Update on Wesley
Last weekend we had a scare with Wesley. He was acting weird the night before. He really won't play after his nap. So checked his temp. It was at 100. We gave him medicine and put him to bed. He woke up at 10:00 with a very weird cry. When I went get him, he kept crying and he throw up (normal for Wes when he gets upset). But he was still upset. We took his temp and it as 99.6. We gave him more tylenol. It took 45 minutes to get him to bed. Finally he fell asleep with us. Well around 3:30. I feel a weird kick. I got up and turned on the light. He was having a seizure. (temp was 101.1) OMG scared the crap out of us. He was completely limp and crying afterwards. We called Frances to come over to watch the boys. We took Wes to River Parish. They took blood, urine, and x-rays. We was transfered to Our Lady of the Lake. From there another x-ray. the doctor said he is having Febrile seizures (fever seizure). Around this time some kids get these fever seizures. Wes' body gets them with really low grade fever. So we have to take his temp and make sure to give him tylenol anytime his temp is 99 or higher. He should grow out of them by age 4.
