Nestof3 Posted August 6, 2012 Share Posted August 6, 2012 So, Ben started a fever of 102 on Tuesday. It was high -- getting up to 104.5 until Friday when it dropped to 100. He had a mild productive cough, and had been resting as I don't treat for fever until bedtime. On Saturday, his temp was 99 and he was bouncy and normal with a hint of coughing. My dh had planned a trip with them to go on the river, so they left thinking he was over it. I asked how he was doing over the weekend, and I was told fine. Last night, dh told me he had a fever of 100.6 He was supposed to participate in a Lego summer camp this week starting today, so they are driving home early today. The thermometer is in the trunk, and I don't know if he has a fever. I need to know if I need to make a doctor's appt! What was he thinking to wait until last night to take his temp? Why didn't he check it this morning? I've never had a child sick this long. He also has an area on his back that is very sensitive to touch, and I'm wondering if it could be nerve damage from the accident. He wasn't really jarred much. Thanks for listening.
