Spring Day

Yesterday afternoon, since Anna was feeling better, (due to her medicine kicking in) we decided to play outside in the beautiful spring weather. Anna surprised us by saying, "bubble". We didn't know she knew that word. After we played outside, we decided to go to the park and have dinner, I'll post those pictures tomorrow.
Last night, as soon as her Motrin wore off, Anna was burning up with fever again. The doctor called to check on her and was very concerned that she hadn't had a wet diaper in over 8 hours (it ended up being 14 hours!). They were worried about her being dehydrated. They had us wake her up and try to get some liquids in her. She wasn't wanting to drink the water or milk, so we gave her two Pedialight Popsicles. We were very thankful that she ate both of them. The doctor had said that if she didn't have a wet diaper in a few hours that we would have to take her to the ER. Thankfully she did have one at 2 am. The poor thing cried when she went though because it hurt.
We have a doctor's appointment at 3:00 today. The doctor called this morning and said that if she didn't have any wet diapers this morning that we need to bring her in earlier. So far, no wet diapers, but she has been drinking some milk. She is eating a few bites, which is great, because she ended up loosing a pound from being sick and not eating. She can't afford to be losing weight. Ryan and Rylie went to the store to get her some more of the Pedialight Popsicles so hopefully we can keep her hydrated. Thankfully, her fever broke this morning! Her mood is much improved as well!
