Sick again...

Last night Marie woke up about 2:30 with a fever of over 102. We treated with Tylenol and Motrin and finally got it down to about 100 an hour and a half later. She slept on and off the rest of the night, and this morning the fever was back. Along with it she has a cough that's pretty junky sounding, but in her throat not her lungs. Hospice was here and checked her yesterday and her lungs are clear. We are praying that this is just a cold, Josie had been fighting one for the last week and so far it seems similar.

We ask that you pray this doesn't get more serious, after our scare with pneumonia last month it is scary to see her sick again so soon.

She's been napping most of the afternoon and we're hoping the sleep gives her some strength. The fever is running 100-102 at this point but hasn't broken yet. Because Marie's body struggles to produce enough energy to sustain her running a fever is very hard. She has no reserves to fight or to lower her temperature easily.

We'll keep you posted, and thank you so much to everyone who says a prayer for her. We've seen again and again where God listens.
