Tuesday around 5:00 Sawyer went from acting like he was on his death bed with the flu to all the sudden starting to act completely normal. It was right about the time Andrew got home from work and we were both so confused. The timeline went about like this...

  • Tuesday, 12:00 A.M. to 7:30 A.M. crying off and on
  • 8:00 took temperature and with tylenol in his system, he had a 103 degree fever
  • 8:05 called the doctor
  • 9:30 at the doctors office with a lethargic, whimpering, sleepy, high fevered baby
  • 10:30 tested positive for the flu, doctor said it will definitely be a LOOONGG week for us. Told us it was at the very beginning of the flu since he hadn't shown any other symptoms yet and the fever had just started so she told us to be prepared for a needy, sick baby for about 6-9 days!
  • 11:00-3:00 still high fever and baby boy slept for about four hours off and on on me. 
  • 4:30 he starts chippering up a bit and started to play
  • 5:00 had a bottle and I noticed his fever had gone away
  • 5:30-8:30 laughed, played, ate and went to bed like an angel
  • Slept all night!
  • Wednesday morning until now has had no fever and has acted completely NORMAL! 
All I can say is the Lord can heal! Thanks to yall's prayers and a lot of my own prayers, my son seriously is completely fine! The Lord's power of healing is the only way to explain it because even the nurse was confused. I called to see if there was such a thing as a false positive flu test and she said, NO. So even though we are all confused we are all SOOO THRILLED! Now that it has almost been 48 hours with no fever I am going to resume normal life and head to Little Rock tomorrow! YAY!!! Thank you so much if you sent up a prayer for my family, IT WORKED!

On top of it all, it is 65 degrees here and absolutely PERFECT weather! So me and little man have been taking advantage hanging out on the deck today. Life is GOOD!
