So Nora has had a fever for a week now. It hovers around 101 but goes down to 99 and up to 102. We went to the Dr. on Thurs. and no ear infection. I had to try to get a urine sample (urinary tract infection) but no luck. (they give you this bag to stick to her to try to catch some pee) Didn't work.

Then she seemed better on Fri. and we actually saw another Dr. for a consultation for vaccines. He will separate the MMR for her and sees a lot of kids with special needs. He has experience with kids who have IS, Agenesis of the corpus callosum and cysts. She still had no ear infection.

So Sat I went back to get more pee bags and got a little sample of course the clinic is closed by noon. So I have to keep it in the fridge. But today she still has a temp of 101. There is an after hours clinic at the children's hospital. They will probably give her a catheter to get some urine. Not fun. But a week of fever is nuts. AND Emma has a bday party today so Alex will have to bring Nora by himself. UGGGGG.

Why does this always happen to poor Norsie. Nothing is ever easy. She is going to hate being held down and have a catheter put in. but I don't think there is any other way to see if she has an infection.

Emma seems to like kindergarten although it is hard to get any info from her. Hopefully she'll make some new friends soon and feel like part of her new school (me too!).

Thanks for checking in
