Once again...

Y'all are going to get tired of hearing about every time Wendy's sick. But seriously - a full week of the flu about a month ago, then a minor fever/not feeling good thing, and now, a high fever, not sleeping, not drinking, not eating, not happy kind of thing. Oh, and vomiting.

So we're headed to the doctor this afternoon. On the one hand, I don't want anything to be wrong with her. On the other hand, I want them to find something we can treat. I get really frustrated with the random viruses that make her so sick with no real treatment available.

Sigh. I'm sure I'll let you know the details. The last time I took her to the doctor in a similar condition, they put in a urinary catheter to check for a bladder infection - even though I was across the building, I could hear the screams. Sigh.

Update: We saw a different doctor today - after all, what child on the planet gets sick when their doctor is actually working? Wendy got a head-to-toe checkup, and other than a temp of 103.5, everything was normal. That means most likely she's got her first icky stomach bug. Grandma and Grandpa are on their way over as I type with Pedialyte, crackers, and the spare blankie - the one we keep at home got a wee bit puked on.

I didn't want it to be just a virus, because I wanted something we could actively treat. However, she slept all the way home from the pediatrician (40 minutes) and since returning home half an hour ago, she's been playing and eating and drinking. Maybe it was a curative doctor visit.
