Poor, sick Mary
Yesterday afternoon Mary woke up from her nap, but didn't want to get out bed, which is not out of the ordinary. I finally got her out to go to the bathroom. Then I gave her a hug and she was quite warm, so I took her temperature. It was almost 102! So I gave her some motrin, put her back in bed. She watched a movie and read books. At supper she ate just a few bites of bread and a pickle. Afterwards, she rode her tricycle and was feeling good. Then at 2am she was screaming/crying. She had gone to the bathroom, but unable to get her pants back on. While helping her I felt that she was burning up. I took her temperature...103.3 under the arm!! We gave her more motrin and put her in a cool bath. At 2:30 her temp was down to 102.2. Everyone went back to bed. At 7am she woke up and we took her temp again, 102.9. William stayed home and took her to the doctor. Strep and flu tests came back negative. Probably just a virus that needs to run it's course. This aftenoon the temp was 101 after meds had worn off. She has been watching TV, resting, and readng books.
