The little germ factory is at it again

March 3rd, 2008 at 07:29 pm

Mini Me missed two days of school last week with a high fever and cough. She went back today because she didn't have a fever and seemed to be on the mend. However, when I picked her up this afternoon, I could tell all was not well.

Although she's not running a fever, she is coughing a lot and looks miserable. She's also got very little energy.

Rather than send her to school to be miserable tomorrow, I've decided to keep her home again. She's off for parent-teacher conferences Thursday and Friday, so if she doesn't make a considerable improvement tomorrow I'll just keep her home Wednesday as well.

The problem now is that I need to show my face at least twice over the next two days at the "office" job. My husband has agreed to come home early tomorrow, but Wednesday is still questionable for both of us. Where's a grandma when you need them????

The Germanator (aka Mini Me) is not one to hang out in the doctor's office. In fact, she may be the only 7 year old in the modern world who has never had antibiotics. Since she hasn't been sick for more than 10 days yet and is eating OK -- and has a wet nose -- I see no need to haul her in to the monster of all germ factories -- the doctor's office. Instead, I'm just going to ply her with lots of liquids and sleep, save the $30 copay, and hope for the best.

    My 7 yr old daughter was diagnosed with strep throat this weekend. It just wiped her out. We caught it early...and she didn't miss school. I wish her the quickest of recoveries!!

    God bless your little one. Strep blew through our home pretty good missing only the 11 year old. Lot's of liquids and love.

    We've not had the dreaded strep throat yet. I don't think this is strep. I just think it's a bad cold and a few more days of lying low will do the trick.
