Four VERY LONG nights!

What started out to be a normal Friday (yay.....the weekend) and being totally excited that we're going to have great weather and a fun filled time then..........Friday Kennedy got REALLY sick! It started around midnight! We put her to bed like normal and she woke up around midnight burning up with a 102 fever! She woke up every 30 minutes after that! She was a VERY sick little girl! So, Saturday we had to head the doctor! When we got there her fever was 102.9......it was really high! She ended up having the croup!! YUCK right? Poor thing everytime she coughed she would cry! It was so sad! The doctor told me it would probably be a couple more sleepless nights but by the 2nd night it should get better! They ended up giving her a shot and we were on our way...........(after she threw up all in the lobby!! All over me, her and the floor!)
Sataruday night came around and we tried just letting her sleep in the bed with us (I know you should never do that but when she's sick we do allow it!) but her fever was still so high would toss and turn so much that we NONE could get comfortable! So, this is what we resorted to!!!

Camping out in the living room!!! It worked out much better except for my back.....it doesn't think so!

Sunday she acted a little better. The fever was down to 101.4. Much better than 102. We decided to go grab some dinner and see how she done!

Yep, this is Cracker Barrel! You can't beat the fun, family atmoshpere! She acted fine, much better actually.


Sunday night she started feelng bad again! Her fever had went up again 102 AGAIN!

First thing Monday morning I call the doctor.......again (and you know how they kinda make you feel ......like your being over protective and just stupid for calling??!!) well they did want to see her again because of the high fever!

They come to the conclusion she had a viral infection! Meaning there is NOTHING they can do or give her! Just "let it run its course!" The famous words of a doctor you hate to hear!....lol! Headed home again with NO real answers I feel like! I just feel like a viral infection is something they tell us they have because they can't figure out what's going on so they say "yep, viral again!!!" It kinda ticks me off!

Anyways, we had 2 more rough nights and finally last night we got A LITTLE sleep!

Let me add real quick her daddy dressed her for bed lastnight......see how the prints match REAL good....lol! Anyways, I hope she's on the road to recovery! We had 4 VERY LONG nights!

Poor baby! Hope she is feeling better soon and you all catch up on your rest. Nothing like having a sick baby. Carter was sick the first week we had Tucker home and it was rough.

Sending well wishes to little Kennedy!!!

Poor baby! You hate it when they get sick like that because you cant really do anything to help them. Hope she gets back to 100% soon!

Poor thing! She looks very happy at Cracker Barrel and you both look so pretty, too! I love that place!

She sleeps so funny! They say you can read a personality by how a person sleeps. Does this mean she is very laid-back and relaxed person?

MiMi said...

Awww....bless her! I hope she is feeling much better. Those high temps are so scary, aren't they? I hate it when a little one is so sick like that. The good thing is that they usually "bounce back" pretty fast, too.

Hope you all get a good night's rest tonight, and, BTW...she's adorable whether her prints match or not!

Poor little thing...I can totally relate about how HARD it is when your baby is sick..and then sick again and you feel they will never get better. You can tell she was so comfortable in that last picture!
