Whelp, we’re on day 4 of fever at our house!.. Poor Kaylor, my heart just breaks for her.. She hasn’t been feeling *too* bad, but she’s now missed her holiday/winter program for school that was last night.. That has definitely had her upset.. She keeps making us promise her that we’ll buy the dvd that they record of it.. She tried Soooo hard yesterday morning to convince us that she could go to school.. (all the while, w/ a fever).. She told me how pretty I was, how I’ll always be her pretty mommy, and alllll these nice things.. lol.. The compliments were wonderful, but unfortunately they didn’t get her to school.. I took her to the dr. and they can only confirm that she does have a viral infection.. What, they don’t know.. They drew blood from her, which was an ordeal in itself.. (**Note to self, if the person getting ready to draw blood from your child seems a bit fidgety and nervous and your child is already scared outta their wits.. ask for a long timer).. I didn’t want to embarrass the girl, but she did a horrible job.. Got the needle in and had to keep wiggling & digging it around, because she couldn’t find the vein.. Even yelled for help for another nurse.. Poor Kaylor was crying hard.. I promised her that it normally does NOT hurt that bad, and unfortunately that nurse just didn’t do a very good job.. Needless to say, she’s not too keen on the idea of getting blood drawn in the future.. yikes!.. Kaylor said, “It MUST have been her first day”.. lol..
So, we have been disinfecting our house like crazy.. I do have to say though, that it thank goodness is not more like the flu.. With all those fun symptoms like throwing up, etc. etc. Erik was home for 2 days, I was home yesterday and today, and Mamaw is coming at lunchtime to take over, so I can head into the office for a little bit.. Keep your fingers crossed that this “virus” is scootin‘ it’s way out! =)
