Kids Go Down, But Not Out

... not even close. My daughter had a runny nose and mucousy/sleepy eyes yesterday so I took her to the pediatrician. One ear infection, sinus issues and probable bacteria in her eyes, we left with prescriptions for 3 medicines. It's that time of year, right? My husband & I gave Little K a dose of each medication and sent her to bed at 7:30 pm. This morning, it was obvious she didn't have enough of the medicines in her system to make a difference yet. Daddy stayed with his only daughter this morning, while Mommy ran up Hwy 290 to a business meeting. Little K was still groggy when I returned at 10:30 am to relieve my husband from sick duty so he could get onto work.

It's a miracle! By 4 pm, she was obviously feeling better. I say "obviously" because she was literally doing laps around the house, chasing the indoor cat, eating a piece of chalk, applying Daddy's aftershave and opening doors that she shouldn't. And YES, I was watching her. When I was about at my whit's end, I carefully knelt down beside my toddler and asked her for a hug, a really big one. Little K obliged and it quickly put things into perspective. I wish I always had the foresight to think of that request. Don't you? Try it. Little arms wrapped tightly around your neck do wonders. As does 24 hours worth of medication.
