Well, after I administered the Tylenol, Bella’s fever went down fairly quickly and she really perked up. She spent some time eating frozen grapes on the couch and drinking ice water while watching Madagascar and I was preparing to settle in to sick-nurse mode for the long haul. But before the movie was over she was up and running around, following me to the kitchen and asking for crackers and cinnamon toast. I kept waiting all night for the fever and crankiness to return as the tylenol wore off, but they never did. Today she seems her usual self.
I’ve heard of 24-hour bugs but I guess this was a 3 hour flu. All I can say is kids are amazingly resilient.
