Poor Miss CC is sick for the first time. She woke up this morning with a fever of 102.8, and later vomited. And she doesn't want anything to eat! Anyone who knows CC knows how alarming that is!
Her pediatrician said to keep a close eye on her, but it's not necessary to bring her in. She probably has a stomach virus, so we are supposed to give her only fluids -- milk and Pedialyte -- for the rest of the day. She also needs to take acetaminophen (Tylenol) to bring her fever down, but because she's vomiting, I need to use acetaminophen suppositories. Oy! As if taking her temperature rectally wasn't undignified enough!
The good news is that it should blow over in 12-24 hours. In the meantime, CC and I are headed out to CVS to pick up the essentials.
UPDATE: By her afternoon nap, CC's temperature was down to 101.8. I gave her some acetaminophen, and by bedtime tonight it was down to 100.6. It looks like she is on the mend!
