Sick Day

I had to be the one to tell Ane that she was staying home from school sick today.

However, I needed moral backup. So I told her while I was on the phone with Grandma.

On Saturday, Ane was invited to a birthday party. I took her and stayed there, because I know the mom pretty well and we haven’t had the chance to chat in a while. And Ane was just plain feeling punky after her nap. I was pretty convinced she was feverish, but she absolutely insisted that she was FINE and wanted to go.

She lasted about 2/3 the way through the party, and then she threw up.

Fortunately, she was outside on the lawn. Everyone was very understanding, and I hustled her home quickly.

She stayed home from church on Sunday, and fortunately, she hasn’t thrown up again and is eating normally. But she told me how “icky” she was feeling, and her fever has not yet come down, except with Tylenol.

So we’re keeping her as far away from Tad as possible (who has been waking up every morning since the ice-cream social/open house at his school last Thursday asking if he’s going to see his teachers today), called the school attendance line, emailed her teacher, and giving her liquids.

She was just a tiny bit devastated that she was going to miss school today. Hopefully she will be better tomorrow, and will be able to go back to school.

    I wondered why we didn’t see you at church. I hope Ane feels better soon. Lina missed her!

    Poor girl. Give her a germ-free hug and kiss from me.
