Rough Couple of Days

Our son’s had a seriously high fever, off and on, since Sunday.  Doctor visit Monday morning.  Stopped breathing Monday evening, but he responded to my inexpert attempts at CPR.  To hospital in an ambulance, then home again much later that night.  Doctor’s again Tuesday morning.  Infant Tylenol and Motrin at recommended intervals.  Jello’s been a big hit as a means of hydrating a strong-willed toddler who doesn’t want to drink anything that’s not milk.  Cooling baths, cool wash cloths.  He’s acting a lot more like himself, but remains a little unsteady on his feet, tires pretty quickly, but wants to play, talk, stand and spin in circles for fun.  Hoping today’s a better day, fever-wise.
