Fortunately & Unfortunately

Well, let me catch you up. For those of you that didn't know, unfortunately, Juliana has not been feeling well. For actually the past 3 weeks she has just not been herself. Lots of crying and moaning like she was in pain, not sleeping well through the night, just pretty miserable. We went to the Dr. twice. The first time she said that she may be developing an ear infection so we put her on an antibiotic, thinking "Fortunately we figured it out!" But unfortunately a few days later, things were worse. So we went back to the Dr. and turns out fortunately her ear was fine but unfortunately we couldn't figure out what was wrong. So fortunately, it finally dawns on us (sadly after almost 2 weeks) that it could be her teeth. Although she is 3, she has not gotten her 2year molars. So I bravely stick my finger back there and sure enough, her gums are totally swollen. So, Whoo HOO!!! Fortunately, we cracked the case. We gave her motrin and put her to bed. Unfortunately, she woke up with 102 fever and some stomach issues. So she stayed home with daddy yesterday and continued to run some fever throughout the day. Fortunately, she actually slept all night (first time in 3 weeks) and woke up with a much lower fever and a fantastic mood. Unfortunately, Olivia woke up this morning with 102 fever and a cough that sounded like the bark of a seal.

Fortunately, both girls are drinking plenty of fluids and Livi has gotten a lot of sleep in today.

Fortunately for daddy, my girls are such good patients and fortunately for my girls, their daddy is a great nurse!


  1. Those two have have MOST fabulous hair! Hope they are on the mend soon.

  2. Boy are those girls adorable, even when they're sick!! :) So glad you have finally gotten to the bottom of it!
