So Emma is running a temp. *sigh* She woke up in the middle of the night, ok, it was 6 am, but when you've gone to bed at 1 am, it sure feels like it.
Anyway... sore throat headache thing, I am a little worried, cuz this is the age Parker started getting strep every 6 weeks or so...till his tonsils came out, and hers...ARE HUGE! ...but the real reason I'm blogging about this is...
My ear thermometer, has been well used, and unfortunatly "played with". So it only reads in celsius. When she had her kidney infection, in the ER her temp was 40 something, and that alone shot her to the head of the line to be seen. And when Jack was in the nicu, I remember something about 36-37 being normal. So when it read 38.8, i knew is was high, plus she as hot. :)
Anyway, I just got on the computer to find out what it was exactly, and found this page. Cool, but when I read how to convert using math, instead of a computer formula, I laughed out loud. I'll share it with you, so you all can do it, when your computor is not handy!
°F to °C
Deduct 32, then multiply by 5, then divide by 9
°C to °F
Multiply by 9, then divide by 5, then add 32
Ya, my brain's gonna compute that when I have a sick kid in the middle of the night! haha
I just know 38, is "running a temp". We'll leave it at that.
