View Full Version : One week to go and DD is sick

Ack, my 3YO DD has a fever, aches and runny nose - and I'm stressing out.

I'm so NOT someone who takes their kids to the dr as soon as the sniffles appear, but guess where we are going this afternoon. And I'll be asking for *something* to give her.

I've been having nightmares about swine flu (don't know why), and now this happens. :eek:

Now to keep her away from her sisters when they get home from school.

I am really sorry to hear about your DD but at least there is enough time to get rid of it before your trip. Keep her hydrated!!!!!!!!!

That's no good!! Fill 'er up with vitamin C and Oranges and lots and lots of water!
Whatever it is she should get over before you go.

The one good thing about kids being sick is that they tend to recover very quickly! Fingers crossed here for a very speedy recovery and that your other children don't get sick as well!

Thanks everyone - the good news is that DD has tonsillitis (she went downhill so quickly this morning I was imagining swine flu...) and antibiotics to go with it.

I'm filling her up with Hydralyte, Vitamin C and panadol (and a McD's soft serve cone :) ) Fingers crossed she will be feeling a bit better in a day or so. At the moment she is quite happily watching Nightmare before Christmas.

How's your DD feeling today? Is she picking up?

She is a lot better today, thanks for asking. Not 100%, but a heck of a lot better than yesterday.

Great news :)
Sending a little pixie dust to keep them all well :wizard:
