We're Still Sick & Sleep deprived!


So our little peanut got a fever tonight...I picked her up after picking up the photos from the camera we left at the orphanage, thanks Jamie(oops the check is in the mail) and she felt hot. We have one of those cute talking thermometers you put on the forehead of your kid, Michael loves it! His read normal at 97.3 -YEAH and Phoebe's read 99.6! So just to check, good old nurse I used to be I whip out the rectal thermometer. Uh oh!!! 103.0 degrees! Tylenol and to bed she gets. Of course now I'm worried.
I hate having just a little knowledge and thinking of all the things that could go wrong but most likely won't...she's restless tonight and so is Momma. We're all supposed to get our family pics taken and her 6 months photos tomorrow...we shall see...

Gen, I haven't checked your blog in a couple of weeks. OMG!! Your kids are just adorable, especially together. I am so so so happy for you. Also, thanks for the "you make the world a better place" flower. I saw it and then forgot. I've been having a really tough time with our continued delays, and remembering it today made me smile. It's like a gift that keeps on giving.

I can't sleep tonight, worrying about little Missy over in Kyrgyzstan of course...Sorry to hear Phoebe has had a fever, hope she is better and that the family pictures and her 6 month pictures turned out well...I don't know how they couldn't you are an adorable family of 4!

Oh no!! Is she feeling better today? We've all had a hacking cough, which the pediatrician said was just allergies after looking at the kids. I may take Scarlett back tomorrow to see if it's something else. Alex seems to be better, but Darren is going to see a doctor too. Anyway, I'm so happy Michael is better, but I'll be praying for Little P!

Us nurses are the worst, aren't we? Alihan had something too--fever issues for only a day or so, but still has the cough and runny nose. It must just be the the right time of year! I hope you all feel better. That is miserable being the sick parent of sick kids.
