Hello May! What are we excited about the month of May? The last day of school! Haha. We are on a countdown already. It’s 15 days to go until the last day of the school year. My family, especially DD, is super excited. Because of this COVID-19 pandemic, our governor signed an Executive Order stating we will finish the school year at home.
We’ve been in quarantine since we got back from Oklahoma City on March 14th after purchasing a pre-owned SUV. With the states lowly re-opening, we will possibly be able to visit family and, perhaps, go to play parks or splash parks when they start to open in three weeks or so. Can’t wait to enjoy our SUV life. 🙂
We can’t wait for this pandemic to be all over. Summer break is just around the corner. We have good plans and there are lots of fun stuff to do.
Oh dear! Darling daughter has the flu. I took her to her pediatrician yesterday afternoon because she’s running fever for two days and was feeling weak. Her appetite was poor and all she wanted to do is sleep. She said she’s tired.
Good thing her doctor was able to see DD on Tuesday. I was very worried. No sleep the night before because I was monitoring her temperature.
Around 3 o’clock Monday morning I woke up needing to go and I felt DD’s hand on my arm feeling hot. I immediately checked her temperature that moment. The reading was 100.1 F. I kept her home, of course. She was throwing up that morning I was so worried. Good thing there’s no diarrhea. DD was complaining of a headache so I gave her pain reliever/fever reducer medicine that day. I was monitoring her fever overnight as well.
The fever didn’t subside so I called the pediatrician’s office for an appointment. We were able to see the doctor in the afternoon, thank goodness. Strep and flu tests were conducted–the strep test came back negative but the flu came back positive. Immediately her doctor prescribed medicine to take for five days. DD is coughing but her lungs sounds perfect. She recommends lots of rest for the rest of the week.
As of today, my darling daughter is feeling a little okay. No fever overnight after taking the medication. Also, I am very glad that her appetite is back.
It is very hard when our children gets sick. We worry so much. But we should not panic. Call and see your health provider.
