Thalia is finally getting over a cold that stretches back to last Friday, seven days ago. She had an afternoon-into-evening fever every day from Friday to Wednesday. The doctor on Tuesday said it was just a cold, but what a cold! I don’t remember Siena ever being sick for this long. Mama left work early on Monday to care for her; we split the day Tuesday, I was home Wednesday, and Mama was home Thursday. Thalia did OK during day care today, but did have a 90-minute screaming/whimpering session I was told. She still has a cough and obvious respiratory problems. I’m hoping it clears up over the weekend. Mama is out of town at a boondoggleconference until Monday, so it’s especially important to me that Thalia feel better tomorrow. Here’s hoping!
