I need a money tree

Last night was rough. Mr. Hot Potato thought he needed to sleep attached to my boob All.Night.Long. Stinker. This morning he woke up with a fever of 101 and about 30 minutes later it was up to 103 so I gave him some tylenol and headed out to find an urgent care open on Sundays.

We ended up going to the one we went to on Weds and this time they believed me when I said he was sick and burning up. They didn't open until 11 so we ended up waiting for an hour in the car. By the time we were seen, it had been 2.5 hours since I had given him the tylenol and his fever was still at 103. So, the doctor gave us a sheet and sent us to the pediatric ER.

They did a chest x-ray and ran a catheter to check for UTI. Chest was clear, but his urine was not and after spending about 5 hours in the ER, we came home with more antibiotics. I greatly fear the bills from all of this.

In summary, after his first week at daycare, my poor little baby has come down with an ear infection, strep throat and a UTI. W.T.F.


  1. Glad you got some answers...hope he gets better really soon

  2. OMGosh. I'm so sorry to hear all of this. Thinking of you and your little one.
