Poor little Terryn started getting sick last Friday (so a week and a half ago). On Saturday he had a fever. He wasn't acting like his normal, cheerful self and wanted to sleep a lot. On Sunday he still had a fever so I kept him home from church and let him sleep. He didn't have much of an appetite either. That night his fever got up to 104°F. I started freaking out, but luckily I had some fever reducer which brought his fever down a couple degrees. He slept that night alright, but I think he had fever dreams because he would wake up screaming and then go back to sleep.
I took him to the doctor's the next day. He still had a fever and he just didn't feel well. They said they thought it was a virus or infection and prescribed him some antibiotic, but said that if his fever persisted into the next afternoon to bring him back. The doctor said if that was the case they'd do some blood work to see if it was something like Dengue Fever. Scary!
Luckily, Terryn improved slightly the next day. He still wasn't eating well, but his fever was down and he was acting more playful. By the next day his fever was completely gone, he was more cheerful, but he had a rash over his whole body. I figured he was probably having a reaction to the medicine which he only had one more dose to take. The day after that, the rash was gone, his countenance was improved, he was eating better and he seemed back to normal.
During the time he was sick, Terryn was sleeping a lot. He was taking 2, 3, sometimes 4 naps a day. That left me with a lot of down time that I wasn't used to. I think I was a bit sick myself, but mostly I just felt really tired. I got pretty bored and was sick of watching movies. I managed to watch the entire "Legend of the Seeker" series... seasons 1 & 2. That was a little too much TV time for me.
Thankfully by the end of the week Terryn was fine. I was feeling better too. I'm just so thankful that he's healthy again because he gave me quite the scare with the exceedingly high fever. He had the fever for about 4-5 days. I love Terryn so much and worried myself sick over him. I also want to express my love and gratitude for everyone's prayers and encouragement when they found out Terr-bear was sick. Thank you!
