Okay, we'd better go to the Emergency Room.

Without fail, anytime one of my children becomes a little too ill for my comfort, it's between 5:00 pm Friday evening and midnight on Sunday. The viruses that visit our home do not keep doctors' office hours.

And this weekend was no different. Sunday evening at around 8 pm, her temperature would not go below 103ºF (39.5ºC), but more than that, her breathing was very, very rapid and shallow and her heart was beating like she was running a marathon.

Okay, pack her up: I'm going to the ER.

Good thing, too. Her blood oxygen levels were pretty low.

After a hospital stay of two nights, she's back and doing much, much better. And antagonizing and teasing her brother to no end. Yep, she's pretty much back to her old self. Welcome home, babe.

Oh my god, how scary!

I know how you felt. Do you remember when Sonja had the kissing disease last year? We were in the exactly same situation. High temperature, shallow breathing, "running" heart and she suddenly couldn't see anymore. Everything was black.

I'm sooo glad Anna is feeling better now !!!!!!

What is going on out there in Ca?

Little Anna in that big bed looks veryyyy scary!

Good she's feeling better.

We have yet to see an ER from the inside, and trust me when I tell you that I am very grateful for that.

Sasha is already scared just thinking about a hospital.

Give Anna our love and tell her to start eating better so her little body gets lots of good stuff....smile.
