Cullen is sick

Like full blown head cold with a fever (highest 101.2 rectally) sick....poor baby. He's had a cold before, but this was the first time I felt the need to take him to the doctor to rule out anything more serious because he's also had tummy problems (as in diarrhea) since Saturday. Turns out the stomach issues are probably just a coincidence and most likely something I ate that didn't agree with him(which is what we thought to begin with until the fever and runny nose/eyes came into play), but because he IS still so small I'm glad I went the "better safe than sorry" route.

Anyways, the routine is the same.....tylenol every 4 hours for fever or discomfort, watch and make sure things don't get worse like moving into his chest, steam or a humidifier for nasal stuffiness (which surprisingly he doesn't have a lot of), keep him home (ie-no babysitter) for 24 hours and of course lots of love from mommy ;-)
