I have to say that I am very proud of Emily but not just for doing a great job. I am proud of her for not giving up because I would have. She was determined to use each competition she didn't place in and each disappointment to better herself and try again. Due to her determination and hard work she succeeded and reached her goal of being Dallas Teen USA. Now Emily will be sponsored to go to Texas teen in November and obtain her goal of getting in the top 15 and maybe even Texas Teen USA. I say we all road trip!
I think one of the cutest sights this weekend was when we looked up and Emily's cousin Faith that competed with her was bawling because Emily won. She was so happy for her the tears just flowed.
Unfortunately when Emily and I got home Jude didn't look that well to me. He was pale and restless so I took his temp and it was 99.3. I gave him some Motrin and let the night nurse know. I heard Jude's alarms go off throughout the night. I got up about 6am to check on Jude and he was burning up to the touch. I took his temp and under his arm it was 101.7. So I again gave him Motrin but then his heart rate got out of control due to the fever and it spiked to over 200. I got some wet rags and more to try to bring it down and gave him some Morphine. Eventually it went into the 160's so I felt comfortable enough to lay back down for awhile. When I was leaving for work he still had a low grade temp and he looked very pale but he was smiling at me. If he is responsive during a temp that's good. So I know Charlotte will work with him today and I am sure Hospice will go by to check on him and see what they think the course of action should be if any. Hopefully he is feeling better soon.
