Never a Dull Moment

So the last three nights Imogene has slept amazingly well. Only waking up once to eat around 4 or 5 and then going back to sleep until 6:30 or 7:30. Three days in a row she took 2-hour naps.
We should have known something was up and that we weren't turning the corner towards regular sleep. Today she had a fever that got up to 104.3, so we called the on-call doctor who recommended she see someone today. Seeing as the pediatrician's office was closed, that left us with no where to go but the ER. Thank goodness Whitney was still here, so we didn't have to take Lily with us. We were sure they were going to tell us she had H1N1, but turns out she has an upper respiratory infection (which I believe is doctor-speak for a cold) and a touch of an ear infection in her left ear. She was given amoxicillin and sent home. So it was definitely better than it could have been, but makes us wonder if that was the cause for the great sleep. We'll have to just wait and see!

  1. SOOO HAPPY it was 'just' a respiratory infection. did you ever think we'd be so relieved with just a common cold?! glad to hear you all are home safe and sound and i'm praying that the sleep continues with imogene.
