Putting out fires

Today I’ve been playing the role of fire-fighter at work.  I hate having to research and correct someone else’s mistake, especially when they’re not available to explain how they got the number in the first place.  So far, all fires have been extinguished, which is amazing because I probably only got about 3 hours of sleep last night.


Tree Faerie has a follow-up doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning to check the status of her ear infection.  I think she still has it.  The lymph nodes beneath her ear still swell on occasion, and she still pulls at it.  About 1:30 AM Friday night/Saturday morning, she woke up with a temperature over 103 degrees.  I gave her ibuprofen and put her back to sleep, and the fever finally broke around 3:30AM.  She had a lower fever on Saturday night.  Last night I gave her ibuprofen before bed in hopes that her ear would feel better and I could actually get some sleep.  No such luck.


I still can’t log into Google or Blogger, so I’m still not able to leave comments on most of your blogs.  If I get a chance tonight to sit at my computer at home, I’ll try to comment.


Well, off to fight more fires.

Dude, I'm finally getting sleep and now you're up. I wish I could send some to you or sleep in shifts with you to care for Tree Faerie. It's so hard, being a mom, on duty 24 hours a day. And then? The adults at your away-from-home job are more like children than the children we raise! I just don't understand it and I feel your frustration.

I sure hope all is getting better at the Fey household. We miss you! Has anyone told you yet that your whole sidebar is missing information?

Oh, I hope she gets better soon. I just hate ear infections because you can never be sure if they are gone. I have to take Kirye in this week to see if the antibiotics helped his ear. I can't wait until summer when all of this sickness will be over with...hopefully!
