I have a sick little boy again. I am such a worrier when it comes to my kids. I'm sure some of you are too. It's like this...
My son is a 35 pound 2 year old toddler who has a extremely high endurance for pain. (Jumps off couchs and falls on his face and gets up laughing etc.) Two weeks ago, I discovered his eczema on his leg had become infected. I took him to see a nurse and she gave him a round of antibiotics. The run was ten days.
We finished the round, and lastnight four days after the last dose. He had a fever again. It wasn't high and didn't bother him. He was a busy as ever. He woke this morning fine but again this afternoon he had a fever again.
I am a worrier when it comes to the kids in the worse way. It's worse yet because I am writing this in a cabin in the woods of northern Canada, 45 mins away by boat from a nurse and 4 hours away from any sort of doctor. Our time he is almost done with a week to go and then we return to the city and our new home.
what do you think? Should I treat the fever and control my nerves? Or risk taking a sick 2 year old out in windy rainy weather to see a nurse with no way to run tests anyway.
Hope to hear any encouraging word, or advice, or simliar experience.
