Her cough was sounding better by Tuesday evening, but her fever was through the roof and she seemed to be in a lot pain….. her face was very red and her eyes looked really bad, she cried often and would not sleep. We were worried that she had something other than the Croup so we headed back to the doctors for visit number 2 on Wednesday.
Unfortunately we wasted a trip….The doc said it was just the flu and there was nothing he could prescribe….he said it just had to run its course and that we should continue to pump her up with liquids and motrin for the fever, aches, and pains.
This is the longest Sarah has ever been sick…..she usually bounces back very quickly, but this virus has really knocked her down. Right now she is still running a fever and not keeping food down.
Pat and I have not been getting much sleep and we are both starting to feel like we are coming down with it too…..Right now my glands feel like they are the size of golf balls and I am running a low grade fever…..
I think it is safe to say that we will continue to be housebound for the next couple of days until everyone is back in good health.
For once I am glad Nick is with his Dad…..hopefully he will remain virus free.
Not sure if I will post again before Saturday….Just in case, I wanted to wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day…..try not to eat too much chocolate:)
