All better!

After a tense day yesterday Asa woke up this morning feeling more like himself. It's amazing how his pain effected the whole house, his singing voice today brought the smiles out again! He was very feverish all day yesterday and very feverish all night long, though I gave him Tylenol it seemed to offer no relief at all. And I worried, oh how I worried about him. I don't currently have a thermometer, but I'm sure that I only would have worried more if I could have known what his body was really doing. I had to remind myself over and over that if he doesn't seem overly sick, then he isn't sick. I got some homeopathic stuff today so we'll see what that does, but he's had a good day so far. I have such a tendency toward self doubt, I long for a community of others to bolster my confidence in myself and our body's ability to heal itself. You guys are the closest thing I have. Thanks a lot to all of you for your suggestions and prayers. Mr. G and I both prayed for him last night and I think out of everything we tried, that offered the most help.

  2. He's such a sweet looking little man. He has so much hair! Victoria won't ever grow any, I don't think. I'm so glad he's better.

  5. Glad things are better at your house. I really hate those fevers, they scare mothers!
    He sure has grown, I have not seen a picture of the little man for awhile. He is a cutie.

  6. I too have to keep reminding myself that the body is perfectly capable of managing itself 98% of the time.... And I'm even a microbiologist and know all the nuts and bolts of the immune system!
