My poor baby

My poor little Alyssa is sick and was sick ALL weekend. She's been trying to get over a cold for a couple of weeks, but it was just a stuffy/runny nose (how you can have both has always made me wonder) and some slight coughing and sneezing. She started to get better and then, perhaps because our weather has so crazy, but now it has moved into her chest. She is so congested and feels so bad. Then on Saturday night, she started to try and run a fever, just 100.5 which, for Alyssa is slight. I gave her some Tylenol, and she was fine. All day on Sunday she was fine, kinda fussy, but no fever. Then last night, it jumps, pretty quickly to 101.5. I gave her some Tylenol and put her to bed.

Then she woke up around 4:15 this morning and the fever was either back or never really went away, it was 101.7. I gave her more Tylenol and fed her a bottle and just held her for a while. I put her back to bed and this morning around 8 when I got up to get Kaylie ready for school (I had already called and let my boss know I wouldn't be in until later) Alyssa still felt warm, but I didn't have time to take her temp again before leaving. We dropped Kaylie off and came home and Alyssa went straight back to sleep. She slept until I woke her at noon or so because I had to go to work and she was going to Chris's house. Her fever was 102 this time. My poor baby just feels awful. She didn't really eat much this morning. She just wants to sleep.

Hopefully she will get to feeling better soon. She is going to the doctor this afternoon and I hope its just a simple virus.

That's about it for me at the moment.

Sorry to hear about your poor babe. I always feel like I had a magic wand. I hope she feels better soon.

Poor baby--I know how hard it is to see your baby be sick and not be able to do much more than you've already done. I HATE seeing babies and children sick. Hope she's feeling better!!

I am taking Audrey to the doctor this afternoon as well. Same stuff as your daughter, and I bet it's an ear infection for mine. What fun.
