As the last post said, Emma got her immunizations yesterday as well as the flu shot. Last night about 2:00 she woke us up and was working into a spell. It turned out to be a bad one. At first we thought it was due to congestion as she was pretty congested, but then I took her temperature. She had a fever that went all the way up to 104.9. We were able to bring it down with tylenol (which I had already been giving her) and ibuprofen, undressing her, and bathing with a wet rag. She stayed in bed with us for quite a bit of the night. It took her about an hour and a half to come out of the episode and most of the rest of the night to feel well enough to sleep. Needless to say, I will be trying to get some sleep today. Emma still has a fever this morning, but not nearly as high (102.1 at last check). Oddly she has these dark red (almost bloody) looking patches on the sides of her tongue. I think she must have been biting her tongue during the spell last night, but if these rings a bell with anyone knowing it is something else, let me know. I have called the doctor and left a message just to let them know what happened and to see if they wanted to do anything else about it.

Would never want to scare you, but I found this…
Maybe it’s a type of strep?
Look under history and physical.
Sounds like…as I look a little more…a side effect from having a really high temperature.
