Update on Elizabeth

Took Eli into the doctors this morning and found out that she has a sinus infection as well as an infection in her left ear. They put her on a 10 day round of antibiotics & gave us some numbing drops for her ear. Doctor said her lungs sounded clear and her throat looked good, so I am thankful we're not dealing with something super contagious like strep or serious like pneumonia.
The receptionist at the doctor's office handed me a mask for Elizabeth and at first I thought there was no way I could get her to wear it, (there was no way any of my boys would have ever worn it) but I figured I'd give it a try. She kept it on the whole time we waited in the front room (about 15-20 min) and didn't take it off until the nurse was checking her vitals back in the exam room. I love having a little girl! =D

Just When I Thought We Were All Well....

Elizabeth has come down with another fever! Yesterday she fell asleep while I made a trip to the grocery store, didn't wake when I put her into the shopping cart, didn't wake when I put her back into the car and didn't wake when we came back home. She slept from about 5:30pm until 10:30pm. I took her to bed and she slept most of the night, only waking when she needed her fever meds.
Last Night
She's not her usual energetic self, but we're getting in lots of snuggles, so it's OK. She's loving her new "horsie" (unicorn pillowpet pictured above), Thanks again Shandi! 

Still really sleepy today, just lounging and getting lots of fluids into her. You can tell she's a little better today because she tried to smile for this one. LOL! I need to get a new thermometer, but I am positive that her fever is well over 100 degrees. I am thankful that so far there has been no vomiting with this flu bug, (that was no fun last month) but can't wait for her to be feeling better.Until then we'll be snuggling here watching all this beautiful snow coming down outside... Now if it would only start sticking!

Not so little Miss Elizabeth

Just got home from a check up for Elizabeth and she is weighing in at 37lbs and is 38" tall. Pretty good sized for a 2 1/2 year old. LOL!
