Right before bed last night, I took my temperature once again & almost fell over from shock when I saw a reading of 98.6! Granted I had taken some medicine with "fever reducing" benefits just a few hours before when my temperature was at 101.4, but I had been doing this for a whole week with that same temp & it would only drop to about 100.5 maybe 99.4 if I was lucky. (Yes, I take my temperature constantly when I am sick~I'm slightly obsessive about it ;) I knew it was just a temporary reprieve & that by morning it would be a different story.

Anyway, when I awoke this morning & I took my temperature & then I took it again & then I almost fell over...97.8! I only wanted 98.6, but 97.8-Fantastic! I just prayed that it would stay that way because at the school where I work the rule is 24 hours fever free without medication & I really didn't want to have to drag myself into school this weekend to plan for this coming week still being sick.

So I am proud to announce that I have finally hit that mark & am now 24 hours fever free! (And the snot is starting to slow down & breathing has become much easier too-all in such a short span of time!)

(I was going to end with a video here, but my husband is still working on our new hard drive so you'll just have to wait too I guess! :)

What a relief. Oh, and I'm completely obsessed with checking the kiddos' temps sick or not.
