The awsomeness of a 4 month old with the flu!!!
A 4 month old with the flu, I have decided, is NOT in anyway FUN! Especially when you have to stay up until 1am to give yourself IV therapy due to MRSA infection. I am so freakin' exhausted. Zeke was up every 15 minutes with a VERY high fever, vomiting, and the runs. We went to the ER this morning and his temp was 102.8!!! When I called the after hours nurse for John's Hopkins to get permission to take him, she thought maybe he was having an allergic reaction to the Hep. B vaccine he had Friday morning. When we got the ER the Dr. assured me, and my father, that it was just the flu. He has been sleeping most of the day and seems to have reduced the fever a bit. The Dr. said that this could go on for up to a week!!! I don't know if I can handle this! I am so exhausted from having to stay up for myself, then to have to stay up all night to take care of Zeke doesn't help. I love my kids so much and that is what is making me push through this day and this night. I know that I can make it:) Poor Zeke:(
