Fevah in the Evening

Holy crap, I can see how Benjamin's fever spiked so fast his body literally went into shock. Aida went from having a low grade fever to having one of 103 in about 30 minutes.

I quickly took off a lot of her clothes, only let her be half covered with a blanket and Eduardo put an ice-patch on her head. That combined with Ibuprofen got it down to 102.2 where it is now.

She doesn't even want me to read Harry Potter I to her (earlier this week we started reading book I to Pablo.) If she is too sick for Harry she is feeling really crappy.

I think Pablo is a ticking virus bomb....

Yikes.. I hope Aida is doing better. Seems like you guys have it going around. We had a similar thing in January...and it lasted about a week. Keep lots of fluids in her. Not sure if this will help, but Peppermint tea is the healing fluid for flu's and fever's in this house. We have it with a bit of soy milk and honey...Get better soon..
