Tomorrow is Alice’s birthday (yay) but at the moment it’s not looking like it’s going to be a very fun day because she’s siiiiick and she’s been siiiiiick for over a week now. I’m going to call the doctor first thing in the morning in the hopes that she can be seen sometime tomorrow (on her birthday, waaah!) or Thursday morning at the latest. She has all kinds of fun stuff planned for the rest of the week that I’d hate for her to have to miss.
I’m thinking right now that she’s got some sort of sinus infection or something like that. She’s got congestion in her head and nose, and gunk dripping down her throat giving her a sore throat, a hoarse voice, and a hacking cough. She’s had no fever, she’s got low-ish energy and kind of a low appetite, but she’s not at all sick sick like she was this spring. It doesn’t seem to be contagious, since none of us has caught any of it off of her even though she’s been coughing all over the place for a week.
I gave her a few low-key days to let her body work it out, and then I tried her with some different antihistamines in case it was ragweed-related (it’s pollen season around here), but she just isn’t getting better and it’s really making her sad. This is not how her golden birthday is supposed to go!!!
