So difficult child 2's been sick with a flu bug since last Sunday night. Fever ranging from 100 to over 103 from Sunday to Wednesday. Yesterday (Thursday) his temp was below normal the three times I took it between 6am and 12:30pm. Then at 4:30pm it jumped to 99.9 and it was 99.7 when I took it again at 9:30pm Today it was 98.9 at 10am, 99.8 at noon, and it jumped to 101 at 4:30pm, which now has me concerned. He started with a hacking cough yesterday, and despite giving him a cough suppressant and decongestant (his nose has no discharge but I can heare post-nasal stuff) yesterday and today, it's not really helping. Out of desperation, I gave him a puff off some Advair we have, hoping it would help the bronchial irritation he obviously has. I'm taking him to the after-hours clinic tonight since we can't get in to see the pediatrician... But what's up with the fever bouncing back like that?
