Poor Bella

We've all been taking a long time to get over this cold but Bella seemed to be getting over it more quickly than Matea and I. Until Thursday night. She got out of bed at 10:00 with a 102.5 degree fever and woke up at 101 yesterday morning. She seemed to feel ok during the day but we could tell she was getting a fever again last night. Pumped her full of tylenol and she fell asleep on the couch around 7:30. Then, we woke up to her in our room at 3:00 this morning and she said she was trying to drink water but her body wouldn't stop shaking. Poor baby's fever was up to 104 degrees. We did our best to cool her down, gave her more tylenol and then put her back in bed around 4:00. Matea decided not to cut me any slack and woke up at 5:00, two hours before her normal time. Bella got up at 6:15 and her fever was at 104.2. I feel so bad for her but she seems to be holding up really well.
And before you ask why we haven't rushed her to the doctor...high fevers are very typical for Bella. She's actually been as high as 105 degrees before (her first and so far, only trip to the ER). And besides a little cough, there's really no sign of what her body is fighting so the doctors wouldn't really know what to give her medicine for anyway. So, we'll just have to wait and see.
