The "F" Word

The "F" word in our house is fever. We are constantly on the watch for a fever with Tyler because it signals infection. If his fever hits 101, we are automatically eligible for a "vacation" at Hotel Strong, (aka Strong Memorial Hospital.)

Last night Tyler and I sat up most of the night together while I prayed his fever wouldn't hit the magic number. Thankfully he stayed around 99.8 throughout the night and he is down again this morning. Whew! All I can say is thank goodness for our forehead thermometer. That thing is a true lifesaver and well worth the money. 

Tyler is neutropenic right now, (very, very low white blood count,) so we're laying low and hanging out at home. Please say a little prayer that we can avoid a Strong "vacation." Seriously not our idea of a good time!

Praying for Tyler! The strongest boy i know!!! (what a coincidence, the hosp is called strong, because it's only for strong kiddos!:)Where did u find the forehead thermometers? I was searching one day and thought they didnt make them anymore.
