the phantom fever

Friday afternoon Lance woke from nap and felt warm, I didn't think too much of it.  He didn't eat much dinner and after Jeff tried to get him to eat it all came back up.  I decided then to take his temperature and sure enough he had a fever.  With the vomit incident at dinner I was expecting the worse, but it never came.  Jeff may have been right and the vomit was just the result of Lance's really good gag reflex.  So Friday night we gave him some Motrin and put him to bed.  Next morning still had a fever and was quite pathetic so more Motrin.  A couple of hours later he was back to his old self and fever was gone.  Strange.
Yesterday Lily woke up from nap and felt warm, took her temperature and sure enough she had a fever.  Gave her some Motrin and didn't think much of it.  Some time in the wee hours of the morning she woke up and she was burning up, I thought for sure her temperature was going to be 104 or 5, but it was only 102.  Gave her more Motrin and got her back to sleep.  This morning, though I didn't take her temperature she felt fine and acted fine, assuming she is better.
So both kids came down with some random virus which has resulted in us having a pajama party day today, the kids are still in their pjs and me in my sweats and we are just taking it easy, no reason to go out on this cold day, we are relaxing and hopefully get healthy until the next round of illness hits us, since it is the season for sharing all kinds of things.
