On the way to the kid’s UTC DS had a febrile seizure (#4). This was our first time going to this place, and they were beyond awesome.
He was still having the seizure when we got there, but starting coming around a few minutes later. At the time his temp was 102.5, and when we started checking out it was 103.6! 😯
He doesn’t respond well to Tylenol. His fevers laugh at it and keep on climbing. The nurse gave him a dose of Motrin, and within 15 minutes his temperature starting falling.
When he gets fevers like this, we can’t go more than 5 minutes past the time his next does of Motrin is due, or his fever shoots up. It was 30 minutes past when his temp rose to 103. They were kind of surprised it was that high because he was looking and acting so much better than when we first got there.
They did do a quick strep swab, and it came back negative. One thing the UTC Doctor recommended was getting him a Ped EEG just to cover all our bases. Since he had the CAT scan and spinal tap the last time he had seizures, it makes sense to rule out any other potential issues.
Hopefully we’ll have a quite rest of the week.
