Of course Wednesday morning while we were packing the car, Madeline started running a fever. Lovely. There was no time to call the Dr., so I gave her some motrin and we went on our way. We picked up Brooke from school and shockingly did not hit a ton of traffic while traveling to Curtis' Aunt and Uncle's house in Springfield, MA. Madeline's fever would not go down and by Thursday morning she was pathetic. There were not any urgent cares open so off to the ER we went.
Here is my little sick patient:
After them finding no cause for her fever, they wanted to test her for a UTI (which was very involved). I decided not to go that route just yet and we left without any answers but at least I knew she did not have pneumonia, bronchitis, or an ear infection :)
The rest of Thanksgiving was great! The kids looked adorable if I do say so myself.
Here they are with their cousin C. Don't they all look thrilled to be doing this photo shoot?
Friday I set out to do some shopping. I had a BLAST! I think since most stores opened at midnight, by the time I got there at 7am it was not crowded at all! I got some great deals. I convinced Kate to steal a shopping cart and I would push it :) I was so glad. I bought 3 Yankee Candles and they were heavy!
Overall the weekend was fine, but Madeline was such a crab the last day. Yesterday she broke out in a rash and has roseola so that solved the fever mystery! I know this won't be the last time a holiday is interrupted by an illness.
I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! On to Christmas now! I am done shopping, my cards are mailed out, and now I am starting to prep for our trip to CA!
