Our last fever was Saturday morning at 8 a.m. Annabelle had a great weekend!
Until this afternoon. It was a low grade fever, but she got a little irritable, her lungs were wetter, she was coughing more, her heart rate was up, she was breathing fast, and her little belly was retracting, all of which are not stellar signs.
She’s a little better now after Tylenol and extra diuretics, but I can tell she’s still not feeling her best. although she’s playing with her toys now, so that is a good sign!
There’s a possibility we will go downstairs to IR and get a new PICC line tomorrow… they got it working today after a while of working with it, but it’s always been sluggish, so if they have any issues with it this evening or overnight, we will get a new one tomorrow. We are on the schedule just in case.
So yes, Annabelle needs some prayers tonight. This may just be something little that she gets over quickly, but every time I wonder… is this the time she gets worse and won’t get better? I know… I’m supposed to be optimistic. I’m not supposed to fear or worry. I’m trying, I’m praying. But I’m not perfect either, and the thoughts do come.
GEEZ I sound depressing today! I feel like we need to play a rousing game of duck-duck-goose or something to get some giggles going.
GOOSE! You’re it!
Ohhh, yes, let’s play a game! In the spirit of making people smile (because laughter IS good medicine…) if you’re game, put something fun, good, positive, or silly in the comment section. I don’t care if it is a stupid joke, something funny that happened to you today, a praise, or whatever, just something HAPPY!
(as you can see from the picture below… Annabelle could use a little cheering up too!)
