Sophie slept a lot yesterday, and I just figured she was getting ready to grow, or something, since she had no other symptoms other than a slightly irritated bottom, which I figured came from the yoghurt I gave her. (Organic, goatsmilk, w/ blueberries.)
Anyway, I gave her her bath, cuddled, read, sang her songs, she crashed, I went downstairs.
An hour later I went up and she was red hot.
I took her temp, and it was 103.2. My limit on fevers before I break out the big guns (Tylenol) is 102. I don't have a reason, that's just where I stop feeling comfy with letting her body do it's thing. Feel free to try to talk me around, cause frankly, I feel like I should either buy into the entire notion of trusting that her body knows what it's doing or not, and not muck around with it at all, but there you go, I am a bundle of inconsistencies.
She is still not showing any other symptoms, her bottom is cleared up completely, and this morning when I took her temp again it was 102.1
I'm alternating pulsatilla, chamomile, Ferr-Phos, and echinacea both topically and orally.
I HATE this.
