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.
