Yesterday I posted a perky blog about finding the good within the bad. Today, however, I am not nearly so happy. I am beyond sick of someone in our house not feeling well. Brady is still not well. I called the nurse line today after he got another fever. She recommended I head to Meritcare Fastrack (sp?) to have Brady checked. In her words, "You will not have any fun at the Pediatric Walk In today." After Brady took a couple of measly naps, I took him. Thad doesn't get as worried as I do, but even he agreed that for my own piece of mind I should. Guess what? The Fastrack doesn't take kids under eighteen months! She did check his ears and listen to his breathing though. Both ears were red (only one was red Wednesday), and his breathing is okay.
I know something isn't getting better though, because I can just feel it. Tonight he woke up screaming after an hour. He hasn't done that since Wednesday night. So we will see what tonight/tomorrow brings.
Back to my point though, it just plain sucks to have sick kids. The worrying, wiping, worrying about work, sub plans, the doctor, if I am overreacting, and getting crabby all the while.
Let's hope tomorrow is a better day.
