Fevers suck.

I publicly admitted to my google obsession in this post.

I can't help it.

I google everything. If I don't know the answer to a question someone asks... "Hold on. Let me google it."

Google is my crossword puzzles BFF.

If google were a person, I'd totally marry him and have a million of his babies. Well, that is a bit extreme. I would definitely marry him though.

Emma woke up the other morning with a fever.

Ugh. Fevers. Words cannot describe my hate of fevers.

They are scary. I start googling and get all kinds of scary messages... SIDS, death, seizures.

Other than the fever, Bug acted fine. She ate fine. She even pooped and had tee-tee diapers. I mean, the kid was acting fine. She was a little weak eyed and not on top of her game but totally fine. I kept googling.

By the end of the day, I was scared sleepless.

I kept getting up to check on Buggy.


101.6 HOLY JESUS. What... who... RYAN... it can't... get me a... A cold wash cloth, a dose of Tylenol, and a little rick-rocking later, she was all good.

I sat there watching her as if she was going to sprout wings, grow an elephant trunk and be known as the "winged elephant kid." {I'm pretty sure google said it could happen.}

When she woke in the morning, she was burning up again. Mainly her head, hands, and knees. Google, can knees have fever? What does this mean?

What... RYAN... whoops, he's not home... it can't... get me a... who am I talking to? Cold wash cloth, Tylenol, and a little googling later, she was all good. Google of course told me otherwise. After that last dose of Tylenol, we have been fever free. Thank God!

Having a fever is super stressful.

As for Emma? She's back to her old self again. She just ate a three day old pea out of her highchair.

As my MIL always says, "She must be teething." It is her answer for EVERYTHING!

Oh I bet that is so scary! I was freaking out this morning because Hayden had so many boogers in her nose. I think I better get some chill pills on hand for when something more serious happens! I hope her fever stays away!!

The hubs doesn't allow me to google anymore symptoms. I am not allowed on WebMD, lol. Seriously.

Fevers are the absolute worst. I hate when my boy have fevers. I worry non-stop, and I act like it's the end of the world, too. Blah. And stop googling medical stuff... everything health related on google is bad! Super scary and makes us worry way more than we have to!
