Tylenol is My Friend

Whew -- what a week we had last week. Little Miss Maddy was sick just about All. Week. Long! Poor baby! First, I thought she might have strep throat. Took her to the doc last Monday -- negative strep test. But, she kept having a high temp every evening and was totally worn out. By Thursday, she did feel a bit better and whatever she had seemed to turn into a nasty cold/cough and still she was so worn out. She seemed to be coughing up part of a lung at night and my favorite remedy, Vicks on the chest and running a vaporizer wasn't helping. Add to that, she wasn't eating much and did not even want her favorite -- BBQ potato chips! She had to be sick to decline her fav chips! So, back to the doc on Saturday -- who said it hadn't gotten to the point of a sinus infection . . . yet (that will probably be this week)!! But, at least we got some cough medicine. Tried to give Maddy some Motrin since I think it works longer than Tylenol. Not for her --she says "it's too spicy." Cough medicine -- she says "Too spicy!" Grape chewable Tylenol -- "just right - not too spicy."

She seemed much better yesterday (Sunday) and went off to daycare/school today. Early afternoon, a teacher called and reported that Maddy says her ear hurts. Oh no -- ear infection maybe??? Will have to wait and see. The good news in all this [see, I AM trying to look on the bright side] is that with all this going on now, surely she will be in perfect health for Easter break. And that is very good news as we are spending it with the Mouse in Orlando! Can't wait for warm weather -- don't even care about long lines -- as long as the sun is shining and the temp is 60 or above. This photo of Ariel and Maddy is from last year's visit. We're hoping to see even more Princesses and characters this time. Hold on Princesses -- we're on our way!!
