one sick baby!
we woke up this morning to quite the surprise... averi was running a fever of 102.6 and had vomited all over her bed and herself during the night... she was a mess... poor baby! After calling her pediatrician he said to bring her in, of course they said it is just a bug and to let it run its course. Told me to watch for signs of dehydration, give her Tylenol and try to get her to DRINK!!!! She has done nothing but sleep all cozy on my chest all day and when she has been awake i have been battling her to drink something- needless to say she is less then interested! I did manage to get one full sippy cup down her the last few hours before bed and several ice cubes... she threw up again this evening but it was only a small amount, nothing like what I found this morning! I am about to head to work so Kevin is on major dad duties tonight- I'm praying she sleeps soundly and feels better in the morning- nothing breaks my heart more then knowing she is sick, especially when I can't be here to hold her!
