You give me fever...

Counting our blessings, this is the first time she's had a reaction to shots. She seemed great yesterday afternoon and slept wonderfully all night. She took an extremely long morning nap though (almost 3 hours!) and was burning up. So I took her temp with the digital ear thingy and it beeped like crazy...I knew before I looked at the numbers that she had a fever. I gave her Tylenol and called the doctor just to be on the safe side. She seemed to be in fairly good spirits, but I could tell she wasn't feeling well. She only a took a half hour nap later in the afternoon, refused her dinner (I gotta say, the beef with beef gravy didn't smell all that appetizing) and conked out by 7:30. I felt so bad for her. Now she's fast asleep and I'm downing the martinis Chris made for me. It's been a trying day.
