Again …

My daughter will miss school AGAIN today.

I received a call Tuesday around noon stating that our Princess had a fever of 102.  I suddenly became a Nascar driver — pushing 50 mph in the 45 mph zones.  Yes, that is daring for me – ha.

I brought Ibuprofen with me and gave her the 7.5 ml dose she required while in the school parking lot.

Once we made it home, she was fine.  Seriously — no more fever for the rest of the day or night.  But Wednesday at 9:30am the fever started again with a vengeance.    I couldn’t get it below 100 the entire day or evening.   Nothing makes a Mom feel worse than seeing her baby suffer.   But even in the midst of it all, she ate and drank which was a good thing.

By Thursday morning, we were at the doctor’s office to hear the good news that her ears and lungs were clear.  She is a healthy, strong little girl.  No more fever!  She is fine and I am one grateful Mommy!

She did her school work yesterday and prepared for what was to be her first day back today!

As I gave her a bath this morning she decided she wanted to wait until Monday since she has a slight cough.  So … here we sit AGAIN today.

    I love this tiny, real snippet of life. “Nothing makes a Mom feel worse than seeing her baby suffer.” I thought as a pediatric nurse that I’d be tough when my little girlie got sick, but that’s just so true. You’d do anything just to make it better, wouldn’t you?

    Kids seem to get sick all the time. But I’m sure your mama heart hurts when your girl is sick. We are forever telling the kids in our class to cover their coughs and wash their hands. :)

    Blessings and love to mommy,
