Marguerite is being healed by the Lord. That's right. We've claimed healing. She started yesterday okay and as the day progressed, she developed a fever; complained of a headache; wouldn't eat; slept all day, but fitfully, and started vomiting (her first experience ever since she stopped with the spitups) in the afternoon. Naturally, I got busy with Google and emerged out of that totally paranoid. The thing is that, my cousin Luigi has the mumps and I was watching out for its symptoms. Marguerite didn't get the MMR vaccine and since she and her Uncle Giggi played a lot together, it's totally a possibility that she could have caught it. If you already didn't know, we've decided to delay vaccination against the common childhood diseases until Marguerite is ten. We'd rather she got immunity the natural way. If by ten, she still hasn't contracted them, then we would vaccinate since older children and adults have more serious episodes of these diseases. So far, we're done with chicken pox and only have measles and mumps to go. Anyway, anytime Marguerite has a fever, I get paranoid about dengue. As I spend more time googling symptoms, my list of diseases to get paranoid about just grows longer. My initial decision was to wait until the following day to bring her to the doctor next door, but by nighttime, I couldn't stand it anymore and called my husband to come home (he was supposed to stay over at his folks' place since he hasn't had the mumps yet and until we were sure it wasn't a case of mumps, he was to stay there), so we could bring Marguerite to the emergency room. By that time, I was pretty sure it wasn't the mumps. Anyway, to keep this from turning into a novel, the doctor ruled out the mumps and the other things I was panicking over. We had Marguerite's urine and blood tested (at midnight, so it all felt very ER - Marguerite was totally cool about the finger prick and curiously watched as the lab tech squeezed blood out of it) and everything's normal (from the symptoms, the doctor had been suspecting UTI). Marguerite is still lethargic and cranky, but we're certain that she'll feel better soon. The credit goes to prayer and all the glory to God.
