She woke up completely fine, and then while we were on the road to a family Christmas celebration, she went down. Poor girl could barely keep her eyes open. After the 4 hour car trip she crashed in to the nearest bed. Her fever lasted two days, and with it there was a mild cough. Other than the fatigue and the fever, the cough was her only cold symptom.
