Same ol same ol

Sydney's still hanging in there. She still has a temperature, most times anyway. She'll be fine for a few hours then her temp goes up to 103 or so. So frustrating! I think I'll call the doctor tomorrow and find out what else we can do. We've been rotating between the Motrin and Tylenol every three hours, but at this point I am getting worried that she shouldn't be on this medicine for as long as she has. The new quarter of her toddler class starts this week too, and I was really hoping she'd be able to go on Tuesday. That's not looking so good at this point. We'll see what the doc says. I swear we are keeping the clinic in business.

I remember being pregnant with Sydney, and I was a total nervous Nellie. I rented a doppler for most the pregnancy and checked for her heartbeat several times a day. Anytime I had any sort of pain I worried. I remember thinking, "I can't wait to have this baby, then I can stop worrying." And then it dawned on me...this was just the beginning...the beginning of a lifetime of worrying about your child. From childhood illnesses, to the new drivers license to peer pressure at school. It doesn't ever end. And it probably doesn't help I am a total worry wart anyway. Oi, this too shall pass.

And with that I am going to bed, I am exhausted.
