My 8 yr old had a bad cold last week. All of his symptoms seem to have cleared up a couple of days ago, but he slept all day yesterday, only getting up for a few minutes or an hour, a couple of times, then he slept all night, and now he's sleeping all day again today.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? He does not have a fever, any pain anywhere, or seemingly any other symptoms. It's starting to freak me out. If it was just yesterday I would think he's just recovering from the cold.
No, he actually was sleeping quite a bit extra during the cold. My husband took him to the ER, he has asthma, has been hospitalized for pneumonia, was hospitalized for RSV last year...so we like to be sure. Also his general dr. is closed today. They tested him for mono, we haven't gotten results yet, but they gave him IV fluids and he just woke up perky. I think he just got severely dehydrated by the bad cold he had last week.
