Sick Time

Last week I told a co-worker that we had all been pretty healthy this winter (with only 2 exceptions this year).  I totally jinxed it!

On Wednesday evening, Maria started exhibiting some symptoms!  Argh… but not knowing if it was a one time, ate something that disagreed with her or more, I sent her to daycare on Thursday. When I picked her up, I was informed symptoms had continued, as they did through the evening.

Friday morning (3 a.m.) I heard a whole lot of coughing/hacking followed by “MOM!”.  Poor girl had thrown up all over her bed. And was pretty freaked out about the whole thing.  Doubt she ever remembers throwing up. So after finishing that episode and getting her all cleaned up and her bed all cleaned up and starting laundry it was 4 a.m.  Luckily Maria was begging to go back to bed and luckily we have an extra lovey, so she went right back down. Fun stuff.

Saturday she was still tired, but wanted to go to the mall when we brought it up. She stayed in her stroller more than normal, but was happy to be out.

Sunday, she didn’t want to get out of bed. We decided to take her to Urgent Care, where they determined it wasn’t serious and we should just continue to monitor her.  She spent much of the day in the recliner with me.  I don’t think I’ve gotten that much cuddle time since I was on maternity leave with her!

Today, Chad is home with her, and she got herself out of bed this morning. A good sign, although she still didn’t fight naptime.

and YES, when I said she got herself out of bed, she figured out Friday morning (when I didn’t shut her bedroom door) that she didn’t need to wait for us to get out of bed in the morning or after naps!  We still have the upperhand a little, because she still has difficulty opening her door from inside by herself.  Although she just knocks and yells “Is it wake-up time?”
