So, going back to my previous post or two, Faye had a scary high fever. It went down like this.
Monday Faye had a slight temperature so I didn't send her to school. But she acted fine all day. She played and goofed off and made me question the fever that I had read. But she was home from school, so we took advantage of it. We played beauty parlor. We straightened her hair, which she loves. It is a shame, actually, because she has such beautiful curls, but everyone always wants what they can't have, I suppose. I was the same way when I was little. Once her hair was straightened, I decided to really spoil her and whipped out my makeup. Christmas morning, I tell you what! She loved being pampered and loved on.
I took her temperature when we got home. It was 101.2. I was so relieved and felt so humbled. How God blesses us! What a wonderful blessing it was for her fever to go down like that, so quickly, so much. And then she went to sleep, and slept so well all that night.
I took her to the doctor the next morning and we discovered that she had strep. And then, my wonderful doctor prescribed a double dose of amoxicillin, knowing that if one of my children had strep, it would only be a matter of time before another caught it. Which was wise because by Friday, Beth caught it. She too, got a temperature of 103.5, but luckily her fever responded to the Tylenol and went down.
I cannot express enough how wonderful it is that we are now, finally well. What a wonderful thing health is!
