Well, Double A is very sick. She started a fever Saturday and still is not doing well. In an effort to avoid the Mother of the Year prize I did not take her to the doctor until today (Wednesday). She had been feverish for three days but the doc can't do anything for fever and she had no other complaints. I did call the nurse line and they said unless her fever spikes again to tough it out. Well, late Tuesday night she started wailing about her ear hurting ad feeling like it had a bubble in it. The good news was she had been fever free for 8+ hours. Well, the doc said her ear was "horrible" and her throat had pus and her eye was infected and needed drops. She had woken up with it looking swollen and red. She sleeps alot and moans and wails even more. We have gone through a box of kleenex for the runny nose and she has not been in school all week. I am seriously hoping that 24 hours of antibiotics will drastically improve the situation. I am supposed to go out of town this weekend by myself and Husband #1 was going to take the kids to his parents house for the weekend. He will not be doing that if she is not improved.
Maybe it is wrong of me but the wailing and moaning really get on my nerves. I know she feels horrible but that really does not help and grates on the nerves. I am hoping this is some result of my feelings of frustration at not being able to make her feel better and not from some horrible part of me that is just straight up irritated with my sick child.
