Doctor Bound

We are headed to the pediatrician this morning... 11:15 to be exact. Chase has had a cold for over a week now and yesterday he woke up with a high fever and rough sounding cough. Why directly on the holiday... not the day before, not the day after. The fever fluctuated all day so we decided to ride it out and if he got worse, we would jump ship and go to Urgent Care (or the ER if UC wasn't open). He maintained the fever but acted fine... running and playing with Grandma and Grandpa so we decided to wait until this morning to call the doc.

This morning he woke up with another high fever so I called the doctors office immediately.... hence the 11:15 appointment. Wish us luck! My guess is a respiratory infection... we'll see how sharp my mothers intuition is!

It's the unwritten rule that small fry must always get super sick on weekends, holidays or after office hours. Always! :-) I hope he gets better soon.

Claire had a bad stomachache all day on Easter (not a virus...more that Grandpa kept feeding her pizza cause she has him wrapped around her little finger). It always happens that way!

How is the little man? Poor sweet boy! I hope he's feeling better soon!!!
