Yesterday afternoon, Namine had an appointment with the Special Needs department head.
We went back to Urgent Care last night. Namine’s cough had changed, and we were concerned that something might have traveled to her lungs.
Things often don’t go as planned. This weekend was one of those things.
We haven’t been to the ER this many times in so few weeks in a long, long time. Hopefully, this weekend has seen the end of it.
We had a busy day weekend. We saw Frozen (this being Namine’s third time and my first) and we cleaned the apartment. Well, most of it. This morning, I don’t know if Namine is paying for being out in the cold, but she woke up with a croupy cough.
I worked from home today, which allowed me to get up with Namine and let Jessica sleep in. When I gave Namine her breakfast around 9:30, she asked me to first put her palatal prosthetic in. Wait, what? Yes, that’s right. She was so enthusiastic about it that she wanted to eat breakfast while wearing it.
The day before yesterday, we took Namine to the doctor. She’s had a pretty phlegmy cough for about a week now, and the antibiotic didn’t really seem to do the trick. Then yesterday saw us in the ER, something we’d been trying to avoid – but you do what’s best for your child, no matter how much you dislike it.
Namine and I now apparently have what Jessica had last week. I thought that I had gotten the worst of it, but Namine woke up with a crouping cough this morning. Despite her being sick, though, she nearly always keeps it together and stays cheerful.
Do you believe in coincidence? I tend not to. Namine threw up again today in the same situation as last time, which brings me to the conclusion that it’s not something she ate – last time I thought it was eggs – but rather the circumstance: the doctor’s office.
This ear infection just won’t quit. And now Namine’s ear is bleeding. Wonderful.
