Just on time for the official start of summer, the warm weather returned to
For both Kerstin and Markus Saturday evening was highly anticipated date as Kerstin has planned a girls’ night out for months and Markus was invited to a special 40th birthday party of one of his former colleagues who is now working in Moscow. As Jakob has developed over the past weeks to a more “user friendly” boy and now could be calmed down during the night also by someone else than Kerstin, we did dare to stick to the plans and follow the invitations as Viki & Stefan volunteered to do the babysitting.
Come Saturday afternoon and the build-up to the evening out we realised that Jakob was quite hot which we initially believed was caused by the hot weather, but when checking his temperature we were quite shocked as the clinical thermometer showed 39,8 degrees. As Jakob was eating & drinking well and also was still quite active and smiling (though he was falling over often) we treated him with antipyretic medicine and calf packing. As a consequence of Jakob’s Saturday Night Fever Kerstin was very disappointed that she missed the girls’ night (while Markus did join the birthday party until shortly after midnight), but it was quite clear that our junior did need his mom. Jakob’s situation did not really improve throughout Sunday – he even reached 40,3 degrees Sunday afternoon – and so Monday morning he will see the doctor and we hopefully find out what the problem is and even more important what to do against it. Fingers crossed.
Jakob, Kerstin & Markus
