A MUCH happier girl today!

Yesterday Alexandria woke up feeling warm to the touch, so I took her temperature and it was around 38C or so - a bit of a fever. She was up and down as far as her energy and mood. At lunch she wanted to go for a nap instead of eating - and she slept for about 3 hours. She was burning up when I felt her after her nap was done, so I took her temp again. 40C!! That's 104F. That's getting to the could-cause-a-febrile-seizure kind of temperature. I was a bit concerned by how high it was. I gave her some Tylenol, took her downstairs and gave her some popsicles. An hour later it had gone down to under 38C (around 101.5F). So, still a fever, but not nearly as concerning as it had been earlier. By the end of the day she was feeling pretty normal. Today her temp is fine and she's behaving like her old self again. I'm glad that was short-lived! Her daycare provider's 3 1/2 year old son had a fever on Tuesday and Wednesday when she was there (and her older son was feeling crappy yesterday, too), so I'm sure that's where she got it. Fran (the home daycare provider) felt sooooo bad, but hey, it happens. Could have just as easily been Alex getting her kids sick. I'm just hoping Zach doesn't get it. Fevers in infants are much more of a cause for concern. We'll see in a couple days.....

Glad to hear Alex is feeling better, Jacki! It was good to see you guys yesterday. Sorry we couldn't stay for longer! The new furniture is really nice and the house is really coming along. And you weren't kidding when you said you had a lot of movies ;).
