Watching & Waiting

It’s been a long 24 hours.

Baby MPB has slowly been improving.  As long as we stay on top of his Tylenol and Advil doses his fever seems to be rather low.  At points it has even been non-existent.

But, we were told the fever is likely the start of some sort of illness, and it could take up to 4 days to see what the illness really is.  So, we keep watching and waiting knowing that something may still be on the horizon.

And, we keep hoping that our little guy continues to improve and that his illness, whatever it may be, is nothing serious.

And at the same time, I also have to work to not be consumed with worry and anxiety.  I must say, watching him being so sick and not being able to help has probably been one of the most challenging aspects of parenting that I’ve encountered thus far.  I’m suddenly very thankful for how healthy he has been since birth, and I just keep hoping he beats this illness ASAP so he doesn’t have to continue to suffer. Watching him in pain just breaks my heart.

And, thank you to everyone for their well wishes and positive comments yesterday.  No matter the circumstances it always bring peace and joy to my heart to know how loved Baby MPB is from every corner of the world.

  1. I can’t imagine trying to focus on work when you are worried about your baby… Sounds like he is in excellent care though, with the watchful eyes of medical professionals and his loving and attentive parents. Here’s hoping it was just a minor bug that continues to go away as his fever goes down.

  2. I’m hoping BMPD is feeling better soon! When Penelope got sick one time, the doctor said it was probably because everything goes in their mouths around this age and they pick up little viruses and stuff. Hope this passes quickly!

  3. Thank goodness he’s improving. It must be terrible to watch. You’re doing great, staying sane! Get well soon, little one. X


  4. I hope that he only gets better, and doesn’t come down with something bad. Keep up with the meds, and good luck!! Give him a squish from me!


  5. I just saw the posts. Please do the following to bring his temperature down naturally:
    Cut a potato into circles and put into his socks. Put the socks on. Let them be on him till the potato becomes dry. My boy had temperature last March that wouldnt go down. One lady told me about this and it worked. Let him also drink water (if his age allows).


  6. There is nothing worse than your own child being sick. (Vomiting is even worse, in my opinion. I think I still have worry/panic over it happening again.) Hoping MBP gets better quick!
