Nothing to do but laugh......
Today was supposed to be #3's 6 month check up. Yes, she is six months already. I cannot believe it either. After her late afternoon nap yesterday she felt a bit warm. At 7 I took her temp and it was 102.6.....oh my! She was acting fine, not fussy at all, so after a bit of cereal I put her down for the night. I was glad we already had an appt this morning to see the good doctor. She woke up at 5 am, felt warmish and was hungry, as her last bottle had been 12 hours previous. She ate and went back down.
At 9 we arrived at UPA and the doc checked her out. You can guess this part: Virus. Nothing to do about it. Let it run its course, yada yada.
Then it was time for #1 and #2 to get their flu shots. #2 was a champ. #1 threw a fit worthy of an academy award. I have never seen her so hysterical. I was completely embarrassed as she kicked and thrashed, having to be pinned down by the nurse and mr. brick for the tiny poke. She actually didn't even notice the shot itself. Go figure.
Here is where it really gets good......while #1 is gnashing her teeth and screeching like a mad person #3 throws up. She doesn't spit up the few ounces she has had of her bottle. She throws up the entire contents of her 5 am bottle all over me. Eeeew! Thankfully I had an extra change of clothes for HER and our nurse was extremely helpful in taking care of the mess.
After a quick stop for pedialyte and a new sippy cup we are home. #3 is in bed and I am showered and in my sick day jammies. I am actually looking forward to staying at home with her in the morning while #1 and #2 got to school.
And big props to Mr. Brick who stayed home from work this morning to help corral the herd. I certainly could not have done it alone!
Oh, and we get to reschedule for the six month check up!
