(Post title is in reference to this previous post.)
She is ON an antibiotic. The third one. A powerful one. It seems to be working, she isn't pulling on her ear anymore. And my throat feels a whole lot better, so she must not have whatever she was giving me anymore.
Today, I pick her up at daycare. They are out on the playground in the blazing hot sun (um, Mother Nature, it's the end of September. 80 degrees, really? In the Midwest? Seriously, get a clue.) Her caregiver tells me that a little while earlier my wee one laid down on the ground like she wasn't feeling well, and felt "a little warm". But it could be from playing outside.
Nope. Fever of 102.8. When we got home. After being in the air conditioning in the car in traffic on the way home.
I called her doctor's office 12 minutes before they closed. Hi, remember me, the one with the snotty screeching (but adorably precious) baby. You know, the one with all the hair. Ya, she's been on this antibiotic for 6 days and now has a fever of 102. Suggestions?
She has probably picked up something viral, maybe from daycare, the pleasant Medical Assistant tells me. (This is the same one I talked to last Friday that heard the coughing in the background.) She suggested Tylenol and a bath to bring down the high fever, and alternate with Motrin. We did Tylenol at 5:00, Motrin at 6:30, and she was still a little warm when I put her to bed at 7:30.
I'm going to freaking hire a nanny with the strongest immune system ever to have her cared for at home. I'm tired of all these freaking diseases and sicknesses. It seems like she's the only one getting sick - nobody else was out with pinkeye, nobody else was running a fever today.
In better news, I totally figured out how to create a Wimba classroom on Blackboard and record audio over a Powerpoint presentation, and archive it for students to watch. I felt like a rock star when I left work today. It's not my best work - I spent an hour going through the presentation the first time, then realized that I wasn't recording the archive. Nice. The second time, knowing I had to leave to go get the girl, I rushed through it a little. Oh well, they have a little pause button if they think it goes too fast.
So I'm going to try to supplement my powerpoints for my hybrid class with some online presentations using Wimba in Blackboard, and see if that helps the complaints I've been fielding about the hybrid format.
Meanwhile, I'm afraid it might end up being a long night, so I'm headed to bed early.
Betsy - I saw your question about table height in the comments. I'm gonna measure for you. Just not tonight :)
