Kiara has been sick since we got back from Phoenix. She has a horrible cough, runny nose, and a temperature. I took her to the doctor on Thursday and he thought it was allergies and he put her on 2 allergy medications in addition to the one she is already on. She doesn't seem much better and her fever has gotten higher, so we are going back into the doctor tomorrow, Tuesday, morning. I feel bad for her because there is only so much TV you can watch! She loves school and she hasn't been there in over a week.
This all worries me a bit because 1 1/2 years ago Kiara had 'fevers of unknown origin', code for the doctors have no idea what is going on. They lasted for 6 months and they thought she was developing systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. But, they eventually went away! Those months brought me closer to my Heavenly Father and taught me a lot. I also view life a lot differently since then and don't sweat the small stuff as much. I have also been proud of myself since then to not freak out every time she seemed to be sick. This is the first time, I am a bit worried that we are going to go back into the world of the unknown! But, I know my Heavenly Father is watching over my sweet girl and will take care of her. (and her mother, too!)
The pictures above are from my sister-in-law's baby shower this weekend. Obviously, Kiara doesn't look too sick! She acts pretty normal when she has Ibuprofen in her. But, she probably had a little too much fun with her cousins because I had to take her home to get her cough medication because she couldn't stop coughing!
