My Little Sickie

Lily has a cold. A rather bad one. She hasn't had a good night's sleep since Friday night. You guessed it, I haven't had a good night's sleep since Friday night either. It started with a croupy cough. And after her coughing fits she would cry to me "Mommy hurts." The doctor said she looked fine except her throat was a little red. It then moved into a congested cough with lots of head congestion. Now she is pulling on her ear. She has also intermittently had a low grade fever. She is eating less, super cranky (who can blame her!) and just generally not my spunky, spirited little kid. I just want to cry for her. And I'll be honest...for myself a little.

When your child is sick, there is nothing worse in the world.

I'm so sorry Lily hasn't been feeling well and you both aren't getting the rest you need! It's so hard to watch the little ones suffer and then our patience is tested b/c they are so miserable. We're fighting something over here too...Owen hasn't been himself and he's had a low grade fever since last night.
I pray for rest and recovery for you and Lily!

Thanks Kelly! Hope Owen feels better too! I definitely think something is going around. I just hope L is better for Bible study on Friday. I was/am so looking forward to it!
