I’ll be the first mom out there to admit, I haven’t a freakin’ clue what I’m doing.

Sasha woke up last night with another high fever—104F.

We’ve had just illness after illness: sinus infections, ear infections, and lately the dreaded Fevers of Unknown Origin.

I’m just waiting to hear what today’s is.

I’m beginning to wonder if there’s something wrong with him. Because of these we’ve had him tested for all kinds of things: immunoresponse, anemia, organ function, allergies….

But other than what we knew already (a few mild allergies) nothing.

I’m so tired and worried.

ETA: It's apparently another sinus infection. That doesn't negate my worry. Someone who's just one and supposedly healthy shouldn't be having so many of these.

Awwww. He's such a poor little guy! I think that some kids are just more likely to get sick than others, but what do I know? I'm new at this too.

Hope he feels better soon. Poor thing.

Poor thing. I understand your pain as well. Monkey can't seem to go for more than 2 weeks without something.

On the sinus infection front though, does Sash have GERD or had it in the past? It seems that babies and toddlers who have GERD are more prone to sinus infections so you might want to mention it to your doctor. Just a thought.

Hope he feels better!

I believe in intuition. Keep looking. My brother's two kids, who are both adopted from two different countries, seem to be sick all the time too, and I can't help but wonder if it's an indoor air kind of situation.

I hope your little one feels better!
