Sunday was full of rain storms and we found ourselves without power for the majority of the day. Once again we were thankful for our generator which allowed us to continue with Drake's scheduled breathing treatments, CPT vest, and kept his vent running without using up all of our battery backup. We purchased our generator several years ago during hurricane Ike when we were without power for almost a full week. Little did we know how much we would rely on it in the future. Definitely a good investment!
Last night Kennedy woke me up crying at 2am. When I got to her room, I was alarmed to find that she had thrown up and was burning up with fever. I cleaned her up, gave her Tylenol, started laundry, and took her into the guest bedroom for the remainder of the night...and of course I stayed with her. We battled her fever for the rest of the day. Even with a fever of 101.5, she still wanted to play and run around the house. She's a pretty tough kid who is hard to slow down. I am happy to say that tonight at bedtime she was finally completely fever free! I'm praying this will last! We are scheduled for the pediatrician in the morning. Of course, Kennedy has been wanting to see Drake and give him hugs all day. Poor little thing really doesn't understand why she has to stay away from him. Instead of the nightly hug & kiss she usually gives him, she said, "night, night" to him from a distance.
We will continue to work on tackling this little hurdle of sickness while doing everything in our power to keep Drake healthy. We opted against his vent trials today so that he was only breathing the filtered air from his vent rather than room air. Lysol is our best friend right now! Praying for healthier days ahead and a good report for next week!
I love how we have gotten so much use out of this outfit! It finally fits the way that it is supposed to fit :)
