updates on Jillian

Well, rest assured, she is doing a little better. Aaron came home and said it was an absolute waste of time seeing the doctor last night. She didn't know what to do. She even said she had to go see other people. She basically asked the same questions the advise nurse asked us on the phone and that was it. I wish the advise nurse didn't tell us to bring her in. She woke up crying about 6 more times last night but fortunately went back to sleep. She woke up at around 10:30, so she got alot of sleep. She is starting to eat and run around so I know she will be back to normal soon!! Thanks for your prayers.

Flu Shot gone bad

Here it is 1:45 am and I am worried sick. Aaron took Jillie to the emergency room tonight about an hour ago because she has had a fever for two days now because of the flu shot. This is the second time she has had the flu shot and last year no side effects but this year has been rough on her. About 6 hours after she got the shot she started to run a fever of 102.7. That night she woke up screaming at 1 and wouldn't go back to sleep until 5 am then woke up at 8:30 am and has been a walking zombie ever since. She won't sleep for more than 10 minutes at a time then she wakes herself up by trembling and being scared. She has been acting very delirious. We have been giving her childrens advil and tylenol but it doesn't seem to bring the fever down very much. Tonight I was laying with her in bed and she woke up suddenly and jumped screaming in terror and didn't recognize me. It took Aaron and I a while to calm her down. That is when we called the doctor for the second time today. They told us to bring her in. I keep trying to tell myself that she will be okay, she just needs to sleep. I hope that when they get home her fever will be gone and she will go right to sleep. I pray that she is resting right now. It is so hard for me to see her this way because she is usually so lively and curious about everything and so happy. She is not herself at all today.
I've decided I won't be giving my kids flu shots anymore.

Just got a text saying they are coming home. They have no answers but are making an appointment for her to see the doctor tomorrow.

Pray that she will get better!
