Sick baby boy

I was off of work on Monday so I went out to lunch with Shannon and Brooke with Noah in tow. Noah was having a blast as usual and giggling with the girls. At PJ's I felt his head and thought he was warm. However, he was laughing and having fun so I just thought "Well, I guess he is hot". He fell asleep in the car and I then went to put him in his crib once we got home. He took a pretty long nap, but I thought nothing of it.

Once he woke up, I could just feel the heat coming off of him. I took his temperature and he was around 102. I began to just watch him but got nervous and called the on call Dr. They just said to give him Tylenol and if it got higher to take him to the ER and if he still had fever in the morning them to take him to the Dr. He just wasn't himself. He wanted to just sleep or be held.
When we woke up, he didn't have a fever. Within 30 minutes he felt super warm again and his fever was back up. I then called and made an appointment to take him to the doctor. Once we got there he was weighed and he is now 23lbs 4oz. Big boy!

Once we met with the doctor she said he had a virus and a double ear infection. Poor guy! We have an antibiotic for him and are instructed to give him Tylenol. It's been a rough 2 days with him. One second I think he is fine...then the next he has a fever and has the "glass eye" look. I hope we get over this soon, I don't like seeing him sick. We have to go back in 2 weeks for his ears. Stay tuned!
