As some of you may know, Autumn was sick this past week.
While at work on Monday night I realized that Autumn felt extremely warm. I took her temperature and it was 102.6. I decided not to take her in that night and to see if maybe she would sleep it off. Tuesday morning she woke up with a fever of 102.3. I called and got her an appointment that morning. After looking her over, the Dr said he's 95% sure she had the flu. Apparently only 25% of kids who have the flu also have all the symptoms to go with it. He told me to alternate motrin and tylenol every 3 hours and to come back Wednesday morning if she still had a fever. Well, wednesday, she still had a fever. I took her back in and the Dr said it just looks like it was going to affect her a little longer than it affects most. Luckily, she went to bed Wednesday night and woke up Thursday morning without a fever! :)
Her energy has come back and so has her appetite. Now, she seems to have developed a cough. She's waking herself up at night but does good with putting herself back to sleep. She has a really runny nose as well. She is VERY happy to have daddy home after having him in the field for 2 weeks!
In happier news, Autumn now says 'up' whenever she wants you to pick her up or even put her down! She's doing great in 'school' with the other kids. She's doing all kinds of art projects and my walls are slowly becoming covered with them!
