Fever

by kelly

So much for cyberspace karma.  My last post was about how well we were all sleeping through the night, and no sooner did I post it than things changed for us.

Wednesday night, at home, we noticed that Emma was not only tired (rubbing her eyes before 6:00 p.m.), but warm.

Thursday and Friday, she had very high temperatures – in the 102-104 range.  This freaked me out a bit, but I’ve since learned that kids this age can run fevers this high without it being as alarming as if an adult’s temperature were that high.

Still, she missed two days as preschool, we had to cancel a much-anticipated evening play date, and we got her in to see the Doctor.  His prognosis – just a virus…

She’s doing better now, but we’re all a little tired from the experience (the extra care and some night-time wake-ups, including one throw-up event in her bed at 3:30 a.m.; let’s hear it for waterproof matress liners!!!).

We’re all on the mend now, though (knock on the Internet).
