    So my son has had a fever for three days, went away today and then came back strong. He was at 104.4 when I took him into the ER, just say we didn't have to wait to get a room.
    He ended up having a ear infection and probably the swine flu, so I am thinking he just had the regular flu two weeks ago or something else. I could have tested him tonight but there was no real point.
    The ER looked like one of the movies where everyone has the plague, everyone was wearing masks plus the place was packed. We were lucky, got seen right away, they got his fever down, gave him a prescription and we were able to leave. Luckly now he is sleeping but I probably won't sleep much tonight.

    Once they got his fever down and he actually took a popsicle, he was doing much better. He wouldn't drink or eat anything for the last three days. He was just sick two weeks ago, so he has lost 6lbs in three weeks.
    Hopefully after this he is done being sick for awhile. Knock on wood!

    Yep. Then it starts all over again in kindergarten with new exposures.

    Hope the child is running around today.
