Sick again

Somehow, Porgie is sick again. I have no idea how she got sick - we have only left the house 1 time in a freaking month. But, nonetheless, she is sick again.

It all started Saturday night. John was giving her a bath, and she started shaking. He thought she was cold, so he got her out of the water. Porgie continued to shiver and shake for about 15 minutes. When the shaking subsided, I sat down to read her a few stories before bed. Porgie rested her little head against my chest, and I could tell she was hot. She had a temperature of 100 degrees. I gave her some Tylenol and put her to bed.

The next morning, Porgie woke up with a fever of 102. Her temperature stayed high for most of the day, and she refused to eat anything. Also, she was quite miserable. She walked around crying for the majority of the day.

On Monday, Porgie woke up with a fever, refused to eat, and continued to cry all morning. John took her to the doctor's office, and they said she merely had a sore throat. For the rest of the day, Porgie cried and cried and cried. She was so sad and miserable.

On Tuesday, Porgie woke up screaming. About 15 minutes after she woke up, she curled up on the floor and sucked her thumb. I picked her up and held her. She fell asleep on my lap - which NEVER happens. I knew she was really, really ill. Porgie spent the rest of Christmas vomiting and crying.

This morning, Porgie woke up crying again. I thought we were going to have a repeat of yesterday, but I was wrong. In addition to her fever, loss of appetite, and fussiness, Porgie now has a rash on her face, stomach, and back.

Poor girl! Sounds like she's been through the ringer. That sucks that she was so sick on Christmas. Hope things get a bit better today!

OHHH! I'm sorry.
When Gage had mega-fever, he was refusing the medicine too. We had to use Tylenol suppositories. It was so awful, and you just feel helpless knowing that they are so miserable.

She doesn't sound too well, I hope she gets better soon! And I hope you start feeling better too!

Oh my goodness. That sounds horrible and scary because you don't know what it is. I guess she got some kind of stomach thing. Did you change her food at all?

See if she will drink some herbal chamomile or peppermint mixed with apple juice. It will cool her body off. Or get her some watermelon and make it into a juice.

Baby had a horrible, sick Christmas, too. She also was feeling so poorly she fell asleep in a lap (my husband's). Poor dear. I really hope it passes soon.

Poor thing! I thought it was rough w/ a teething baby (fussy & a little fever) on Christmas... I cant imagine going through that yet. I hope she's doing better! Thanks for the comments :-D

Don't ya just love the kids!! E always gets sick, which then means we get sick (usually way worse than what she had) and the cycle never ends. It seems like I have been sick non-stop since October!!

I can't wait for summer!

Ainsley sometimes gets a rash at the end of a virus and our doc told us the rash is the virus's way of leaving the body. That doesn't sound like good news, but it actually might mean you are almost out of the woods! :-)
