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.
