Week-long fever

Our little Alex has been running a fever for a week. He's been to the pediatrician twice but she think it's just a virus. He started with a nasty cough last week ("kindergarten cough" brought home by Sarah--big sisters like to share everything) but that's pretty much gone now. He's still running a temperature at about 100 which isn't outrageously high but a 7-week-old baby shouldn't be running a temperature at all.

I don't know how long his fever will last but I guess there's nothing to do in the meantime. We'll just keep waiting it out.

The good thing about going to the ped's office is that he gets to weigh in. He was up to 9 1/2 pounds on Monday so he's continuing to grow which is GREAT! We just need to keep our little buddy growing! I'll post a new pic soon.

I feel bad for him that he's running a fever! And you too, a sick newborn is never good or fun!

Hasn't Sarah learned, "Germs are not for sharing!"? I wish it were only that easy!

Hang in there and post a pic soon!
