Madison Update: Influenza

I first need to thank Marisa and Kat for keeping me calm last night (I'll link you guys after I get some sleep tonight).  They kept me calm when (aff) Madison's fever spiked up to 105.7 last night.  We got it back down.
However, her fever spiked back up around 2 this afternoon to 102.3 which at that point I called the doctor.  I then gave her some Motrin again.  They got her in at 3:15, and we didn't get back into the room until 4.  When (aff) they took her temp there, she was at 104.9.  They gave her some Tylenol, did a strep test, and a urinalysis.  They think she has influenza.  They think she'll be over it by Thursday (we are suppose to leave for AZ Friday morning, so at this point, we have no idea if we are going yet).  However, I guess influenza is highly contagious, so they are worried that Will is going to get it.  Since he is only 8 months old, that would be very very bad.  We now have to give her Motrin and Tylenol alternating every four hours.

If I don't get to post anything tomorrow, we are back at the doctors office.
