Sick week...

Let's see...this all began last Tuesday evening! Haylee went to bed not feeling well. Travis and I knew she felt warm so we gave her some motrin and put her to bed. When Haylee woke up the next day she had a fever of 102. For the next 4 days she consistently ran a fever. Her highest got up to 105 (yes that high!) and her lowest of the "five day viral infection" was 101. We took Haylee to the doctor on Thursday after running a fever of 104 on Wednesday night. Apparently this viral infection is going around. The doc said there wasn't anything you could do but wait it out.


Haylee was on tylenol and motrin around the clock. He also said that when her temperature spikes up high to put her in the bath tub and if her temp doesn't break right away to take her to the ER. That evening after going to the doctor her temp spiked up to 105. It is so scary! After getting a bath her temp had dropped 3 degrees. Friday morning when she got up she looked more miserable then she had the whole week. Her sinus' were all messed up. Saturday was the first day that her fever broke. However she was still feeling really bad.

Sick girl!


Meanwhile, Melissa (Haylee's Aunt) had to be admitted into the hospital for some complications from her pregnancy. She is 31 weeks along with our new little niece Kayelyn. So, Briley came over Saturday night and had a slumber party with us. We pulled out the fold out bed downstairs and watched The Little Mermaid. We all had a good time.

The next morning when we got up Travis and I decided that we needed to take Haylee to the Urgent Care Center before her sinus infection turned into Bronchitis again. The doctor we saw was really good. He told us we came in at the right time. Another day and she would have probably had fluid in her lungs. She got an antibiotic and something to help her with the coughing at night! :o) So we are hoping that we all get a good night sleep tonight.

All clean! (Sunday night)

We are looking forward to the next few days and having our little Haylee girl feeling well again. Oh yea...Haylee joined the "20 pound club" finally! :o)

We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Please keep Melissa and baby Kayelyn in your prayers. She needs to stay put for a few more weeks.
