Home update

It's hard to believe we have been home 3 days already. It all feels like a blur. We are slowly adjusting back to Illinois time. Addison has still been running a fever off and on. We took her to the dr. on Thursday, and of course that was the one day she wasn't running a fever. We took her this morning, for a quick nurse visit, to read a result from a test on Thursday. Our dr. happened to see us, and when I told him about her fever, he immediately started making calls, getting results from tests, running more tests, and finally sent us to the hospital for a stat chest x-ray. So far all of her tests have come back normal, and she doesn't have an ear infection. He is starting her on an antibiotic this afternoon, even while we wait on a few more test results. Luckily, she has adjusted pretty quickly to IL time, and slept for 12 hours straight last night. But she is also sleeping a lot during the day, I guess that goes along with the fever.
She does still have her "happy times", and she makes us laugh and love her over and over. I am posting a funny picture with BaBa (daddy) and Riley. Talk about having boys wrapped around her little finger! She loves to play and pull their hair!
I'm hoping to be able to post again with good news, and no more fever!! Thanks for checking in!

I'm sure she is loving all the new toys, and will even moreso when the fever goes away. We will be praying for strong health.

Fill your days with simplicity, rest, and grace. Anything else can wait.

Be blessed!
