I hated having to make the phone call to Ron telling him that I was taking Kaitlyn to the ER. I wished he were here with us, but thankfully our first late night trip to urgent care wasn't too scary and Kaitlyn was such a trooper! She was miserable and cried "all done" every time someone came into the room, but she was so cooperative. She did everything they asked and even took her medicine without a fight. After negative results for an ear infection, the flu and strep we were sent home and told it was just a virus that needed to run its course.
This morning, the fever was gone! We spent the day inside resting, recuperating and staying dry. I decided to take out the camera to document the day...
After our nap, Kaitlyn tried on some clothes. She's recently started going through random drawers of clothes and wearing everything she finds...all at the same time. What you can't see in the pictures below is that she was wearing one of Jonathan's onesies on her right leg.
We did some coloring and drawing. I showed her how to write her name and when I wrote the lowercase "t", she said "Jesus". We've taught her that Jesus is on the cross at church. :)
We watched some Sesame Street videos on You Tube.
Mommy "checked ears" (as Kaitlyn calls it) many times throughout the day and luckily, this was as high it got.
And since fevers require cooling off, we've had quite a few of these in the last two days.
We worked with flash cards.
And we read lots of books.
Despite the yucky weather outside and fighting off the yucky virus, we had a fun day. I'm pretty sure she'll be feeling even better tomorrow.
