I am really mad at myself for not trusting my instincts. Austin is sick now and I instinctually knew he was and didn't trust myself. he has been really warm yesterday and today and tonight, when I was at my house (we are staying at my parents') painting, I had this thought like, I am not spending enough time with Austin, he is not getting the right care from me, I think he's getting sick and I'm not there for him! Well, I got home and my mom, dad, and dh were all like, Austin has a fever, we didn't know what to do, we gave him tylenol and put him to bed, you should take his temp, etc. Our phone is unplugged right now since they are doing the floors where the jacks are and I couldn't be reached.
Stupid!!! I knew he was hot today and he has been cranky for two days. I just thought it was the sudden spike in temperature and humidity. I know I shouldn't beat myself up, but he's upstairs fitfully sleeping/sweating and I feel like shit!!! I need to go and be with him. I don't know what to do, though for him? let him sleep?
