Yep, so I’ve been sick and there went my blogging. I was sick for a solid week around Thanksgiving and well, you know how things go. Then Nova’s been sick. We had to go to get her out of daycare and take her to the Dr’s because she had a temp of 104 °F (technically 103.9 °F). So we’ve been trying to get that down all through Friday night and Saturday. It’s been down to 100, then back to 102, then up to 103.5. But it hasn’t crossed over into 104, so that’s good. The doctor said to take her straight to the ER if it hits 105.
This morning she actual ate something, the first since early Friday. Thank goodness she still breastfeeds, at least I know she’s getting her fluids. And it helps that she’s 22 lbs, I feel more confident that she can take it. But yes, it’s been tiring, I have been physically with her all day and during the nights, because I feel better if she sleeps with me. And she’s sporting a punk ‘do, as we keep wetting her head to keep the temp down (along with acetaminophen every 4 hours)
Temp this morning was 99.4, so we’re looking good so far.
Update: Nova hit 104.9 this afternoon after a nap. Back to acetaminophen, after a call to a nurse. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. Thinking Leif is staying at home with her.
