Sophie at the doctors this morning
Sick but happy yesterday morning enjoying some fnger painting
Sick but still wanted to wear her "dress, shoes, stockings"
Well, we were having a pretty wonderful week - princess tea on Monday, library on Tuesday, playgroup on Wednesday, drumming class on Thurs... and then Thurs. afternoon I saw it. The shiny rim of a runny nostril. I was sort of hoping and praying that it was nothing. Just the wintery walk we took in the snow flurries making her nose run. But then thurs. night more wet nose and no fight at all going to bed. Lately, that is definitely NOT a good sign. In the middle of the night Thurs. she woke up vomiting in her crib. We cleaned her up, gave her some tylenol for a slight fever and she went back to bed fairly easily. But Friday morning upon waking she definitely had a cold. The real deal - runny nose, cough, fever. We called the pediatrician's office and they said it sounded like the stomach bug that was going around and unfortunately we just had to wait it out. She seemed pretty peppy all things consiered for most of the morning but after waking from her pm nap yesterday she was definitely going downhill. Fever was higher, she didn't want to do much and was obviously VERY uncomfortable. Last night was pretty awful. She went right into her bed - no books, no drama, no stall tactics. And woke up every hour, all night long. She was soooo uncomfortable. So miserable. Feverish, congested, coughing. We tried the vaporizer, we tried no vaporizer. We put pillows on each side of her crib so that her nose might better drain. She had probably the worst night of sleep of her life and woke up just crying and miserable all night long. So, today we went to the doctors to make sure we didn't have something else going on (ear infection, etc). Sophie was a real champ at the doctors and even got to wear a special gown to keep her warm while she waited for the doctor. She checked out fine and so we're just dealing with a bad cold thankfully. Hopefully she will get a better night's sleep tonight.
