It seems that my two girls are sharing, and sharing more than they should be. Yay.
Teagan now appears to have caught some of Ashlin’s croup. She had a very restless – bad – night last night. Coughing a bit. Up at least twice requesting “rock-a-me mama,” saying “I have boogers” and asking to have her nose wiped.
This morning, she was a bit warm, but it wasn’t a fever. She wasn’t hoarse, nor coughing. I had work to get done, and with one baby already staying home, she got bundled off to day care. Bad mom, that’s me!
Just after noon I received a call from the Day Care supervisor, telling me that Teagan was “not herself” and “didn’t want to talk” because her throat hurt. I will admit, I wasn’t totally surprised. I was a bit sad with myself for sending her after all.
Once we got home, Teagan didn’t want to eat, but said she was hungry. Didn’t want to nap. Her temperature was in the high 100-101 range. I did get her to eat some applesauce, and nap. Though Ashlin woke up, so I wasn’t able to get much work done at all, though I did sit in on the project’s daily afternoon conference call.
After the nap, her fever was higher, voice more hoarse. She just wanted snuggles, and was talked into some cheese, pretzels and apple cider. It is nice snuggling with her, she wants it less and less as she gets older. It would be nice, though, if she did it when she wasn’t sick.
She’s in bed now, with a dose of motrin in her, to try to keep the temp down. Hopefully, it will stay down, she won’t cough too much, and will be more her usual self tomorrow.
I can hope.
