Fifth Disease

I took Britton to the pediatrician today (who also happens to be “Gracie’s mom”) and she has fifths disease AND she tested positive for the flu! Apparently they can test this by swabbing her nose. She had the flu shot the day before she became ill- although Anna said it is inactive flu shot.

Her fever has been 103.5 and 103.1 for the past two days- and she is in her 6th Day of having fever! In the last 36 hours, all I have been able to get her to eat is a McFlurry (oreo) from McDonalds. Oh, she also had some Gatorade, apple juice and coke. She went to bed last night without supper @ 6pm! Poor sweet girl. She doesn’t even complain!

Little bit on the other hand seems to be trucking along just fine. Should she spike a fever, Anna (the “doctor”) will call her in something that reduces the life of the flu by 1.5 days.

That’s Meme calling now, must give her an update.
