We had a great evening last night, just the two of us, which consisted of diaper change, getting peed on, which led to a sponge bath and lotion application. When I applied lotion to his kneecaps he moved his legs as if he were ticklish and when I tickled his thighs he moved his feet. It was totally cute. Then I rocked him for a couple hours while he slept. I loved it! However, at midnight his heart rate slowly kept creeping up and up (highest I saw was 202) despite appearing to be asleep. The nurse took his temperature and it was 39.9 (103.8). She called the resident and they said give alternating doses of Tylenol and Motrin and they would assess him in the morning. So something is up with my little guy. He no longer has his cold symptoms that he had before (nasal congestion) so I’m not sure if this is a continuation or something new. Fever usually indicates some sort of infection. The nurse said they would probably test his blood, urine and possibly another X-ray of his chest. I’ll keep you posted as I find out.
(I was told before sugery that and an unexplained fever could be an indication of shunt problems so I hope we find a reason for the fever)
