Kait woke up sick this morning. She said she didn’t feel good last night, but we thought she was stalling. She looked fine, didn’t have a fever, etc… This morning, she woke up with crusty eyes and a stuffy nose. As the day progressed, she’s developed a fever and had a headache and been hot/cold off and on.
As if that’s not bad enough, she was supposed to go to one of her best friend’s birthday party tonight. She’s begging me through tears to let her go, but I just can’t. She understands why we can’t let her go, but it’s still hard. She just wants to go and have fun with her friends, even if it means sitting curled up in a chair and watching everyone else play she said.
It’s so hard to see her feeling so puny. She’s always so full of life and when she’s sick, it’s so obvious because she hardly moves and is so quiet. And when she has to miss something important to her because of being sick, it’s even worse. My poor Kati-bear!
