I had a really tough time falling asleep last night. I wasn’t even feeling stressed out or anything like that. I just couldn’t get comfortable and ended up moving to the couch about 4 am.
Anyway, Emmett has up on and off last night. In fact, he’s been this way for the last few nights.
This morning when it came time to get ready for school, we finally pieced together why he’s been struggling more than usual. It’s a fever flare.
I mentioned earlier in the week that we could be looking at one but I wasn’t going to jump to conclusions or possibly even jinx anyone by making that suggestion out loud.
Today however, Emmett is actually running a fever and can’t go to school. Truthfully, I don’t think he was going today anyway because at 8:30 am, we were still struggling with shoes and socks. Emmett was hysterical and there was no way to get him through this.
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a fever flare but when we put all the symptoms together, it’s become clear that we’re dealing with one right now.
