Poor Sister...again!

I have decided that when Malachi gets a virus or something going around, he develops a rash from it, but when Sapphira gets the same virus, she gets a fever. It is so weird to me that two kids in the same house can react to differently to the same germ...incredible how the Lord made our bodies work! Anyways...I digress...on Thursday, Sapphira woke up with a fever. We didn't think too much of it since she is working on all four molars at the moment! By afternoon she was tugging on her ears and continued to do so on Friday morning, so we took her in to be checked. Doctor thought her ears were fine and that her lungs sounded good, but that her throat was a little red. That trouble paired with runny nose, and hiney trouble made him think it was a virus going around...Tylenol and plenty of fluids. Poor girl feel asleep at 4 pm (there was no keeping her awake!!) and was snoring like crazy, so I though she might be out for the such luck!! She was up around 7:30 and then didn't go to sleep again until midnight. That wouldn't be so bad if she hadn't woken up around 2 ready to play. I tried in vain to get her back to sleep and finally just gave in and let her play. I woke Samuel up at 5 and said "your turn!! I need some sleep!" She was in bed again at 6 am and was not feeling too hot again went she woke up at 9 this morning. Poor thing! We've been keeping her on Tylenol and Ibuprofen and she's been doing better off and on. We gave her half of a dose of Benedryl tonight so she gets plenty of sleep. Hopefully this will be over with pretty soon!
