Feeling Better

Lily's fever finally broke last night around 11:00 p.m. She woke up super sweaty, but not hot to the touch. We took her temperature and it was 97.something, which didn't seem right. So we took it again, and it was 98.1. I was so happy to see such an improvement! It had gone all the way up to 103.something yesterday afternoon, and that had me concerned.

I'm really glad the worst seems to be over. When I saw 103, I had flashbacks to roseola, but her symptoms were much different then - her fever started and remained high the whole time, and she acted tired but not miserable. Can you even get roseola twice?

Lily asleep in Ryan's arms at Bible study the night her really high roseola fever struck exactly one year ago. This picture was monumental...Lily never, ever, EVER falls asleep in someone's arms or while other things are going on. We took this picture with Ryan's cell phone as proof.
