Fever Update

Well, I'm happy to say that the fever is gone and T2 is up and back to normal today. I'm not sure what he had, as his only symptom was the fever, but I'm sure glad it didn't last long, only about 12 hours.

I'm also very happy to say that he did not get any medication whatsoever! His temp never went over 102, so that was good. I was taking his temp every 30-45 minutes during the first few hours. Here's the breakdown:

12:15pm - 99.8
12:45pm - 100.7
2:00pm - 102
2:45pm - 102
3:15pm - 102
4:30pm - 101.6
6:30pm - 101.5
8:00pm - 100.9
12:15am - 99.3

This morning it wasn't even at normal temperature. It was like 97.8.

I had made up my mind that if it was still close to 102 before bed that I might give him some motrin, but thankfully it was down.

This convinces me that unless a temp gets very high, no more fever reducers for us! Why can't we just let our bodies do what it needs to do to help us heal and get well? I just wish I would have learned about this kind of thing years ago! Better late than never I guess.
