So tired

What a exhausting night here at the Bergman's house. Alexis started running a fever yesterday morning of 100.1, low but she was clingy. She took three naps which if you know Alexis is not normal and the girl wouldn't let me get more then three feet away from her with out bursting into tears. When I put her to bed she was warm still but I had already given her Ibuprofen about 2 hours prior and she just crashed. Anyways she had been asleep about 30 minutes when she started moaning and crying, when I went in she was shaking and burning up at 102.9. So I woke her up and gave her Tylenol and Britt called my dad to come help give her a blessing. We gave her a Popsicle and some water, she must have thought she scored big getting a Popsicle at 10:00 at night, and then I rocked her and she went back to sleep. Well at 12 she tried to get up and come find me but was to shaky or something and so she just sat on the floor. I figured it was going to be a long night of getting up so I tried to sleep on the couch with her. She had such a hard to getting to sleep and it took me 4 tries to sit down after getting to sleep, finally I just put a movie on and let her watch a few minutes to relax her. She then fell asleep with me until just after 5. She threw a huge fit for me about taking more medicine and I took her temperature it was 97.9. She was a little stinker about going back to sleep for Britt and finally they both ended up in our bed with me and we didn't wake up until 8:40. She is still a bit crabby but isn't as hot and she hasn't had medicine since 5 this morning. I don't know why she got such a high fever but I think the blessing really helped. It is so sad when they get sick and Alexis has never shook like that with a fever so it was really scary http://children.webmd.com/tc/fever-seizures-topic-overview . It may not have been a fully febrile seizure but it sure seemed like it to me. It was very scary. Hopefully she is feeling better today since we have a wedding dinner tonight and the wedding tomorrow of some very good friends. Well of to bath her since she wants her shoes on to go outside and play.

Wow, I am sorry she has been so sick. Eliza had RSV with double ear aches this last winter. I don't think she has ever been so sick and it shook us up. Espcially because Isaac, Rachel and I all than caught it. Being healthy really is a blessing.
