We are home from our trip and Reese has developed a cough. Thankfully with no fever. I never sleep well but when I think Reese is getting sick, I sleep even worse. She woke up before 6 am this morning and I quickly scooped her up and put her in bed with me hoping she would be able to fall back to sleep and get some extra rest. She did! But I basically laid there the whole time listening to her little lungs and trying to diagnose her. I have to say that I was pretty worried. I didn’t like how she sounded and I decided that I was taking her to the doctor as soon as possible. Reese woke up 2 hours later and she immediately worried me even more! She looked at me and seemed a little confused. She also didn’t say her sweet “good morning” like she always does. My immediate thoughts were that she is so sick and delirious from traveling that she doesn’t know who I am or where she is!
Um … nope. I’m just a little kooky sometimes.
She smiled at me and screamed “MOMMY, DISNEYLAND”! A few days ago while we were on our trip she asked if we could go to Disneyland. I told her that we were too far away but that when got home we would go. I guess she is right, we ARE home. But I felt a trip to Urgent Care, although not as fun, was a far better choice.
On the car ride over Reese pointed out the exit to Disneyland and let me know when she saw the Matterhorn. She was honestly cracking me up at this point. This child WANTS to go to Disneyland! I told her that we had to see what the doctor said about her cough before we could go again. She wasn’t happy about that but luckily the doctor felt Reese was just dealing with a possible case of sinusitis. Nothing like pneumonia or bronchitis. THANK GOD. She wrote her a prescription just in case Reese’s symptoms worsened over the next 24-48 hours. As we left the doctor’s office Reese looked up at me and asked, “Disneyland?” Needless to say my silly daughter feels fine, regardless of how she sounds. But I certainly wasn’t taking any chances.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you JUST MAKE SURE!!!
