Down With the Cold

Our poor Fi has been fighting a cold for over a week now. Her poor nose is just dripping green snot (lovely image, I know) and her eyes have green globbies and she's coughing a lot. She seems miserable.

I took her to the doctor (!) this morning to see if there was anything else I could do for her besides Calpol. He was really nice. In fact, when he got out his stethoscope to listen to her chest, I could hardly believe it! He was actually LOOKING at my child. This was a different doctor from the one who told me she had a 'teething rash' without looking at her - I think - though he was in the same office as that guy so maybe it was him after all. I remember him with brown hair, but this doc had grey. Hmm. Anyway, he prescribed her some nasal drops to help clear her nose while she sleeps, which I might go fill, I haven't decided. Will talk to Scott first.

So, it's been a miserable week. Oh, and did I mention I'm sick too? Sore throat, sneezy, tired, achy... bleh. We are quite a pair, me and Fi.

Well, we are about to leave, and I've just noticed she has taken off her socks and shoes, so must go fix that.

Two weeks until my mom arrives!!
