Roozle came home sick from school yesterday. After a long nap, her temperature spiked to 103.9, the highest we’ve seen. We know that fevers on their own aren’t what’s scary, it’s the body’s way of fighting something, but still. 103.9 is not a number I want to see.
Since then, she’s been at between 101 and 102.5. With Motrin, watermelon, and other cool snacks, she’s been doing okay. With moments of total sadness mixed in too of course. Our standard way of dealing with high fevers has always been to alternate Tylenol and Motrin, but this time she’s refusing the Tylenol.
She just colored on the couch and is eating well, so I’m hoping she will be better tomorrow.
How do you deal with fevers?
