a fever.
A 103 degree fever.
A fever with no other symptoms that anything is wrong -- no crying, no rash, no vomit, no poop of doom. Nothing.
And I can't get it to drop below 100. (Currently: 102.3)
I called the pediatrician when I had waited 30 minutes for the stupid baby tylenol to kick in.
They said to bring him in, he needed to be seen, yes this is important.
And they will see him. But not now. No. At 8 pm. It didn't matter that he was acutely ill at 2:00. 8:00 was the earliest they could do.
I had a nurse call me back to give me ideas on how to help get the temperature to break.
They don't work.
He is hot. I am tired. I am cranky. And I think I'm getting a rash from holding a hot, hot baby to my chest.
