My baby is sick...

It started last night. She woke up at 3 AM and wanted in bed with us.. I fed her laying down (I breastfeed) and tried to get her to go to sleep with us. We fought with her until 6 this morning. She finally started eating (actually eating) at 6 and did so until 7. We all woke up at 7:40.. I am so not used to that, and I'm sure tonight will be worse.

My poor little girl has tons and tons of boogies and she keeps sneezing her head off.. As if she doesn't hate the booger-sucker-outer thing enough.. (don't you love my terminology?) Now we have to do it like every few minutes.

We have some medicine for her, but we are running out. I called the doctor today to see if he would possibly just call in another prescription without us having to go in and see him. This was the first time I have ever done this, so I was really dreading the fact that they might say no.. But they didn't! I was so thankful and gracious when the nurse called me back and said that they would be calling it in within the next 15 minutes.

We had planned on going to my parents house today, so we continued with those plans. She looked miserable, but my parents cheered her up and she played some... she slept some... she ate some... cried some... cried a lot... and played some more... then ate some more...

I just feel terrible for the little girl. She has not had much of an appetite (I hope this doesn't mess up my milk flow too much). Hopefully with this medicine, she will be feeling better tomorrow. Regardless, I have prepared myself for little sleep tonight. I'm hoping for more, but not counting on it. I just want my baby to feel better soon.

Oh no, that is the worst. You feel so helpless when they are sick. Love, hugs, snuggles, & patience is all they need to help make the sickness a little more bareable. I hope you get some rest tonight!
