It was a long night!
Kacey went to bed very fussy. She was getting really stuffy and then she had a breakdown over Herbie. "Mommy, he won't lay right!" He was in her pocket of her jammies and so we finally got him taken care of (which I'll post about later). She was asleep by 10pm...I set the alarm for 2am...but something told me I was in for a long night! Frankie agreed to do the 2am check but that didn't happen without waking me up! Kacey was crying with her throat and he brought her in to me and handed me the flashlight for me to see if it was red....LMAO! Ummmm ok...so yes she had a sore throat, she was feeling miserable and all she did was cry. I got her back to bed and settled her in with a glass of ice water. Sugar check... 146. Hmm well at least Herbie was doing his job! Just as I finally dozed back off...3:25am... *tap* *tap* *tap* Daddy? Daddy Are you there? LOL Kacey was talking in the baby monitor and Frankie never budged. I waited to see what she would do. (whisper) Daddy? DADDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! When she yelled in the baby monitor, he came to his feet! (hee-hee) I layed there quietly to see how he handled it. He stumbled to her room and I could hear them mumbling followed by footsteps. Yep, she was back in my room. I got her calmed down and walked her back to her bed. I drug myself back to bed. I layed back down and let out a huge sigh.... 3:45am. By 5:15am, she was back up again and this time she ended up in my bed and we kicked Daddy out to the couch (LOL!) I knew she wouldn't be going to school today so I covered her back up and she went on to sleep. I got her an appointment at 10:45am. Diagnosis....the start of a sinus infection! He gave her a prescription for Zithromax so hopefully she'll start feeling better soon! She's gone back to sleep for now.
Grrrrrr! This just pisses me off because she was just sick a few weeks ago. Every single day when I take her to school, I watch parents bring their kids into school or the kids get off the bus and they are sick enough that they should have been kept home. Parents send their kids to school with everything from sniffles and coughs to kids getting off the buses with fevers and vomiting. This makes me so mad because it's kids like this that expose my child to germs that could be avoided! Just last week, a parent brought her child into the school and you could look at the child and see the child was sick. Cheeks were flush and I could almost bet you the child had a fever then. The Mom made it a point to tell other parents standing there that her child was sick but she had to go to work and for them to just call her if the child got worse. WHAT?!?! By 11am, the child had a 103 fever and went home. Ummm...aren't they contagious when they have the fever? UGH! Don't get me wrong, I know that germs are out there...my child is going to get sick...but I keep my child HOME when she's sick. But then, we're the parents to get the letter telling us our daughter is in jeopardy of failing because she's missed 11 days of school. I know we are exempt from this but the reason she missed those days was from illness and I was being a responsible parent and keeping her away from other kids while she was sick! So it's a catch 22...either you send them to school when they are sick and they get counted present for the day....OR....you keep them home and risk them failing the year!
