Poor baby... =(

Our baby girl has been sick, and quite honestly, miserable, since last Friday. =*( We went to the doctor on Friday when it all started and they weren't really sure what was going on. Then we went again on Monday as things had definitely progressed (not in a good way) over the weekend, and they diagnosed her with "roseola" (really high fever for several days, followed by a bad all-over rash, SUPER cranky and miserable, etc.) but told me it should be gone by the end of the day on Tuesday. Well, no such luck! It was WORSE by last night. Talked to the doctor again last night and they want us to come back in this morning to take another look. It has been a VERY rough several days, for all of us! As most of you know, we've been blessed beyond comprehension with such a wonderfully happy baby, which makes it that much harder when she's NOT herself and is miserable and just cries all the time -- we've never had to deal with this side of her really. It also doesn't help matters much that this happens to be going on at the same time that she is going through a gigantic mommy-ONLY phase! She doesn't want to eat (she lost a pound from Friday to Monday -- good thing she's a big healthy girl that can afford to lose that pound and it won't affect her much!), she doesn't sleep much (even with Benedryl!), she just lays there limp and lathargic at times, while other times she perks up but it screaming and crying almost non-stop. =( The night before last, she only slept from 4am-6:30am. Noah was up with her all night last night so I have yet to find out how that went. As all of you Mom's know, it's such a horrible, helpless feeling when your baby doesn't feel good, and they can't even tell you what might help, and you can't do a darn thing about it, but just wait for that day that they start getting back to more like themselves, while drying to keep your calm and your sanity all at the same time. We are longing for that day. Prayers would be good, PLEASE! =)

Hope everyone else is doing better than we are! LOL. Wish we were out enjoying the beautiful sunshine!

Sad :( Addie's only been sick once, and it was awful!! I am dreading the next time. Give her lots of hugs for us.
