What a weird last part of the week it’s been!!! I don’t believe in anything other than God and His control and will over everything in life, but man, if I was a comso/horoscope kind of girl I’d definitely would have said that there was something off in the cosmos or some stars misaligned this week!!!
Thursday started off things by being weird. Amber was acting a little unusual and grouchy and took an extremely long nap, Bob had an off day at work in which they all got yelled at–those are always fun, Lara was supposed to come over for dinner but had a crazy weird day herself which ended up in her getting interrogated at the Cherry Point Gate as to why her windshield had a crack in it which caused her to miss dinner. Honestly who interrogates a 7 month along pregnant lady who has the most innocent face in the world and was just trying to go buy some diapers??!! On top of all that hulabaloo Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcet both died (as you are more than well aware of by now).
Friday I figured out the reason Amber had been acting strange was she was getting sick and by that night had a high temp. of 103. I called the nurses line (thanks to Lara for the number) and they said she didn’t have any other symptoms and as long as it didn’t get to 104 to just give her the normal cold/flu treatment at home.
All day yesterday you could tell Amber was sick, but she was still acting pretty normal during the morning. She took a long nap, and after she woke up from it she was very upset. She would cry unless I held her and she wouldn’t talk or eat or even drink much, just whimpered. I decided to re-take her temp. and it was 103.8. I thought I’d give her a bath to cool her down but when I was done it had gone up to 104. By this time she was really acting miserable so off to the emergency room we went.
After an hour of watching them repeat the same stuff about Michael Jackson’s death over and over and over again they finally got us in the back where they took Amber’s temp. again. This time it was 106.5!!!!!!!! Talk about freaking a mommy out!!!! They immediately took us back and after ruling out an ear infection they told us they’d have to run a bunch of tests. 4 hours, one iv, bag of blood, catheter, and two big doses of Tylenol and Motrin later we got sent home with the diagnosis of a viral infection. Better safe than sorry….but oh my poor baby!!!! I am absolutely freaked out by needles, especially iv/blood drawing ones…and yet it was 10 times worse to have them poking and hurting my baby than it ever was getting them in me! 🙁
Luckily Amber’s doing MUCH better today! She took a good nap, has only had a low grade fever, ate soup and drank juice, and it sound asleep in bed right now. I think we’re on the road to recovery! Hopefully next week isn’t so very weird! (Although adding to the weirdness was Billy Mays ALSO being found dead….but I’m including that in this past weekend weirdness)
