Stuperman - Logan, my three year old son has been acting a bit odd for the past few weeks.
Six weeks ago he started getting fevers, three or four a week, they were accompanied with a headache.
A children's Tylenol had him back to normal in a matter of hours. No worries, just a summer bug. (Ha! I made a funny. Oh wait. Keep reading then come back and giggle with me!)
Then he started drinking. And drinking more. Unfortunately he can't open beer bottles on his own so I was always up and down and up and down getting him glass upon glass upon glass of water.
You have no idea how much water I am talking about. The kid was always thirsty.
Being inherently lazy, this annoyed me rather than concerned me. Then I complained to my Granny who told me I had to take Logan in for a blood test. Diabetes runs rampant in our family.
Logan scored a four on the finger poke - which is good. And something called hemoglobin(sp?) was 128 - which is perfect. So. No diabetes. (yay!)
Still the doctor wanted to know why he has been getting fevers and headaches, and of course all those glasses of water, so Logan had blood drawn -
Now. I will preface this with a He Will Be Fine. He is a healthy three year old with no auto immunity disorders. (Whatever those are, the doctor said those words and they sound all high tech and smart so I wanted to use them too! I suppose now I've ruined the looking SMRT part, eh?)
Logan has West Nile Virus.
