Emma...

Is slowly starting to feel better. Her latest fever started Sunday evening and hit 105.9 on Monday and 105.7 on Tuesday. We went to the pediatrician Tuesday evening (where she fell asleep on the examining table (wish I'd had my camera) she was so worn out. We finally know what's wrong and hopefully there will be no more crazy high fevers in the future.

Mackenzie gets hives when she gets a virus, and we just thought Emma gets super high fevers with her viruses. They've been steadily getting higher since June when it was 103.5, 104.5 in September, 105 two weeks ago and now the nearly 106 mark. She's got some tests scheduled for later this month and I'm praying those come back normal. I'm ready for her to be healthy, acting like herself and to not have to miss preschool and playing with her friends. I feel so badly for her. Plus, I'm ready for me to not see 105 on the thermometer. It's a little scary. Makes you worry. Wish you could fix it all. But she did go to school today and even though her fever was up to 103.5 this afternoon, I think we're on the down-slope. (Oh, and in case you're wondering, she's not contagious or anything, even with the fever.)

These two pictures are from the Winter Wonderland at our fitness center on Sunday.

Here's Emma with her two best friends, Caroline and Bree. She loves them. (Lisa and I did not plan on the girls wearing matching shirts, by the way!)


And on, well, I'm not sure what you'd call it. It was a bouncy house without a roof, just low walls. This was major. Prior to this she refused to go in a bouncy house. We knew she'd love it if she'd try, but she was always afraid. Of course, doesn't help that this summer our neighbors had a small one in their backyard for Jack's birthday and Michael put Emma in it. She was okay, not loving it but not freaking out - until the hose came out and it started to deflate and the kids started yelling and trying to climb out while it collapsed around them. Not pretty. Sort of funny though, I'll be honest. Anyway. She saw Caroline in it and decided to try it and loved it! She got off and got right back in line two more times. Yay! This is very exciting, people!


And making a snowman last week. She really wanted to make one where we cut out the pieces and she glued them on. He's quite colorful: Pink arms, orange facial features, blue buttons with a yellow haunted house stuck on him.

Oh bless that baby! I hope she's better now. How scary.

There is a little girl in JB's class who gets super high fevers when she is sick. Something that would give JB a 101 would give this girl a 105. I will pray that the tests come back okay

My son had high fevers for years (from age 2-10). They were in the 105 range and even landed us in the hospital a few times with dehydration. We saw an ENT the last time in the hospital and one quick, not-routine test revealed a virus in his tonsils. Had them removed 2 years ago and he has been fever free ever since.
