Some bad news this evening. We took Liam to the emergency pediatric clinic because he had an alarming temperature of 104-degrees! He started out with a temp this morning. I called the nurse line at his peds office. She suggested Tylenol...it was probably just a summer virus. So I gave him Tylenol and we went about our business for the day. He took an astounding four naps! When he woke from his fourth nap this evening he was bright red and very hot to the touch. That's when his temp was 104 and we took him to the clinic. By the time we got there, it had gone down to 102. By the time the doctor saw us, it was 101. The verdict: a summer flu bug that is going around. He had a very sore looking throat too. The poor guy. The doctor said that it would probably take a couple days to clear up and to feed him cold soothing foods and plenty of fluids in the meantime. (sigh) Why does he always get sick just before we leave town?!
The good news for today is that Liam did his first baby sign. I was feeding him avocado in the highchair and when he ran out I asked "do you want some more?" and he signed MORE! I'm glad that the signs are starting to sink in.
PS - He weighed 24lb 12oz fully clothed.
PPS - Liam went in the potty four times today!
