I'm really beginning to hate handing my children over for solid chunks of days. My imp may be doing much better, for the most part, but the pixie has barely gotten over one virus before she's come down with the next one.
I'm not sure she'll be up for school
tomorrow. She's decidedly uncomfortable, and has been running a fever,
on and off. I think the best, and only, thing I can do is try my best
to get her to be still and rest to recover. The Nutcracker
is doing a lot of my work for me...but I've already watched it twice
today, and have promised her I'd start it again when she wakes back up
from her nap.
It's ironic, though...the doctors in the
NICU told me that the imp would probably have a weak immune system, and
that he'd have trouble with it through elementary school. He's had one
cold (albeit a nasty one), and one bout with stomach flu. He's had to
stay home once. It's ironic that the one born eight weeks early has the
stronger immune system than the one who was born only a little early.
