I've found myself wishing for a little more excitement in my life, but I now take that back. On Saturday my sister Darci was supposed to watch Addison so Dave and I could go out, but she woke up at 3:30 that morning with a fever. We gave her some Tylenol and it seemed to bring it down fine. Saturday morning she acted fine until her fever came back. We tried medicine twice more during the day, but it didn't seem to touch the fever. Finally by that afternoon I was getting worried because she was so miserable. She moaned all day, would hardly eat or drink and couldn't sleep for more then 10 minutes at a time. We took her to urgent care where we waited for an hour and a half to be told to take her to the emergency room! I was pretty calm until about this point. We drove to the ER where the triage nurse was shocked the urgent care didn't give her anything to bring the temperature down. When they checked her in her temperature was 104.7. She was almost despondent by this time. They got her in pretty quick, gave her a ton of Tylenol and Ibuprofen and then a popsicle. Thank goodness that did the trick and within a few hours she was doing fine and wanting to explore the hospital. We are so grateful that she is ok. Next time I know that we need to try both Tylenol and Ibuprofen! That's enough "excitement" for this week.

That is very stressful! I am so glad she is doing ok. Do they know what it was? The poor little thing.
