Thursday was relatively uneventful. The doctor allowed for us to slowly introduce formula again (we begged him after your lack of sleep the night before). I cared for Nathaniel while Paul worked hard to get the insurance figured out, since the medication was almost $100! We did, however, have to get an eye drop for Nathaniel...he has pink eye...ugh!!
Thursday night and Friday morning Nathaniel was running around 101 degree temperature. After calling the doctor, again, they had us come in, especially because the weekend was coming up.
Since Wednesday, Nathaniel has gone from 14lbs 9oz - to - 15lbs 1oz. I was very happy to see him gaining weight, even if it was just a little bit!
The doctor didn't think there was a bacteria infection causing the fever, but probably just Nathaniel's little body reacting to new surroundings and new germs. We are just to keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't get too high (103 -105).
The medication that were are giving Nathaniel for the parasite is really strong and could be hard on his stomach (not so good since his tummy is already not happy). It also makes him REALLY drowsy. The little happy, silly boy has disappeared for a short time.
I feel so helpless not being able to make my son better...
