High Temp Sicky

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

My sweet little girl came down with an underarm temperature of 103.1 today. Which is bad. But because the underarm temp is always a little lower, you're supposed to add a degree.. an entire degree (we knew this from her days in the hospital but still.. that's alot!) which means her temp was 104.1!! YIKES. Clint and I rushed her to the Dr. today where we sent off a strep test, a urine test, and also a little blood work. We've ruled out the common flus/sickness going around right now and it's either strep, a urinary tract infection, and if it's not either of those - we go in for more tests tomorrow. She won't eat anything except for Puffy Cheetos.. I figure it's better than nothing. :( She is downing her juice like crazy so I'm not too worried about her fluid intake. I just hope she feels better tomorrow.

She's not a happy girl tonight.

Get better Darbi.... Reese had a 104- 105 temp this winter for a week, she was miserable, but just had to fight a bug....so maybe this will be the same for her!!! Hopefully.. a temp that high scares the crap out of ya!! Feel better D!
