Kari has been battling a cold the past several days but we thought it was probably a routine cold and she would be past it before long.
However...around 3:00 this morning, I woke up to Kari burning up with a fever. Her temperature rose from 100.6 to 101.3 in about 20 minutes. I quickly got stuff packed as I was calling the on-call doctor because I knew it would be an overnight stay.
I dropped Malachi off to Gammy, picked up Pappy and we were off to Lexington! For those of you that know Kari personally...she had the expected reaction. She sang and talked all the way there and kept Pappy and I entertained. She was hilarious! She was burning up with fever and feeling horrible but kept her sense of humor the entire time. I love it!
After we were checked into our room, Kari got to see all of her favorite nurses that were working. She, of course, had to entertain them all before their shift change.
She stayed awake until around 8:30 and only fell asleep when they gave her Benadryl! She's a trooper!
Please keep our little princess in your prayers. Her counts are all good so we're hoping we won't have to stay the full 48 hours that they usually require with a fever. The doctor seems to think she will be fine after 24 hours. :)
Thanks for your prayers!
