Near the end?

Well it is hump day, and the week has been from hell. Sunday Pyper and Lance were REALLY sick. Both ended up staying home Monday, therefore I made it to work. Pyper is not any better. Here fever yesterday was 103.6 - I could have cried. That is scary and dangerous. I took her to the doctor and he said she has rosieollia (sp), basically a virus. A virus that causes a small rash (check), a high fever (check), and dry patchy skin (check). He indicated this should last 4 to 7 days. Yesterday was day 4 and today is day 5 - this morning she had 102.1 fever. Still way to high for a two year old.
My sassy two year old is down and out, she is not eating. Actually she has not eaten anything to speak of in three days. I am worried and sick to my stomach over it all. Luckily she IS drinking. She is drinking alot, water, juice, milk (when she does not have a fever).
I continue to keep her close, and that means in my bed, so I can wake her up every 4 hrs to give her the much needed drugs.
Aside from me her next source of comfort is Shreik. We watch Shriek 3 to 4 times a day. After this sickness is over, I will burn the DVD. She is obsessed with Shreik and I am tired of the big green ogre. Why are we not watching Bambi, Cinderella, or Snow White....no my kids prefer the ear wax, big green guy. Well at least it provides her some source of comfort for now.
I am ready for everyone to start feeling well. Keeping our fingers crossed this will be our last day.
