It's been a while....

Update- No Mono! Hurray!

It's been a while since I last posted and boy have I missed it. Last week Sophia was really sick. She started with a fever of 104.2 last Monday morning and it just didn't stop until Friday. It wasn't continually that high but it did reach 104~104.8 several times. We went to the doctor Tuesday and was told she didn't have strep but had white"muck" on her tonsils and looked like she had tonsillitis.Went back on Thursday and still had the muck but now her glands were swollen.Again no strep but this time but because this fever just refused to leave her Dr. wanted blood work done because it could be mononucleosis. Friday we went for blood work(her first time and what a trouper-not one tear!) Her Dr.called Saturday morning and said her white blood and liver counts were normal  but until the mono test comes back she can't definitively say she doesn't have it. She hasn't have a fever since Friday morning but does still have some fatigue.

When Sophia is sick I'm not allowed to leave her side.Ever.She flips out if I'm out of her site for even a few minutes so I had to try and get as much work done as I could from my bedroom. I don't have a laptop so when she would fall asleep I would run downstairs and hop and the computer for a few minutes,send out orders,try to get a little cleaning done and then dash back before I got busted.

While all this was going on Gabriella was just awesome. No complaining that Sophia was getting so much attention,being dragged back and forth to the Dr and being trapped in the house for a week. To make matter worse Friday was her birthday. Fortunately for me I had planned a celebration out of the house so I didn't really have to do much but show up and pay up.Unfortunately with Soph being so sick I wasn't going to be able to be there.We tried to convince her to hang out with daddy for a couple of hours so I could go but she was not hearing it. John ended up having to take Gabby and 4 of her Friends to the movies and dinner.
Gabby didn't care who took her just as long as she got there.

So now that Sophia is feeling better and Gabriella's birthday celebrations are over things should be back to normal this week.Hopefully
