Ah, Motherhood

Here we all are... Angeni started some more antibiotic today, and so did I... in some ways she is sicker with this virus and ear infection than she seemed to be with the pneumonia 6 weeks ago. For all the kinds and types of illnesses we've treated here, from lupus to cancer, nothing tugs at the heartstrings more than a sick child. To hear her moaning every minute in fractious sleep, crying out in pain, gurgling in her sinus mucous, is heart-wrenching. She is a tough little girl though, and tried some eggnog today, because one of the characters in the "Liitle House" series drank eggnog. Her 8-year-old suspicion over adult food was waived because she trusts Laura Ingalls. At least the eggnog will help to revive her fluid levels a little. I pray these illnesses abate soon...
