lolly is sick.

she woke up yesterday morning at 2 a.m. with a fever that felt like close to 104 (why torture a sick kid with a cold thermometer? just give them tylenol and cuddle them against your cool skin). tossed and turned the rest of the night; i took her to the recliner by 2:30 to let DH sleep.

she felt ooky yesterday and had lots of runny nose. kept giving tylenol by the clock to keep her a little comfortable.

so i emailed work and said i'd be in late, sick baby, up all night and such. got on, no work, kept checking back and typing the account i hate that had a few reports on it.

DH calls me around noon and says "how are you enjoying your day off?"

i'm scheduled to work this weekend so i get tues. and wed. off. completely forgot.

emailed work and said "just kidding! i WON'T be back today! hahahahaha." they were very amused. at least i didn't forget until sunday evening, like i did a couple of months ago. eek!

last night we both slept well; she slept a good 12 hours and is feeling better, temp closer to 100 before i gave her medicine this morning. praise be! and i didn't try to go to work.

hehe ... if I were doing the rotation thing, I'd have to put it on my calendar or I'd be doing the same thing every month.

glad she's feeling better.

I'm sorry she's sick but glad she's feeling better.

Hehe, poor kid, but yay for an unrealized day off! Although I'm sure it would have been nicer to not have to worry about checking it a million times that day... Glad to hear she's on the mend!
