Finally Feeling Better

Avery has finally turned a corner today!

Yesterday morning we ended up taking her to the doctor. When she woke up, she was really delirious and not acting like herself. I took her temperature and one reading was 101.1, the other was 103.4. So I decided to take her to the walk-in hours just to be on the safe side. They checked her ears and did a strep culture of her throat, but all came out clean. He said it was most likely just a virus but to keep an eye on her over the weekend. There was a possibility that it could be a UTI so he said if she got worse, they'd have to test for that.

Unfortunately, yesterday was by far her worst day. I think we held her all day long-she just didn't want to get down. And she took a 4 hour nap! I actually woke her up after 4 hours because I was afraid she wouldn't sleep at night (she did thankfully!).

This is pretty much how we were all day long: I'm happy to report that today she woke up in pretty good spirits and was ready to play! That in itself made us happy! She's still a little stuffed up and coughs here and there (mostly in bed), but otherwise she seems pretty good!

She somehow got interested in our icicles outside so I broke one and brought it in for her to investigate:

She loved picking it up:

And watching it drip:

Today was still a very lazy day for us-we didn't want to take her out anywhere since she still isn't 100% yet. Lots of playing and cuddling for us!!
