PediaCare Cold and Flu Care Basket Giveaway (Closed)

It’s all over Twitter, all over Facebook, everywhere I turn…sickness!  It seems like that is all people are talking about these days.  In fact, it has even hit my family.  It was my children first, then me.  My husband is the only one that has been spared.

I know I’m not alone in saying that when my children are sick, it’s the worst possible feeling in the world.  As a mother, our natural instinct is the desire to make our children feel better.  But sometimes, we just can’t.

I remember staying up most of the night when my youngest was running a really high fever a couple of months ago.  I was terrified.  I just wanted my little boy to feel better.  His fever was 104.3 and in all my years of parenting, it’s the first time any of my children have had a fever over 103.  I immediately panicked, thinking the worst, ready to head to the ER.  My husband, the calm one, decided that we needed to see if he would respond to medication that was formulated to bring down his fever before heading out.  I did not want to wait.  I wanted to rush my baby to the hospital.  But since I knew that sometimes I have a tendency to over-react, I relented and stayed home.

We gave the little guy some medication, took off his pajamas, and draped cold washcloths on his neck and forehead.  Every 10 or 15 minutes I would take his temperature to see if it was working.  After 30 minutes of no change, I was determined to get my baby boy to the hospital.  But the voice of reason (that would be my husband) said we should give it just a little bit longer.  Again, I listened and the next time I checked his temperature, it had dropped.  While it wasn’t a big drop, it was a drop nonetheless.

I continued to change out the cold washcloths and eventually, his fever was gone and he was resting peacefully.  I’ll never forget that night.  It’s a night I hope I never have to repeat with any of my children.  But I told you all about that horrible night so that you can be prepared if something like this happens to you.  Thankfully we keep our medicine cabinet stocked.  It was the quick thinking of my husband to properly and safely medicate him that got his fever to come down.

    I make them a “nest” on the sofa with pillows and blankets. Cool towel on their head…dim the lights and watch a movie or listen to music.
