Maria woke up in the middle of the night coughing and stuffed up. This morning around 11:15, I noticed her eye was goopy. Of course our pediatrician’s office closed at noon! When I talked to the nurse she seemed to think I should try to wait it out. But it was just goopier by 1, so we went to Urgent Care. It’s a different clinic than our normal pediatrician, but it was a good experience and we got eye drops. And she’ll have been on the meds for 24 hours before her party, so she shouldn’t be contagious any more by then!
We did have to miss the family get together at my brother’s. My aunt is in town from Chicago for the party, but we don’t want to spread the germs. And now I won’t be up too late working on the Elmo cake!
