Poor Peyton

He was a tad bit cranky over the weekend. I thought it was just teeth.

He developed a runny/congested nose on Monday throughout the day and was drooling like crazy and still irritable. Again, I thought it was just teeth.

He woke up on Tuesday kinda cranky, but I gave him some Motrin, thinking it was teeth, and took him to Lynne's.

She called me at 12:30 and his fever was at 101. She was going to put him down for a nap and call me when he woke up.

She woke him up around 3:00 and called me and it was up to 102. These temps are too high for teeth alone.

So, Todd came and picked me up and we went and picked him up. I managed to get in to see the doctor at 4:00.

He thankfully tested negative for both strains of the flu. His ears were clear. His throat – not so much.

The doctor diagnosed him with Tonsillitis. Not full blown or anything, but he had pockets of puss all over his throat and tonsils.

Poor little guy. No wonder he was so cranky.

We got home and Todd went to go fill his prescription and he just laid on me.

If you know Peyton, that child does not sit still, much less lay still unless he's sleeping. Confession: I totally loved him cuddling with me. Of course I hate WHY he's doing it, but I'll take it!!

So, I'm home with him today. He's on an antibiotic. I hope he's back to normal in no time!
