Ok, what is it about kids and fever on Friday nights right after the Dr.'s office closes, late at night, or Holiday's when the Dr.'s office is closed? My kids seem to have fit in everyone of those categories sometime in their lives! :) As you all know, we have been sick around here. Chace has been running fever, and we have been waiting for the Dr's office to open after a long weekend for him to be seen! Well last night about 10:00 pm, he starts feeling really bad, so I checked his temp and it was 101.3, so I gave him a dose of Advil so he could go to bed. Well he laid on the couch for almost an hour, but still he was looking bad. So I checked his temp. again and it was 103.1, I started to get a little worried, so he went back into the luke warm bath. After that, I put him back on the couch and took his temp again, IT WAS 105.3!!! I Know, I was FREAKING OUT!! I thought I looked at it wrong, maybe that 5 was a 2. I said OH MY GOSH! Chace said what is it, I told him he didn't need to know! I took it again and it was 105.0. I went and got every thermometer we own, and was testing them out, Chance was getting all his A/C, thermometer gadgets! I told him this wasn't a science experiment! :) He went back into the bath, for as long as he could stand it! It started to go down, little by little. A few minutes later, it was 103.4. I had my shoes on and my purse on my shoulder, ready to go to the hospital! My husband said, give it 15 more minutes, if it's not down will go. Well PRAISE GOD!!!!! It started going down and we finally got to breathe easier and go to bed! I say bed, I set my alarm every hour to take his temperature! So I didn't get much sleep. Then I had to go to the Dr. at 8:00 am for myself. Chace's Dr. couldn't see him and mine couldn't either, so I took him to a new pediatric office, that my Dr. suggested! They were really good there! Well my diagnosis was right, he has Strep. She said his tonsils were really red and really big! So I guess his tonsils will be taken out soon! Autumn had Strep so much, that she had to get hers out last December! Well, I guess that's enough of my drama! I just ask for continued prayers for us, and that his fever doesn't get like that again! That is too SCARY for me!! Thank you all for the prayers already! Sorry for not posting a card today, I did make one, but I can't post it yet! :)

Have a Blessed night!
