My poor baby girl. I was putting her to bed the other evening and she felt a little warm. 102 temp. Ah! My first fever experience with my baby! So naturally I called the nurse every 4 hours asking what I needed to do, plus gave regular updates on Facebook to get input from other moms. I feel a little ridiculous. Hopefully I’ll be more pro next time around. The highest her fever got was 103.6 in the Dr. office. I was so thankful we were there. They told me the typical stuff for fevers and sent us home.
As much as I hate seeing my baby girl suffer, I couldn’t help having a little part of me loving how much she was in cuddle mode. We almost cuddled on my bed ALL DAY watching Baby Einstein and chick flicks. I got her oyster crackers and Gatorade and I had my Thai food. We picnicked on grandmas quilt she made for Samantha while we ate on my bed. As of now she still has a fever, but it’s in the 100 range and she’s peppy enough to roam and play a little.
I’m praying she gets better very soon, but maybe remembers how much fun it was to cuddle with momma and possibly do it again…wishful thinking.
