Nothing throws me into a tizzy as much as when Drew has an unexplained fever.
And that's what he has today, 9 days before surgery.
This morning he told me his tummy hurt and he didn't want to eat breakfast. That didn't seem too unusual to me because he often has a tummy ache in the mornings and we always have a hard time getting him to eat breakfast. On the way to Mom Connection this morning he looked tired and almost fell asleep. Then they brought him to me because he wanted his mommy and started to cry. So he was sitting with me for a while and he felt warm so I took him home. His fever is 101.7 under his arm and he fell asleep at 10 am. The boy who does not take naps is asleep three and a half hours after he woke up. The first doctor's appointment available is not until 4:00, so we have to wait until then to figure out what is going on.
I am hoping and praying that it is something simple and easy to take care of like another ear infection, but of course my mind is running away with me and I am picturing a hospital admission and postponing surgery. I guess I'll post an update after our doctor's appointment.
