So, OF COURSE, she spiked a fever less than 24 hours later. She ran a fever on and off all day Saturday and needed breathing treatments through the weekend. She got strangely spinny/wobbly on Saturday night with no obvious cause (glucose and ketones were fine, O2 sats seemed in her normal range), but on Sunday the fever was gone and she was making improvements. I kept her home Monday because she wasn't up to school yet, but she had been fever-free for 2 days. Then last night/this morning at 3am, she started shouting that she couldn't sleep, so I went to her room to give her the "It is the middle of the night, so you need to try to sleep a while longer." speech, but then she started coughing and it sounded terrible. I grabbed my stethoscope to give her a listen and when I touched her, I knew her fever was back. I verified that with the thermometer and then set her up with her nebulizer and cartoons. Needless to say, she stayed home today. Tomorrow, we have an appointment with the pediatrician to make sure her little URI hasn't made the leap to pneumonia.
****It isn't all yucky sickness around here, though...here are a few KayTar gems from the past few days:
You're welcome. ;)
