Still so hot that I’m getting chills being next to her. 😦
I always hate when any of my kids are sick enough to act sick, and offer to lie in bed for the day.
For those who are unfamiliar with neuro crud and epilepsy, let me assure you there’s an extra special dimension added. First off, being sick often lowers the seizure threshold, so any illness becomes cause for Mama being on high seizure alert. The general fuzziness and lethargy that go with fevers become questionable–was that something? Are those just the shivers of chills? Why just take a peek at her throat when we can check the color of the nail beds too?
And let’s not forget med side effects. One of the side effects the girl has from her AEDs is that she doesn’t sweat. This drives the fever higher, and makes it harder to break.
I guess I’ll be calling the ped tomorrow if things aren’t significantly different. The middle guy’s simulated school day at the middle school he’s applying to is tomorrow. This should be fun.
And NO. I didn’t write today.
