After a very long, messy and sleepless night, The Muffin seems to be feeling better. Her fever broke a little after 8:00 this morning and she was able to eat cheese and crackers and drink apple juice without getting sick.
We had a very long night. Muff & I slept until a little after midnight. I heard her crying and went to her room to find her "spitting up", as she calls it. Big Daddy and I cleaned her up, changed her bed and I started a load of laundry. Her fever was still up, so Big Daddy went to W.algreen's to get M.otrin. We had tried it before when ibuprofen wouldn't work. She had a popsicile and then we all went back to sleep around 2:00. I checked on her several times and then she woke up around 7:00 feeling bad and very feverish. Her temperature had risen another degree, she had more M.otrin and we moved our little pajama party to the living room. She got sick (in the trash can!!!) and then her fever broke and she started feeling great!
Muff wanted to go to church, but doesn't "want to make her friends sick", so she agreed to watch her favorite movie with Big Daddy. I had to come upstairs to get away from the music. I think my ears will fall of if I hear "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" one more time!
Even though I know a fever and "spitting up" isn't all that serious it's so hard to be helpless when it comes to your child. It takes me back to the day that she was born and I knew there was nothing I could do. Once again, please remember the Stamp family in your prayers. I'm sure they feel helpless right now as they deal with Haper's illness.
