For Phebe, Boxing Day morning started out with a common cold, which included a runny nose and plenty of sneezes. She and her sister had a few horsey rides (on Baba's legs!)and entertained themselves with a little fishing game and a few other toys! Then, the "common cold" spiked into a nasty 40.5°C fever. I've never had to care for a child with fever before, so I was quite worried to say the least. Let's just say, this was my scariest moment of parenting yet! I consulted with Dr Google - I know, not the best idea, but it was Boxing Day! I tell you it took quite a while to get that fever lowered. With medication and cool cloths, we could only get it down to 39°C. And this morning it was pretty similiar, she wasn't too hungry either and what she did eat, her little belly rejected. But by late afternoon, today, she seemed to take a little turn for the better - she picked up a little energy, found and donned her sunglasses and made being a sickie, look rather cool! According to Phebe's referral paperwork, a fever is something she deals with on a fairly regular basis. Phew. I have my fingers and toes crossed that it'll be quite a while before she gets another.
