the "bug" part 2

Last Friday, Jacob had the stomach bug/fever. Well, last night Daniel had the "fever"! And what a fever it was! I am hoping this was part of the bug that already went through this house and nothing new. Daniel had been fine the entire day yesterday. At about 8:30 last night he spiked a 104 degree fever! He had the chills and was nodding off to sleep. By 9:00 we were in the ER. They checked him for everything from the flu to strep throat, ear infection, RSV and nothing showed. They took bloodwork and the only thing that showed up was his white blood cell count was elevated. He was given two shots of antibiotics and we were finally sent home at 3:00 AM this morning. What a long night. I slept about an hour last night. He did get to sleep some in the ER so he was up at his usual 7:00 time. With trick or treating tonight I am hoping he still feels better. I am keeping up the tylenol and he is fever free at the moment. I think this is the third year in a row that he has been sick on Halloween. Popular week!
