The next day her fever stayed at around 38 degrees all day and the next day she had no fever at all. But she was still very miserable. On Sunday night she basically screamed blue murder all night. She refused bottles and i just couldn't calm her down. By 6am after i had finally gotten to her sleep after another one of her screaming fits, it hit me that she was always pulling on or putting her hands over her ears and that she screamed worse if i laid her a certain way on me in the rocking chair. I started to wonder if she might have an ear infection. When she woke up later on that morning she started out happy, but within half an hour was a hysterical screaming mess again. Knowing she reacts to all antibiotics i didn't even want to bother with a doctor. I used some amazing onion juice and put a few drops in both ears. Within 5 minutes the screaming stopped and she was touching her ear like it was brand new. :) She was back to herself after that and although we had a lot of wake ups the next night from coughing, it seemed she was finally better.
It seems weird that i am thankful she was just sick and not reacting to the canola oil. But food is so important to us and every fail is devastating! Colds and flus come and go within days but if a food is a fail she will lose it for a long time! Since her cold went away we have returned to the canola oil without any problems and have classed it as a pass!!! Yippee!!! We have now started spinach as of yesterday but this one isn't looking too promising! I hope in a few days i have some good news, but i'm really not expecting it after the screaming and tummy pains we dealt with last night and this morning.
Abbey with Reuben just before our shower when
her fever was over 40 degrees
I kicked Reuben out of bed to deal with Abbey
at 4.30am after basically not sleeping for a
whole night. This is how i found them
at 8am when i got out of bed.
