I think that no matter how many times your child gets sick, even if it's just a cold, that helpless feeling will never go away. It's now been a handful of times that I've seen that awful number of 104 show up on the thermometer and every single time my heart starts racing and I look into my baby's eyes full of fear and question "is this ok?" Numerous doctor's have told me repeatedly yes, don't bring him in until it hits 105 but I just can't help but want someone, anyone to do SOMETHING when I feel so helpless and out of control. Jackson has been such a trooper through every illness he's had. We are now on our 3rd round of Croup since last year and I am always fearful that that uncontrollable, uncomfortable sounding seal bark is going to turn into something worse. This bout of the bark has got to be the worse thus far. Poor baby can hardly hold his eyes open most of the day and for only the 2nd time since he's been alive has Jackson fallen asleep just laying on the floor.
This just goes to show you how incredibly awful he must feel....
|Anyone that knows Jackson knows that he is a HUGE ham for the camera every time it's pointed at him.....poor little guy :(|
For now I will give him the best medicine I can...lots of hugs and kisses!
