Happy Friday everyone! I love Fridays... I feel like my weekend has started. The only downside to Friday is that it's laundry day. But I feel like it's so much easier to get through the laundry on a Friday because I know the next day will be a fun day! Unlike Monday laundry day that is just rotten and often ends with the laundry not getting done... hehe!
Anyway, I feel like I haven't done any momma blogging in so long! i even missed Wordless Wednesday this week! Well, I have an explanation.... this week we discovered a very rare spotted bug......
Then... the spots. A few at first... hmmm... allergic reaction? Then more... ummm chicken pox? Then a million ALL OVER..... ahhh my child is cleary suffering from some rare disease that needs immediate medical attention! Off to the pediatrician we went. Yes, I am stronlgy considering signing up for that standing weekly appointment with the pediatrician. Just kidding.. I don't go THAT often... every 2 weeks should do it :)
I love doctors reactions.. it's kind of like "oh this is not big deal" when I am sitting there with my heart in my throat and sure that the next words out of his mouth are going to be a serious diagnosis. Nope... this is a virus and it doesn't even have a name. At least not a name he can give me. It's a normal, every day, run of the mill virus that will work it's way out. HAH! I would think he would know by now that that answer is not going to cut it with a first time mom. I want a name and something I can DO. I hate not being able to DO anything.
I had to do nothing. Ugh! I just had to sit and stare at her to make sure the spots didn't continue to multiply. I had to check her temperature every 30 minutes because I was sure at any minute it would be sky rocketing. I had to chase her around the house with her sippy cup because I was sure she would be dehydrated at any moment. Mind you this whole time that I am acting like a lunatic she is acting completely normally, showing no signs of illness... well except for her spots!
And then we woke up this morning... and the spots were gone. Just like that! Who knew? Well, the doctor knew. My other mommy friends knew. Even my own mother knew! Who knew our mothers knew anything?!? And now I know... and I won't freak out the next time. Haha.. yeah right! I will never learn. But that's ok... I would rather be safe than sorry and my pediatrician is quickly learning that. See you next week, doc!
