We just got back from the ER with our little pickle. When his fever got up to 103.8 we gave him a room temperature bath and a dose of Tylenol. Then we looked at eachother and knew that the only way any of us were going to feel better was if we went to the ER and had him checked out. He has a virus, THE virus according to the doctor that is striking this area pretty hard right now. Yup, we are under quarantine. It is highly contagious and with everything from a high fever to stuff coming out both ends I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Gryffin is crashed out in bed and I am soon to follow. There were high points tonight though: it will be over in 3-7 days, Gryffin is extremely healthy otherwise and is not dehydrated and it only took us 2 hours in the ER. I think that is a new world record! Oh yeah, and Mike scored some really grubby scrubs because Gryffin yacked all over him in triage. Lets just say I won't be fixing Kiel basa and carrots for a long time.
