I called the nurse to ask her opinion, but before she could call me back, his temperature went up to 101.4, so I figured something was up. The pediatrician always told me that teething-temperatures don't go past 100.
I asked my MoM friends what they thought and a large number thinks it's the Coxsackie Virus (Hand, Foot and Mouth Virus - which was what the doc originally thought was the last virus Jax had, but he didn't), and a small number thinks it still may just be a nasty molar coming in. Well we did notice a small sore on Brady's lip a day ago, but assumed he bit it. I can't get a good look inside his mouth without him freaking out.
The nurse called back and gave us an appointment for tomorrow, but said if we couldn't get him calmed down by bedtime to bring him into Urgent Care (the pediatrician's office was closed at this time). About an hour after Tylenol, Brady calmed down. He took a few bites of a bagel and drank some milk and passed out. That was three hours ago, so we'll see if he needs more rounds of Tylenol through the night. I hope that when he wakes up he has no more symptoms and that it was just a molar coming in, but if you saw him today, you'd never think a molar could be this bad.... we'll see!
Jax had speech and feeding therapy today. He did really well having speech all by himself. He stayed on each activity much longer than usual. He did well with learning the baby doll's body parts and he even fed the baby doll a cup of water. He didn't do great with feeding, but that's always a touch-and-go sort of thing.
His "cleaning out" is going decent. He didn't have a morning vomit for the first time in about 10 days, but woke up early from his nap and had a bad vomit from his lunch just finishing. I was able to get him out of his crib and onto a towel on the floor so only he and I took the brunt of it all (I hate changing and washing everything in the crib). Otherwise the day went well for Jax.
So let's all hope there's not another virus running through this house, I just can't imagine what it would do to Jax right now, and of course watching Brady cry in pain brought me to tears. My poor peanut pie.
