Poor little Kate is on her 4th day of fever. She is generally refusing all fever medication, which is okay with me as her fever is not too high and fever serves an important role in the infection control process. But I think she might be a little more comfortable with a little ibuprofen.
It may seem like kind of a wrong thing to say, but there is a positive to all the sick days - we don't have to go anywhere. To take time off of all the running around and activities and commitments and just spend time at home is wonderful to me; perhaps it's a wake-up call that sickness is seeming like a vacation!
