F.E.V.E.R.

Isabelle is down with fever since Thursday night.  I am praying she recovers soon and she will be back to the usual active and cheeky self in no time.  I miss her naughty-ness (is there such word?) and I miss having her playing with her toys and chasing the dogs and the duck.  She causes no fuss.  Other than having to hold her down for her medications, she clings on to me most of the time. 

This episode lead me to get to know about Mr Fever and my discovery only amaze me even more!  Our God is not only wonderful but clever and thoughtful!  Look at how He makes FEVER works for all of us.  I can't help but to be in awe of His creation.  Who on earth could have created anything like our human body to be so 'automatic' but God?

"Fever is not an illness. Far from being an enemy, it is an important part of the body's defense against infection. Many infants and children develop high fevers with minor viral illnesses. While a fever signals to us that a battle might be going on in the body, the fever is fighting for the person, not against.

Fever is an important part of the body's defense against infection. Most bacteria and viruses that cause infections in humans thrive best at 98.6°F. Raising the body temperature a few degrees can help the body fight the infection. In addition, a fever activates the body's immune system to make more white blood cells, antibodies, and other infection-fighting agents. "


But anyway, fever... please do go away as soon as you finish fighting all the viruses or bacterias and whatnots.  Thank you.
