Joey has had a fever for 2 days.  Today it's 103!  She's so pathetic.  Her eyes are all glassy, she isn't eating like normal.  I just want to make her feel better.  It's 7:30 and she's already down for a nap.  This afternoon is my cousin's graduation party, so we'll see if that happens.  Thank God for Motrin!  It's hard having twins when one/or both is sick.

Have you done the lukewarm bath and tried alternating the motrin with tylenol?  You can do that every 4 to 6 hours and it really helps!  Be sure to give her plenty to drink!!  Popsicles help too!

 

Just a grandma sending some concern & love!  ;-)

I am sure you know what to do. I loved having cool washcloths put on my forehead as a child when I had a fever. I do hope that she gets to feeling better soon. You wouldn't want to get anyone else sick taking her places. It is hard to miss special moments of family and friends. Maybe you could find someone to watch her so you could go....Evertime one of my twins was sick, the other was sick 2 days later.

Oh, poor sweetie!  Is it just a virus or does she have an ear infection or anything?  Poor thing!  Motrin works awesome.  For my kids it works better than tylenol.  I know what you mean about taking care of little ones when they are sick. It's hard enough taking care of kids when they are well.  It's 10 times harder when they are sick!  Keep her hydrated and hope she feels better soon!
