Kate was pitiful. She's been relatively healthy in her first 17 months of life, minus a few colds here and there. We've been counting our blessings on that one. Needless to say, this is the sickest she has ever been. All day Tuesday and Wednesday she just wanted to be held and had no desire to play.
My mom was awesome and came up to help with Kate on Thursday and Friday so I could go in to work, and my dad sent a big pot of the best chicken and dumplings. By Saturday, Kate was feeling MUCH better. After being cooped up for 6 days straight, she was itching to get out. She kept going to the door, pointing and saying "go, go". I decided to let her "go" somewhere-. Sacrifice, you know? (We just went through the drive-through.)
I still kept her at home on Sunday just in case she was still contagious, but she's back to her normal self today. I hope this was her last encounter with the flu for MANY years to come.
** Don't forget my online Kelly's Kids party. Today was the first day to place orders, and you can place them anytime between now and February 14th!
