My sweet baby girl woke up at about 5 am whimpering. When she is sick, she sleeps with me...for this purpose. I reached over, and she was absolutely on fire. I didn't take her temp, but I'm sure it was at least 104. She was talking to herself, and beyond miserable. I got her a cool cloth for her forehead, and gave her motrin, AND tylenol, and a drink. I just prayed , and prayed, it would bring her fever down. We fell back to sleep, and woke up about 45 minutes later, and she said, "Mommy, I'm sweaty!" YAY!!!! So we took off her jammie top, and went back to sleep.
I got up later and was out of the bedroom talking to daddy, when I heard her coughing. I ran back in, and there she was...sitting up, smiling, with PINK cheeks, and said, "Hi Mom!!" Oh my heck, I almost cried! She has totally turned the corner, after ONE dose of the new meds! She is still sick, but SO much better!!
I am feeling great. Sometimes I feel bad telling people I have pneumonia. Just a gross cough still, being VERY productive- if you know what I mean.
Both boys stayed home from school. *sigh* They are just stuffed up, so I'm pumping them up with vitamins, and airborne.
