The day after Jeremy returned I was starting to feel better, but Emmy began to get sick and feverish. It was so hard to see her sick, but oddly she did not complain of the exact same symptoms I had. However, her fever was frequently very high (around 103F) and she was in clear distress. I think we went to the doctor 4 times last week. She was supposed to start preschool on Thursday but we had to delay it because she was so ill. Finally on Friday we got a call from the doctor who said she did not have the flu like we had thought, but was suffering form a kidney infection. I could not believe we had just been trying to keep her fever down when she should have been on antibiotics days earlier! But we just hadn't known. So, a few days of antibiotics later, Emmy is getting back to her normal self, and she was able to start preschool yesterday! Besides being completely exhausted, I think it is going well. She is very excited about the upcoming book fair.
