Sick child!

My poor baby!! I have a 2 1/2 year old with a fever!! Not sure what is wrong, he says nothing hurts, no cough, no runny nose, just not himself and had/has a 100.4 fever. I have given him tylenol and he's playing with his trains right now (that's a good sign) I, of course, called my husband and said... Should I cancel my surgery? It's on Thursday... He said NO, do not cancel... I'm going nuts here! Scared to death and excited about being out of pain for the first time in a LONG time.

Thanks for letting me vent!!

I know that it will be hard to not give all of those hugs and kisses, especially with a little one. Maybe if you just give kisses on the cheek, rather than on the lips, it will help to keep the bug from being passed. I also know that right now, you need all of the hugs and kisses that you can get! (and those little arms work wonders!) I have three myself and go in in the morning for my surgery. I am scared to death at this point, but like you, ready to be out of pain, as well as the fear of the unknown. I wish you the best with your upcoming journey!

It's hard to know in situation like this. My baby was 18mo. when I had surgery. He had just had surgery two weeks before. He luckly didn't start teething until the day I came home from hosp. I didn't eat that day so I had my sister take us to the dr. in the a.m.
They didn't know what to think my hobbling in there and my sister carring my baby. I'm like sorry just need to know he is o.k.

If he still has a temp in a.m. or it gets higher I take him in to the dr. to see what they think. It sounds like a minor problem that will clear soon, but who knows.

If it is something that is gone by a.m. than no need to worry during surgery. Otherwise, ask the dr. their opinion.

I'm by no means a doctor, but in my parental experience (Three kids ages 14, 11, 9) summer fevers with no other symptoms are usually viral. This means that the pediatrician will probably do nothing except reassure you. I would probably not postpone surgery, as rescheduling could be difficult (and there's no guarantee that you 2 1/2 year old won't get something else later). But you might want to call your doctor to discuss. He may not want YOU to get sick during your recovery. Hope all goes well!
