Journal Entry – 018

Today was the first time that we were able to leave Davin in the room, while he played and watched CARS 3. Usually he would always want my wife or myself in the room with him while he plays.

Davin is not feeling well this morning. He has a 102F fever and has vomited twice, first at around 5:35 AM and then again while I was on my way to work. Wifey is staying home to watch him today. He did feel a little warm last night, but he was so playful and energetic that we didn't think he was sick.


Disney owns the ABC Network. Jeez Disney seems to own everything nowadays.


Allen Edmonds Strands are beautiful looking oxfords.


I've stopped taking afternoon walks at work because my dress shoes are worn out. I need to start bringing sneakers to use for walking. (The tip I read online is that, any walk that takes longer than 10 minutes, should not be done with your dress shoes.) If you have to take walks longer than 10 minutes in your dress shoes, then consider buying dress shoes that can be resoled.


I took the day off yesterday to help the wife watch Davin who was still very sick. His fever did not drop below 101F the whole day. It was actually hovering above 102F, which was very concerning. Giving him Tylenol barely lowered his fever. He was weak and didn't really want to eat or drink.

We took Davin to the doctor at 4 PM in the afternoon. Nurse Nancy examined him. Apparently his throat was really red and it turned out that he has strep throat. He was prescribed some antibiotics. His fever did eventually drop to 100F for the rest of the day.

Out of all the thermometers we have, Davin seems to be the most at ease with the new ear thermometer I bought.


The new Field Notes notebooks that I bought have already proven to be useful. We have one in our room that I use for writing down whatever I want. It is mostly used as a gaming journal, but we have been using it to track Davin's temperature and medicine dosage. It is turning out to be a very helpful tool for note taking.


Davin no longer had fever but was pretty cranky the whole night. Wife said he probably woke up from a bad dream. His mood did improve towards the end of the night.
