Saturday night she was taking a nap after dinner with my parents and woke up just fussing and gasping for breath. I picked her up and realized she has a fever. 100.6, which is a low grade fever but my little one has never had a fever before so it seems like a big deal to a new mom. We spent all of Saturday night with her sleeping on my chest, giving her Tylenol every 4 hours and making sure she was elevated enough to breathe.
Today has been better with her fever only going up once and she is not struggling to breathe quite as bad. However, she is now tugging on her ears so off to the pediatrician in the morning for us. I hate feeling so helpless, like there is nothing I can do to make her pain go away. This is a part of being a parent that seriously sucks.
When an illness knocks you on your ass
you should stay and relax for a while
before trying to get back up.
