Just some random photos of her. What a goof!
These two photos were taken today. She still had on the bracelet they gave her at the ER. She didn't want to take it off today, but when they put it on her last night, she freaked out!
Yes, that's right. Last night was our first E.R. visit. It wasn't too bad of an experience to be honest. They had us there a total of 2 hours. Yesterday, after Lilli's nap, she woke up really fussy so I went to go pick her up and she was burning up. I have never felt her this hot before. So I took her temperature (rectally) and the thermometer read 103.8. I don't think I left it in long enough either, so it very well could have been higher than that. I freaked out! Ben had just left for the week to go up to Shaw AFB for ALS. Yes, JUST left (well, he was about 2 hours away)! I didn't know what to do, so I call up my good friend Megan and asked her at what temperature we're supposed to take our kids in to get seen ASAP. She said 104 and again, I freaked out. She told me to get Lilli in a warm/cool bath to bring her temperature down and give her some Tylenol. I did that and it seemed to work. Her temp went down to about 101, but before I put her down for bed it started to go back up. I made sure she was drinking plenty of fluids (juice), but she wasn't drinking it. She kept waking up, I'd go up there, check her temperature, lay her down, sing her some songs, and go back to bed. At about 12:45am, she come down to my room really fussy, so I pick her up and she's burning up again. I tried not to freak out this time. But I knew I needed to get her to the hospital. I checked her temperature (underarm this time) and it read 103.7. I KNOW that her core temperature was hotter than this, so I called Ben and asked him what he thought I should do. He said to take her in. I was so scared. So we went in. They told me she probably just had a virus, and then they stocked me up with some Motrin and Tylenol and we went home. I'm glad we went though. I felt better. Though, by the end of our visit, Lilli was feeling better and jumping on the hospital bed. Today she was feeling better, but still felt warm. I gave her some more medicine and TONS of juice and Gatorade. She was probably loving it! Hopefully she continues to get better.
This experience really made me appreciate Ben and the fact that he has the priesthood. I know I probably should have called our neighbors to come give her a blessing, but it was so late and I didn't want to "inconvenience" them. I know they would have been more than willing. Anyway, I'm so glad to have a husband that holds the priesthood and strives everyday to live worthy so he can use it whenever he's needed. I sure needed it yesterday!
