There is this weird thing that has happened with each of our kids when they were getting ready to turn 6 months old.
The Genius got a real bad flu bug. She was so sick that we had to take her to urgent care. It was short lived but no fun.
The Hippie was 6 days shy of turning 6 months old and she started coughing and breathing funny. We took her in and she ended up getting emergency breathing treatments. We brought her home with a nebulizer and had to wake her every 2 hours to give her breathing treatments.
The Professor will be turning 6 months old very soon and Tuesday night we ended up taking him to the ER. He had minor symptoms...drainage and a cough. But he was so hot, not nursing and was very lethargic. He had a fever of 103.8 when we took him in. They ran a bunch of tests but it ended up being a plain ole' virus. He is still trying to get 100% better.
My mom said maybe it is like a rite of passage for our kids. I just think it is very weird. Certainly a "tradition" I could live without.
Feel better soon Professor! Mommy wants to hear you laugh.
