sad sick girl


I had to take Eva to the doctor yesterday. Her early bedtime was a cruel hoax, as she woke up at 10:30 p.m., wanting to get up for the day. A fever came on later in the night, and neither one of us got very much sleep.

She has a sinus infection, again. Luckily, my kids think amoxicillin is akin to a treat. She was feeling sad, but not so sad that she couldn't play in the little playhouse in the waiting room, jammies and all.

We filled her prescription, came home for a bit of lunch, and then I put her down for a nap -- doctor's orders! She slept until 5:00, oh happy day.

After 3 doses of antibiotics, she was chipper as could be this morning. When she found out that she was invited to go on a grandparents' date with the big kids to the Festival of Trees, her mood improved even more. I sure hope it lasted, otherwise it will have been a very long day for Grandma and Grandpa...

I'm so glad the doctor told her she needed to rest more, and I hope you can get some good mileage out of that from now on.

oh man- this is painful just reading about it!

sinus infections & 3 year olds shouldn't go together!

hope she sleeps tonight- and you too :)

Sick during the night is no fun. On Thursday night I was supposed to go to a baby shower. I left, but it turns out I wrote the address down wrong, so I came home. It was a good thing I did. I hadn't been home for 10 minutes before Carter came out of his room complaining of a sore stomach, then he proceeded to puke all over me. ALL OVER. After he was calmed down, cleaned off and settled on the couch I jumped into the shower, and before I could get all cleaned off, Aimee started crying and Dirk went down to check on her. She'd thrown up all over her bed.

It was a long night.

I wish I'd written the address down right.

Aw, that picture of Eva is cute and pitiful all at the same time. I hope the Festival of Trees went well for her and for the grandparents!

oh, after the last couple of days, and nights, I bet you really needed that Gparents' night out!

i love that her nap was doctor's orders! did the doctor order you to take one too?

i'm glad she's feeling better, sinus infections are no fun at all. and why can't all medicine taste as yummy as amoxicillin? what yummy ingredient are all the other medicines out there missing? life as a mother would sure be better if someone could figure that out!

How unfair for you as a parent too that your kids are sick so often. I think it is just as hard on the parents as the kids, esp. when it involves getting up at night.

She looks so cute in her PJs. I am glad it was something they could treat and that she was still able to go off with the grandparents. What did you do with that kid free time?!?!

Amy said...

I was a bit surprised by how old your Eva looks in this picture. I've been a fan of your blog for a while now, and I can see so many changes in your cute family!
