Sick Kiddo

Emmi is sick again with bronchitis. She gets bronchitis and pneumonia often. Since she does not cough well due to her tone, she often needs breathing treatments during these times. She was given a new prescription today. The first time did not go well. She vomited. It gave her a sore throat. I should have given her half a dose, but I just didn't think about it beforehand. She will now eat or drink nothing besides "coffee milk." Yep, that's right. My kid is demanding coffee. Or really, milk with a splash of coffee.

To make matters worse, I had just given her the antibiotic. She now thinks that is why she threw up. She runs from me when I try to give her any. It is going to make for a fun next five days.

So sorry that Emmi is sick! I bet you're not looking forward to tonight, just when you got some of Jill's sleep problems partially resolved.

Poor Emmi! Of course, that is precisely why you couldn't do any work today. :D

Emmi stayed up until almost 11. She normally goes to bed at 7:30. She woke up at 6. I was at least hoping she would sleep in...

Jill, on the other hand, went to bed at 7:15 and slept through until the alarm went off!

Poor kiddo, I hope she's better soon.
