Is Luke getting better? (Check out my previous post if you have no idea what I'm talking about). We think so; however, he's not out of the woods yet.
This morning (Monday), Luke woke up with a 101 temperature. But, he had slept through the night. So, that 101 degree temperature was after 12 hours with NO Tylenol.
After giving him some Tylenol at that point, I was VERY excited for a normal temperature about an hour later.
At that point, I said, "Luke, we're going for a mini outing. I might go nuts if we don't."
So, I loaded up Luke in the TB (Trail Blazer)....I think Luke also was excited to get out. Here are some photos of him merely backing out of the driveway. I don't think he's been in the TB since last Thursday.
We ended up here....just for me.
Since I'm not sure if Luke's "contagiousness" is gone yet, I opted for the Sonic drive-in. I know summer's gone, but a Cranberry Limeade still tasted good even on this crisp fall Kansas day.
Since that definitely didn't take long enough for an outing, we took a "leaf tour" throughout our town.
We're far enough south that the leaves are really pretty right now. They're just starting to fall off, and so, there are quite a few to look at.
I'm sorry to say, though, that I didn't take any photos (kind of sad, I know).
After getting back home, Luke's temperature remained normal.
Also, his appetite had come back. So, mealtime wasn't too bad anymore.
Luke did take a very long nap after lunch (which tells me he's still fighting something). However, after his nap, since we hadn't taken a walk in quite a while, I did take him out in the stroller BRIEFLY. We didn't go our normal distance. We just did a nice easy walk.
It felt sooooo good for both of us.
I was gone this evening for a bit, and so, Luke was home with Marc.
Marc reported to me that Luke was very content playing this evening. HOWEVER, when Marc was getting him ready for bed, Luke felt warm. Marc took his temperature. He once again had a fever. This time, however, it was only 100.1.
In answer to the blogpost question -- Luke is getting better very slowly. This "Junk" just drags on, though, and everybody seems to be telling me that.
Tomorrow (Tuesday), I'll once again plan on "taking it easy" with Luke. And we will once again stay out of public places.
