Okay, that didn't lost long. The paradise phase, I mean. She was fine through early evening last night, then crashed. She was coughing all night, that awful croupy sounding cough where it sounds like she's going to choke to death. She woke up this morning with a fever, complaining of dizziness and that her stomach hurt. She even said she wanted to go to the doctor. Then she threw up.
I have her parked back in bed now, tv on, and I hope she can drift back into sleep. I called the doctor but the nurse said they're trying *not* to bring in kids with the flu so that they don't get the other kids sick. I guess that makes sense. Sort of. There's not much they can really do for the flu, anyway.
Because today both kids were supposed to get the H1N1 mist, I could have brought Xander (who appears to either be developing the flu or faking it but since he doesn't have a fever was cleared to go in) but then since Hari's working, I had no one to watch Jessica.
