17 month old fella spent the last couple nights onboard. My son called 2 nights ago reporting the mild cough and sneezing had progressed to fever. 101degrees. Grandma took over.
They slept on the settee and I did my best to monitor
his temp. He didn't like me using the ear thermometer while he was sleeping or even touching his face.
The next morning I ran to Home Depot and picked up and inexpensive IR gun and Motrin from the pharmacy.
I've heard the laser can damage a retina so I turn it off and check his forehead. Temps varied from normal to 101 yesterday.
The baby has been blowing a harmonica for a while. His dad and I play and he insists on blowing a harp whenever we do. He's a lot of fun at jam sessions.
I slipped in to ck on them before dawn this morning and could feel the heat coming from the soles of the boys feet. 103 degrees.
Sponge baths and a few minutes soaking in the galley
sink and an hour later and the boy is dancing and singing to Ray Charles doing "What I Say" on the seat cushion.
The mamas think it's a combination teething and head
cold. I just blow the harp quietly and do what I'm told.
