We haven't seen any PFAPA fevers for months. I've been thinking we were done with it, but now I'm not sure. Munchkin has the mouth sores and the fever that went from normal to 104.9 in 30 minutes. But she was also sniffly, so I didn't give her the prednisone-I wanted to wait and see is anything else happened. I gave her ibuprofen and it lowered to 103.5 and then went back up to 106 an hour later. Now she's throwing up. I tried giving her prednisone, but it came back up 30 minutes later. She hasn't thrown up in a while and is hanging around a comfortable 104 (everything is relative, right?) so we're hanging out and watching dinosaur train on Netflix. Dinosaurs are the new bugs around here.
She looks so pale.
Is it PFAPA or something else?? Really wish I knew.
I can hear Tumbleweed crying in her sleep from her room. She has been waking up again. Sometimes she'll go back to sleep, but I have a feeling she'll be out here within 20 minutes.
Jack asked me to get up with him at 5:30 today and I hate to let him down, but oh goodness I'm going to be tired! I've heard Februarys are hard for homeschoolers and Jack is no exception. I've decided it's not worth getting angry and threatening when he doesn't do his school work. He knows the consequences and has lost privileges the last 2 days for not finishing. There were a lot of tears today when he wasn't able to play his game (Terraria) again, but I think the lesson is starting to sink in. You have to work to get paid.
Igloo suggested we treat school like a job. Every day he finishes say, before noon, he earns vacation time. Since I don't believe in summers off from school, I think this approach might really work for us. And here comes tumbleweed, tumbling down the hallway. Munchkin's poor eyes have grown heavy. I hope she sleeps. I hope I sleep!
