More Sickness

My poor baby is still sick. It seems she can't get a break. She went from stomach flu to a cold and respiratory infection.

Last night, she kept waking up and crying. Finally about 4 am (after I had another bout with vomiting!), we got her comfortable enough to sleep. She has had a really runny nose, but I was more concerned about her breathing. She was breathing hard and heavy. Plus she had a really nasty cough.

So I took her to immediate care today. We got there at noon, and what a zoo. Alice did really well, all things considered. We waited a little over an hour before they called us back. Towards the end there she started throwing her books and a toy. The nurse made a comment about her "looking like she feels fine". Yeah, whatever lady. If you only knew my daughter. She normally would have been climbing and running everywhere. Plus you can look at her eyes and tell how bad she feels. You know that glossed over look.

The doctor checked her out and said she has a cold/respiratory infection and bronchitis. So we got her an antibiotic. Hopefully she will be feeling better in another day or two.

I am enjoying the cuddle time while it lasts :) and the naps!

I really hate when nurses or doctors make comments that your kids seem healthy, yep, because taking them to a germ-infested place when healthy is what all parents want to do.

Poor thing, but atleast she has something to take and hopefully she'll be sleeping and feeling much better soon.

Oh toots - I feel your pain! Being a sick mom (esp. preggo) sucks donkey balls. I found both of my kids had a year when they were sick all the time. Then, they had the constitution of bulls!

Good luck!
