Tooth number 19! Starting Saturday night Austin woke up at 10:00pm and was on fire. He was around 102. Then the rest of the weekend through Monday he had on again off again fever. The problem this time was he kept refusing to take the ibuprofen, oh silly toddler! Tuesday night Dustin was brushing A's teeth and spotted the top left molar and last night I got a quick peek at it. 19 down, 1 to go- I will not miss this phase with him!
I think when he is teething it suppresses his immune system and he gets whatever viral crap is going around. Even though the tooth is out now his nose has been pouring and last night it drained into his throat/lungs and he was up often choking it out. I am keeping him home today for extra rest and lovins.
At 10:00 last night I went in to his room and set up a humidifier. I also tried putting a small pillow under his mattress to prop up his head. I brought him out and gave him a teaspoon of honey. So I think the honey gave him a sugar high, seriously this kid was buzzing around the living room giggling until midnight. Then when I finally put him to bed I heard him in there carrying on so I went to check it out and he was playing around on the elevated mattress and using it to try and reach his Thomas the Train wall decoration. I yanked the pillow and made him sleep flat so of course he was up coughing and choking. Poor kid, we are staying home today to rest and recuperate.
