|I'm sure he will be okay, but he has the following symptoms: (I'm so worried about the little guy---I hate to see him so sick).
Dry hacking cough
Temperature that fluctuates from 100.2 to 103.4
He is tired, weak and circles under the eyes.
The symptoms in the medical book I have says that it could be Whooping cough or Influenza. I also look on the net, but can't determine a good diagnosis.
I'll take him to the doctor if he isn't better by Monday.
I tend to lean toward Influenza since it is the heart of Flu season, but I don't know.
He is sleeping now. Before he went to sleep I gave him cough medicine and fever reducer, water and cold towel on this head/face/neck.
