For the last week or so, Henrik has been sniffly, but hadn't shown any signs of being sick so everything pointed towards it being allergies.
And it probably was, but on Sunday morning he woke up early with a fever. We kept an eye on him through the day, and gave him some Motrin and Tylenol to keep the fever down. He did quite well, but was starting to get more congested (and his snot was turning colors).
Since he went to a birthday party on Saturday we wanted to make sure that it wasn't something contagious that other parents should be worried about (the flu). We took him in yesterday afternoon, and the flu test came back negative. Out pedi said it's likely an infection, we got prescribed some antibiotics and will take it easy for the next few days. His fever isn't as high any more and the worst of it seems to be over.
But he still wakes up at night and going back to sleep can be hard since he's congested. While we have been spoiled by him being such a good sleeper, I have to admit I don't mind getting up -- he is super cuddly and curls up on you to go back to sleep.
Anyway, he seems to be staying asleep this time so I should go get another couple of hours myself now.
[Brandy is a little behind on blogging the birthday party. I'm sure something will show up here in the next couple of days. :-)]
