A long weekend for a sick little boy

Last Thursday morning Jaydon woke up hot and complaining. I could tell he had a headache and possibly his body ached as well. He spent the day either in bed or in his chair watching the kids show “Deigo.”

Later that night Jaydon did not sleep much and neither did I. Every time he woke up mommy or I would go in his room and give Jaydon some water and then rock him back to sleep.

We originally thought Jaydon had a fever but on Friday our family doctor said his temperature was 97.8. This meant Jaydon most likely has a cold.

Buy Friday evening Jaydon’s headache and high body temperature had subsided some. Unfortunately it was not enough to stop Jaydon from waking up several more times at night coughing and complaining.

Saturday Jaydon started sneezing and on Sunday he had developed a runny noise.

When I started to write this blog post Sunday night I could hear Jaydon over the baby monitor in his bed coughing. Now as I finish he is quite. Before putting Jaydon down for the night we gave him some medicine just as we had the last couple of nights.

I hope Jaydon sleeps through the night and wakes up happy and healthy Monday. If not then I will get up again to rock and comfort Jaydon back to sleep.


Monday Morning
Jaydon finally made it through the night without waking up. Although he is still in bed as I post this update at 11:00am. Jaydon woke up a couple of times this morning but did not want to get up. Instead he went back to sleep. If Jaydon is not up by noon I will have to get him up. At least his coughing has stopped and he no longer feels hot.

11:30am … Jaydon called me from his room. He’s finally up and eating cereal. His cough is still there but it’s not as bad as the day before.

    Those night time coughing fits are rough. I hope Jaydon feels better soon.

    Hope your lil’ guy feels better real soon. It is so hard to see our kiddos not acting like themselves.

      We’ve only given him baby tylenol or cough medicine for toddlers but he seems so mellow and tired all the time. It’s strange.

    Poor little thing, I know exactly what he’s going through. We’ve been there with our 20 months old daughter for too many times. It’s painful for a parent to see their angels suffering like this and not be able to do much to help.

    Get well soon, little Jaydon.

    Crosby had the same funk a few ago and it was a tough time for all of us. I hope that Jaydon is feeling better today.

    I feel for you. We’re having the same restless nights due to coughing and sneezing here. It’s horrible for them when they can’t get the sleep they so need to feel better.
