I think we have finally survived Truman’s first illness. Last Sunday he had a fever of 101.5 all night. The next morning I took him to see his doctor. He was getting an ear infection and the beginning of a chest cold. They put him on a three day antibiotic. On Wednesday night his temperature was 103. We went to the ER where they did x-rays and a blood test (I was so glad when I walked in and saw it was our doctor on call that night!) He determined that Truman was fighting a viral and bacterial infection at the same time (and pink eye).  I am hoping that we won’t get sick the rest of the winter!
