Microblog Monday: Fevers Suck

Last Tuesday, the kids both woke up with low grade fevers, but they went away after just a few hours. But then Wednesday and Thursday they battled temps between 99.5 and 101. Friday afternoon, Ayden's temp got as high as 104 degrees! Rylee's never got any higher than 101.4, but you would have never even known she was sick! Ayden on the other hand, was pretty pitiful. He barely ate anything on Friday, and even crawled into bed and put himself down for a nap. That never happens!

By Saturday afternoon they were both fever free. They had coughs and runny noses, but I'll take a cold any old day over a fever! They were fever free all day yesterday, although a little cranky and took long naps.

This morning, they woke up with no temperatures, but Miss Rylee was super cranky!!! She pretty much was crying over everything by lunch time. I took her temperature right before putting her down for a nap, only to find her fever was back up to 100.4! Ugh! Thankfully she went to sleep pretty quickly. We'll see how she is when she wakes up from nap.

I'm so over them being sick. I'll take the colds (if I have to), but I don't like the fevers. Fevers can be scary. Fevers suck.

  1. Fevers are the worst. I swear my kids sometimes get them with no other real symptoms ever developing. The last time we all got really sick, my one guy ran a damn 101 fever for 7 days. Ugh. Hope your littles feel better soon!!

  2. YES, FEVERS SUCK!!! I sure hope that they are feeling better soon and the parents can stay healthy!! Spring is just around the corner and all this cold weather and sickness should pass!! Love and hugs, Auntie

  3. Fevers do suck! Fingers crossed they are feeling better today!

  4. Fevers do suck (as does vomiting). I hope they're better today.
