I spent yesterday mostly on the couch. Today, I'm fine. Lorelei went to school, but they called and asked me to pick her up early. She has bounced between no fever and temperatures of 102 and up. If I only knew what it was....the kid has virtually no other symptoms besides a raging fever.
I took her to the doctor yesterday and after a urinalysis, Strep test, and an ear and throat check, it was deemed a "mystery virus".
You Moms out there will recognized that....it means "Your child will not be getting any antibiotics and you will just have to ride it out and watch your child suffer."
If she is still running a fever tomorrow, the pediatrician wants to see her again. That will make FIVE days of fever. Holy crap.
Ever feel that creepy sense of dread on the back of your neck? Well, it might just be Earl:

But she still hates me.
I prefer my vultures looking like this:
