Lottie and Andrew weren't able to come to the party. That morning (Saturday, May 5), Lottie woke with a shockingly high fever. Tylenol wouldn't touch it.After running different tests at the doctor's office, I was told it was most likely a virus. After hours and hours of sleep, a Priesthood blessing from her Dad and Grandfather, she woke up the next day well. Henry and Eliza came down with the same illness in the days that followed. In sharing my thoughts on the intense virus, I explained to Andrew that it seemed like it was a seven day illness slammed into one. The children were miserable as they took their turn shivering and sweating from the fever. They slept and slept, ate nothing and thankfully woke up, after hitting 24 hour mark, appearing to be 100% better.
Last to be hit, Eliza rebounded just in time to meet the Blasers at the Dinosaur Park. I was clear with Michelle about the illness that had just invaded our home prior to the play date. She gave the go ahead and off we went. Why we have never been to the park when it is so close to our home is beyond me! The kids had a great time!
We returned to my house where we gave Lottie and Clayton a nap, introduced the boys to our sandbox and made chocolate chip cookies. I apologize for the consistent cliche commentary, but seriously it felt like 'old times.'
