What a Day

Today has been quite the day. Layne did not sleep very well last night. He got up about 5 or 6 different times. He rarely does that. Today he was very irritable. Besides being irritable he was just not himself. This afternoon he did not want to play with anything he just wanted to be held which is very unlike him. When we went outside, I put him in the swing and he immediately fell asleep. That is so UNLIKE him. He usually is fully of energy and just plain "wild" outside. When we got home from daycare I checked his temp because he was really sluggish. His temp was 101.3 . I called Matt and he came home immediately to drive us to the acute care. When the nurse checked his temp at the office it was 100.2 . They drew some blood and did an RSV/Influenza test on him. His blood count was normal and he doesn't have RSV. However, he does have influenza b. The doctor couldn't prescribe him anything but nebs but did recommend that we give a small dose of zyrtec. The doctor said that he could have this for about 7-10 days. I just hope that he gets better before that. I'm just glad that he didn't have RSV. Hopefully we won't be up all night but I have a bad feeling that we will. Please keep Layne in your prayers that he will get better soon and that neither Matt or myself get sick with this!
