A Not-So-Happy Halloween

Unfortunately, Porter didn't have the best 1st Halloween experience today. We had a rough night last night with some congestion and a pretty poor night's sleep and this morning he woke up with his first fever of 101.4. I called the doctor right away and she had us come in since it was his first fever. He is super congested and she said his right ear looks a little red and has some fluid, but is not yet infected. She gave him a prescription for antibiotics and will have us start this weekend if his fever doesn't break. We have given him tylenol, which seems to make him feel better, but as soon as it wears off his temperature rises again. I am really hoping and praying that he will sleep well tonight and feel better so we don't have to start the antibiotics! We have also started breathing treatments three times a day.

So, Porter had to miss his first Halloween party this morning! I know it wasn't really for him, but for me! I am sad I didn't get to see the little cuties in their costumes, but I am glad we made the trip to the doctor. I did put him in his little golf outfit since it's still comfy, and the doctor and the nurse LOVED it! They even took pictures of him! He was a champ tonight and is sleeping peacefully now in his swing where he can breathe a lot easier. Hopefully the trick-or-treaters are done for the night and we won't have any more doorbell rings!

We hope tomorrow brings less snot and lower temperatures...
