I have about three blog posts sitting unfinished… the combination of snow days and long work days were getting in the way. But now, Miss Jordan is sick. Again. This time she’s sicker than I’ve seen in a while.

Poor baby. She spiked a high fever last night and couldn’t keep medicine down. I spent a while rubbing her down with a cold washcloth… Then she passed out. I took this picture between the time I realized how high her fever had gotten and when I stripped her down to cool off. Icky stuff my friends. Icky.

The good news? She’s learned the joys of Pandora’s lullaby channel and she’s discovered which dresses she likes the most hanging in her closet from her view in bed.

The fever is lower today and she’s holding ibuprofen in her belly. But she’s weak and taking it slow. That means she’s missing dance and soccer practice this week and soccer practice. But we do what we have to do to get better!

I promise to share the other unfinished blog posts… but for now, I’m going to focus on rubbing Jordan’s back and talking to her when she feels up to it.

    I think Haylee is starting to fight the same exact thing.

    Started with sore throat and now we are at the fever stage.

    Good luck, Jen. That’s never fun. We did the carousel-o-sickness at our house about a month ago.
