|Before we realized that she was really sick!|
I was off school the next day, so we had a whole day to be together. She seemed pretty happy, but when she woke up from her afternoon nap, she felt extremely warm, so I took her temp and it was 103.8. She didn't have any symptoms, but since it was the first time for a high fever, we called the doctor, who told us to bring her in the next morning. When we got to the doctor's office on Tuesday, she was acting completely normal and had no fever at all. Of course. The doctor could find nothing wrong and told us that it was most likely a fever virus. That night it spiked again and again the next day, as well. I was so torn between taking her back to the doctor for blood tests and just waiting it out a bit longer. On Wednesday afternoon, I talked to our wonderful Chiropractor and we decided to bring her in for an adjustment and wait one more night before taking her back to the doctor for further testing. We took her in around 5:00 to be adjusted and headed back home. As we were getting ready to put her to bed, Lucas prayed that God would cool our little girl down. Not ten minutes later, her fever broke!
|Keeping our little girl comfortable|
Although I hated to see my little girl miserable and it was difficult for both of us, it was so nice to be able to be there with her and snuggle with her when she needed me. I am so thankful and aware of how blessed we are to have such a healthy baby. I thank God every day for the blessing of Emily and for her good health!
