No fun being sickie…

Posted on: August 24, 2012

So two weeks before my Little M turns a year old, she gets sick.

When Hubby brought her home from my mother-in-law’s house Tuesday night, Hubby says that his mom noticed that she seems to be coming down with something.  Her nose was running non-stop.

It really looked like a faucet.

During that night, I woke up to her tossing and turning, as usual.  She usually manages to find her way to odd spots on the bed during the night.

I reach over to pick her up and bring her back to my side when I realize she’s burning up.

We had the warm air vaporizer on in our bedroom because of her runny nose, so I thought she may be warm because of that.

I take her to the living room to cool her off a little and realize that she was still warm.  I take her temperature under her arm pit and it goes shooting up, so I go to take her temperature rectally for confirmation.


Yikes!  She wakes up during my temperature taking and is not a happy camper.  Poor Little M.

I give her Little Fevers fever reducer, much to her fighting and crying, and wait for the fever to go down.

The next morning I make an appointment with her pediatrician and it turns out she has an ear infection.

Poor baby.

The bright side (is there really one?) is that she’s sick 2 weeks before her birthday.  That gives her plenty of time to recover.

Lucky for her, she’s young and recovers quickly.  In fact, she was up and about all day yesterday, like the sickies never happened!

Gotta love that about kids.
