So, things with Shelby have been going pretty well. But, Saturday afternoon when I came home from work she looked awful. She said she felt awful, but nowhere specific. She said she was o.k. enough to go to the pumpkin patch with me and Riley. We went; we had fun; she seemed alright. Then we got home and she wanted to just rest. I took her temp and it was in the 100-degree range. We called the on-call GI (Dr. Sheila) and she said she would do a direct admit. We were really torn on taking her in. She said she was hungry and ate some supper. Then she showered and her temp seemed to come down a bit, but before bed she looked like a ghost. We still waited on taking her in. She slept fine.
She woke up today and ran a really low-grade temp, but ate great and played up a storm. Again we decided to hold off on doing anything. She's excited at the thought of going back to school tomorrow. Let's pray that we made the right decision to not have her looked at and that she has a GREAT day tomorrow.
Avery is hive-free, but she' s also now on Zyrtec 2 times a day and not having anything with (cow) milk in it. She seems to have caught Riley's cold, but isn't coughing as much as she was. Let's hope that stays that way, too.
Here's to a calm, calm week. We need one.
