UPDATE.......

As I was sitting here working all of a sudden my right arm brushed up against something...and I turned and it was you standing there with all your pajamas and only in your underwear and socks...telling me you "soiled" (or so you thought)....your shirt and pajama bottoms. (You can talk so grown up sometimes-even I would probably not say SOILED but good for you and an adult-like vocabulary)

Anyway....I never did find anything wet anywhere and your underwear were dry so I think it was sweat from a fever if anything....your face was beet red....your temperature was way up to 103.......and I thought to myself, "here we go again."

You sound like you have a lot of crap in your chest now....and this is WHY I took you to the doctor yesterday...so he could prescribe an antibiotic so we could avoid this. I will probably now have to take you to the ER if this keeps up......and in fact I was going to.....but after giving you Motrin.....putting you back in bed.....you fell back to sleep.

BUT.....any time you get this in the past you never get better without amoxicillin. Never. I guess I can always call the doctor and ask him to call some in. If he won't....I will take you to the ER. I know you well enough to know what you need to get better and you need that to get better. I don't want you to end up with pneumonia again or have an infection settle around your heart since you do have mild aortic valve stenosis and insufficiency....I think sometimes the doctor forgets about that.

So I will keep working for now and we will see how you feel once you get back up....and go from there.

I wish I had a magic button to flip on to make you feel better like NOW!

Poor buddy! Hope you get the antibiotic without a trip to the ER.
