3.30am Charlotte woke with a fever. I could feel she was hot so I didn’t take her temp, I just dosed her with ibuprofen.
4.30am her body was still quite hot. I took her temperature and it was 104.6. I gave her acetaminophen and waited.
5am she was starting to sweat.
6.30am her fever was down to 101.5 and she wanted to get up, go to the bathroom and get dressed. After she was dressed I broke the news to her that she can’t go to school today. She cried bitterly. I haven’t told her that she won’t be able to take dance either. It’s going to be tough because I’m sure Margaret will go.
It’s Thursday and Margaret goes to school for the first time all week–oh yikers! I have to check that she’s getting school lunch!!
