Tonight there was no smile on my baby's face. She is miserable. So far she has gotten up 3 times tonight out of bed so I could blow her nose, wipe her eyes and put some vicks under her nose. I gave her a dose of Benedryl before I put her to bed tonight. It was the last dose. When I get up in the morning, I will get dressed and go get her medicine before she wakes up. She has both a stopped and runny nose, itchy watery eyes, and a cough, slight fever. I been making her drink iced water, hold a cool rag on forehead. I don't want to give her any Tylenol, because I don't want to over medicate her. She's so tired, and can barely keep her eyes open when I am blowing her nose, or rather when she's blowing and I am wiping. I just hate it when she is so sick. I know it's going to be a long night tonight, and she'll be waking me up a few times. But it's all part of being her Mom, right? She was fine until earlier tonight. I believe she caught a cold from being out in the sun yesterday in the pool over her sister's house, then going indoors, wrapped in a towel and still wearing wet bathing suit in airconditioning to eat lunch, then back outside again. She's not use to that. So, the beach trip is off, for tomorow. I'm keeping her in the house, and on the couch with her pillow and ducky blanket she cuddles with when she is sick. Could I ask you all to say a little prayer for her? I feel so bad for her. Take care everyone.
Love to all................Cindy
