Sick Kid

Chatty Cathy has been sick for three days ... got a call from school on Tuesday saying she had a fever. Second to last day of school and she goes home sick ... still had a fever yesterday so I worked from home with her .... still has a fever this morning and threw up her Motrin ... I kept thinking her fever would break but so far no such luck. I told Mr. ESPN (asked) him to take her to the doctor this morning since he is working from home today. We have a fabulous pediatrician's office with walk in hours from 8:00 to 9:00 (which we have used numerous times). I asked him if he wanted me to come home to take her and he said he could take care of it. He just doesn't get that mom guilt of not being there ... I know he can handle it but I still feel guilty, although since I am taking tomorrow off I really need to get some stuff done here at work (yes I know I am once again blogging at work). Ah the guilt of motherhood!

So far Bia hasn't shown any signs the sickness yet but she was still sleeping when I left the house this morning. Not a good time to get sick in our house - we have a neighborhood block party tomorrow night, Grandma and Grandpa arrive on Saturday, Birthday party on Sunday and old neighbors visiting from Kansas on Sunday to swim ... I hope she feels better soon and that the rest of us don't get it - although I love snuggling with her and feeling needed.

Update - Mr. ESPN just called and said Chatty Cathy ate some toast and is acting fine ... playing with Bia. Now he is wondering if he should take her in or not ... it is so hard to know what to do and I don't want our pediatrician thinking we are hypochondriacs!

There's NO time to be sick! I hope she feels better soon. Give her a kiss for me!

So hard to deal with! I swear by Feverall.....suppositories for when they're throwing up. They have helped us dozens of times with fever and no way to keep the meds down.
