today we went to the tidepools. tonight evan is sick with the plague and keeps spiking a 104 fever. this is threatening my plans to have a slumber party tonight with all our friends! >:( wah wah parenting is hard. at least i have a bacon cheeseburger to sooth my misplaced teen angst.

Fevers always freak me out because I jump straight to worrying about brain damage. If I saw 106 I would have went straight to the ER, lol. But if it's reacting to treatment, yay. And kids are just so resilient, seriously.
yeah, i have had so many high fevers from kidney infections in my life they are basically old hat. i will take him if it stays at 106 for like, an hour, but if it just reads there (because i am super vigilant about checking temps every 20min) i don't worry too much unless it's still climbing. however i am MASSIVELY paranoid about sicknesses and i am going to worry about meningitis until he starts showing symptoms of something else.
i hope his fever breaks :( my coworkers and i were just talking about that. fevers still freak me out.
