Sleep Tight


Blake was sick today. He was complaining yesterday after school that his head felt "hot" and I thought that he may be getting a migraine, so I gave him some Advil and he was totally fine after that. Ate a good supper and played hockey. But then he woke up at 2:30 AM and said he was hot again...I felt his head..and he was burning up. While I was going to get him some Advil he ran to the bathroom and threw up. Dale ended up sleeping with him and said he was fine the rest of the night. He was fine in the morning, so we sent him to school. At 10AM, his teacher called me at work and said he was burning up and was crying. This is one time, where I love that Dale and I work shift work..even though he was supposed to work 11-7, he changed his shift to go in at 3-10 and I was able to stay at work until 2. He was fine for the rest of the afternoon although we kept him dosed with Tylenol and Advil (I should get a royalty for advertising these companies!) which kept his fever down. He didn't eat much, but he never threw up again...still wondering if he has a virus or if he did have a migraine. Not common to have a fever with a migraine though and lots of kids have been sick in grade one. I'll have to keep this episode in mind while I following his headache history.
