my daughters first cold
My daughter has been fighting a cold for over a week now. She first was running a fever of 101.5 F and I gave her some Tylenol so the temperature would drop. Three hours later it had spiked up to 103.2 F and I stuck her in a bath of warm water. It did not work because 30 min. later her temp was 103.5 F. My husband and I rushed her to the emergency room and they determined that she did have some sort of infection and her temp went down to 100.9 F. I took her to her pediatrician's in the morning and they said they thought she had a virus. She was fussy and would not eat solid food for a few days. We gave her lots of fluids and TLC. She is doing better but still a little congested. This was her first illness since her meningitis and we are first time parents so we do freak out a bit. Our daughter is going to have a MRI and blood work on the 3rd of next month to see if there are any problems from her meningitis. Please pray that the test come back negative and she is a normal baby. If anyone who reads this blog needs prayer or needs someone to talk to, just let me know. The Lord has done so much for me and my family.When my daughter had menigitis he gave us courage and up lifted us. Please give me feed back on my blog and how to make it better.
