Bella continues to have fevers...last night's highest was 104.1. We're managing the fevers with over the counter Motrin and Tylenol. The dr. is going to have me try to get a urine sample here at home using a bag or cup even though it's not the most ideal way of doing it. Also, he wants to give it until Friday to see if the fevers break and/or a rash breaks out which would indicate to him a viral issue which is what he's been seeing a lot of. He said if the fever doesn't break by Friday that we'll likely go ahead with some bloodwork. Or, if she continues to get these fevers through the summer, when viruses aren't as prevalent, he'll want to do a blood workup then, too.

So, we pray and wait. It's in these kinds of circumstances that I take great comfort in Psalm 139

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

Prayed for Bella multiple times today. Now Duncan has a 103 degree fever. I hope this will be our only experience in while!

I miss a few days of checking your blog and am overwhelmed a bit by your circumstances. What a week! Poor Bella, she must be miserable. Fevers are a good thing, too, remember. It means the body is fighting something and the fever is an indicator of this. I am anxious to hear what the doc will do/say.

I am CRACKING UP about 2 hours of quiet time!!!! (previous post) Norah quit napping at age 2 and there hasn't been much quiet since. I've given in to Webkinz (bad mommy!) and that gives me 30-45 minutes of time for work phone calls, etc. She's learned how to play checkers & connect 4 online, even learning how to statergize - ha ha. So it's not all bad! ttyl
