Sick with Side Dish of Spoiled :)

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers with our sick girl. Tuesday and Wednesday were pretty terrible. Ivy was pretty lifeless and ran a temperature between 102 and at it's highest was 104.8. We are talking scary high! Today seemed to turn around a little bit- our fever steadily got down to 99 by 10am and stayed there for the majority of the day. We were able to take a walk/ride in the stroller to enjoy the spring weather. This evening it spiked again to 102 but the Tylenol seems to be controlling it pretty well. Grandma and Grandpa (Ivy has officially named them Meemaw and Pawpaw) came and brought dinner. It was great to visit with them and they were quite entertaining for Ivy. Of course, this helped her to feel better!
One thing a bit different today was that Ivy had enough energy to test me and actually cry when she didn't get her way..... so her way it was!! They said at the doctor not to make her upset because it takes too much oxygen to cry. That is pretty difficult with a 19 month old- but it explains the 2 suckers we had in a 1 hour trip to doctor, the fact that she had pizza and ice cream for breakfast this morning, and that her request to stand on the kitchen table was granted!!!
She is mainly sick and a little bit spoiled but we sure do love her! :)
We are hoping for no fever tomorrow... if it goes above 100 I think we will have to pay another visit to Dr. Hood.
