NOT a good sign.
Officially, he was at 101.8 degrees.
I gave him some ibuprofen and diluted juice and ran out the door to take #1 to school. DH stayed with the babies. Got home and noticed #4 was hot too!

Where was I?
Oh, yes, she came bearing gifts of infant motrin and Pedialite for the babies and for the stressed out mother still suffering from an annoying stiff neck and shoulder...appetizers and salad from The Crossing (the BEST Ranch dressing on the planet!) AND chocolate.
By the time this evening rolled around, #3 and #4 were pretty wasted (Fevers topped out at 102.8 and 101.5). #2 went home with said sister (Did I mention she was voted Yuma's Angel one year?), #4 passed out on Daddy's arm. #3 puttered with me, demanding I write an "A" on the paper.
