The joys of parenthood are without measure. Normally I would agree but this week has been one of stress and worry for me. Last Friday our 7 year old had surgery….. Nothing super major but surgery none the less.
Friday night into Saturday morning we were still dealing with the affects of anestsiea and pain meds. Sunday he was fine, Monday he went to school, Tuesday night he started running a low grade fever. Yesterday he stayed home. This EARLY I woke up to my son having a raging temperature and vomiting.
Today we will be making a trip to his doctor to find out what the heck is going on. His discharge papers say seek immediate medical attention for a temperature over 101 after Tylenol but this mom says 2 days of fever and now vomiting…….something is very wrong with that picture.
When things are OK the joys of parenthood ARE without measure but when things are like they are now with a super sick child the stresses of parenthood are also without measure.
