Jude is pretty sick. He woke up last night at 2:30 screaming with a 103.6 fever. We finally got it down some, and then began to wonder if this was truly an issue with teeth. The fever seemed awfully high for teeth. Jude finally fell back to sleep a little before six. I mustered the courage to text my boss and ask him if I could come in an hour late. He agreed, and I laid back down for a few minutes, and ........ Jude woke up. Mike took him in the other room, and I followed a bit later. Jude was shaking internally and his breathing was shallow, so we called the doctor asap! According to the doctor Jude's fever was to high to be teeth. So Jude is currently at Baylor with the doctor getting checked out. I am waiting to hear what the diagnosis is, and will head that direction if he is admitted. Ugh, I hate being away from him when he is ill.
** update ** The doctor said Jude's ears, nose, throat, and flu test are all clear. He believes it's something viral and has told us to watch him over the weekend. He said if his fever is still high on Monday to bring him back. I trust our doctor, but I am not sure this is 100% accurate, but we will see. I believe Jude might have something going on internally in his stomach somewhere. I also put a call into his neuro to see what impact his high fever will have with his seizures, and seizure meds.
