Tonight ...

Things already seem a little bit better but no holding my breath here, I am well aware of the wicked way bacteria and viruses take hold of Lucy's little body, they like it in there. She was miserable all day. My parents were with her a lot of the day and the evening too. I took her to the doctor and saw her between appointments and events. Right now it's 10:30 pm and the girl is still awake in her room but her fever is down and she's been eating and drinking this evening. I'll still set my alarm and check on her when her motrin wears off as I don't want the fever to set in so solid. I hope she's on the mend. The doctor is really pushing having her tonsils out soon as well as "re"removal of those amazing regrowing adenoids. She (the pediatrician) was shocked at how huge Lucy's tonsils were. She is on antibiotics starting today. I made an ENT appointment for the end of February. Well wishes and prayers are always very welcome, thanks so much for everyone's concern.

I'm glad there's at least a little improvement. Hang in there, Lucy & Mama!

I'm happy to hear she's feeling a bit better. Hope all goes well with the ENT; I, too, had my adenoids removed twice as a child. I hope you and Lucy get some sleep!!

Ugh, the tonsils. I would want the doctor to tell you why, why, why it's so important to have them out because it is a brutal surgery. Carver had it and I still have not recovered. If it has to be done, then so be it :), but do lots of research--as I know you will. I'm glad she's a bit better.

Kiss her little forehead for me.
As for you, I'm sending you a (("Mommy-Hang-In-There")) hug!

I'm glad Lucy is feeling better. It's so hard to see them so sick...especially when they are small like Lucy!
