Elsie update and two month check-up


We went to see the doctor yesterday and all looks great. Seems as though the weekend scare was a simple virus. The reason they kept us at the hospital for so long is because they are required to figure out what is causing the fever in a baby under 60 days old. They have linked unidentified fevers to SIDS and don't take fevers lightly. And since Elsie didn't have any signs of a virus for the first day and a half, they had to run tests to figure things out. Finally on Saturday she got a viral rash, which was great news. That gave them a reason for the fever. They kept us that last day just waiting for all the test results to come back. Anyways, all is good and she is healthy. Very healthy in fact! She was in the 90th percentile for weight (12 lbs 8 oz) and in the 75th for height (23 "). Her head is in the 50 percentile. So, all is great. She is a chub, and a cutie pie.
