Still with the fever

The Boy is still sporting a 101 degree temperature right now, and it's getting a little bit irritating. It feels like 95% of the issues are being caused by the lesion on his diaper area, and i wonder if much of this could have been averted.

It's frustrating, truly. Every time I feel like he should be getting better - like this morning, when he got a solid 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep before we did the diaper thing - he takes a step backwards on the fever. It is concerning when an otherwise active and engaged 2 year old is just lying in bed and snuggling, with no books, toys, television, or anything.

I know it could be worse, but this is a bad one. I have a feeling we'll end up back in the PICU before we're done.

One of the other bad parts is our nurse today. They really bring out the B and C team on the weekends. This one tends to cackle like a hyena at the drop of a hat. Annoying.

That is definitely frustrating, to say the least.

I think you could write a book on the nurses alone! :)
