Hoping it's nothing

Friday Morning update

After posting last night, Radar woke up again and didn't go back to sleep until midnight. Low fever still burning, so I gave him some infant Tylenol.

He tossed and turned and moaned in his sleep and at 3am he felt much hotter.

101.5 F

More Tylenol and mommy held her monkey until about 4am. Then he slept pretty well until 7am. Mommy hasn't slept very much.

This morning his fever is back down to 99.5. He's a little grumpy, but otherwise seems ok. He doesn't seem to have pain. So I'm playing it by ear right now and if his fever spikes again we'll head to the doctor.

Poor monkey. This is first fever. I hope his little immune system is strong enough to fight whatever this is off quickly. Hang in there little monkey!


When I got home this afternoon...

the monkey wasn't laughing as much as usual.

He was a bit crankier than usual.

And he was even grunting a lot.

So I felt his little forehead and it felt a little hotter than usual.

And it turns out the little monkey has a low grade fever... 99.4

He's conked out now and mommy's just hoping that it's nothing!!

Lots of love,
Titi and Radar
