sleepless night

Last night Tobiah had a slight fever just before bed(our thermometer was not working, so no precise temp.). Woke up kind of restless around midnight, then again at 3:30... this time burning up! We gave him Tylenol and snuggled, I dozed off and the woke at 4 to find him staring wide eyed and starting to tremble all over. He has not responsive and was having irregular breathing. His skin paled and his lips turned kind of blue. You would think being a nurse I would have been a little more level headed, but it seemed that all my medical expertise went right out the window when my baby started having a febrile seizure. Thank the Lord for a calm husband and praying Grandparents! Tobiah had his first trip to the ER, was not happy with their method of taking temperatures but with a little extra Motrin got his temp back down. He's fine, we'll just be keeping an eye on him and be praying that this respiratory virus doesn't cause any more trouble!

...At least somebody gets to get a little rest! I stayed awake to make it to a meeting this morning at 6am only to find out when I got there, that it was canceled and changed to 2 pm. So, no nap today either! Oh well! time to go do laundry and start homeschool.

"Praise be to the Lord for He has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song." Ps 28:6,7


  1. Oh goodness! That would be scary! I'm glad he's okay and hope you can go to bed early tonight... :)
    We did not enjoy the trip to the ER on Christmas night due to Cory's high fever, but his never got that bad. And I'm a little worried that we still haven't seen the bill...

  2. oh wow, my youngest has a terrible time with feavers. No fun!
