Thank you for your continued prayers!
Overall, today was a good day.
Elena only slept until 6:30 this morning and has been up ever since!! Even as a toddler, she never was a big napper.
Today, she stayed on the couch ALL day. I guess that equals a nap for her. She woke up with a fever and continued to battle a headache and cough throughout the day. Her appetite was fair. We were allowed to give her Tylenol today and cold medicine. However after tonight, she's no longer allowed Tylenol. If she runs a fever in the morning, we will have to call the clinic. She is holding on to a low grade fever now (99). Keep praying!
Perhaps the best part of the day was when a friend called to check on us and said she was bringing over dinner! In the rain! What a surprise and a blessing! Thank you Karen! You are so wonderful and thoughtful! We are going to bed full and happy.
The best part of Elena's day was seeing one of her favorite teachers from elementary school! Thank you Nancy for bringing home Liv and for buying them vanilla milkshakes!
As we came upstairs to get ready for bed, Elena asked about going to school tomorrow. I told her it depended on if she ran a fever in the morning or not. She said, "I hope not. I don't like missing stuff. I really want to go to school tomorrow." It makes me happy that she loves school so much. She is a fighter and continues to be brave in every situation. I am proud of her resilience and determination.
Hopefully, tonight will be filled with plenty of restful sleep for all of us.
We'll send out another update in the morning.
