Smiling Again

The smiles that normally fill the McClintock household had been MIA for the last week. Jessica has been sick with throwing up and runny nose and the cough monster. After just four days of it and her not sleeping much I decided to be a "Good" mother and take her to the doctor. Of course, she didn't cough or sniffle one bit while we were there and her fever even broke just in time for them to take her temperature. Aaaargh, they looked at me and smiled and said "well she must just have a cold". I was soooo frustrated as I drove home listening to my child cough and hack the whole way home. What a lovely waste of time ;)

Now we are on day 11 of the yuck but with much improvement. No throwing up or fever and the runny nose and cough have lessened, and she is sleeping again for the most part!
But the best part of all is that she is finally smiling again. Last week she would cry all day long and now she is laughing and happy again! We have even been outside enjoying the warm weather.
We all ended up with some form of the yuck this past week, sniffles, runny nose, sore throat.
But now I am off to Lysol the entire house and hopefully keep us all healthy again.
I am very thankful that the smiles have returned!
