Almost There!!

If this week had been any more hectic, I don't know what I would have done!!! I went to Mississippi on Sunday to see my grandma for Mothers Day. So, at about 1am on Monday morning, my daughter woke up with a fever of 103.3. Naturally, my elderly grandparents don't just keep children's Tylenol lying around and, of course, there's nowhere to BUY something like that at 1am in a small town. So, Grandpa and I had to drive to the ER to pick up some samples that a nurse said she'd give us. Luckily, we managed to bring the fever down. However, by the time I got home later that day, it was back up to 103.5. So, we took her to the clinic and the nurse practitioner, who is very nice, but sometimes her diagnosis makes no sense, said that she "might" have mono. This was based on nothing more than checking her temp and feelings her glands (they were swollen). HELLO?!?!?!?! There are a million things that can cause fever and swollen glands...not JUST mono! Alyssa didn't have ANY of the other "classic" symptoms of mono, including the fatigue, which is the MAIN symptom (due to the fact that mono is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus). At any rate, she now has a cough and such, so I really think it's just some kind of respiratory infection. She's on antibiotics, to be on the safe side.

Then, I had to make the cake for her graduation....with NO help, naturally. It was fun and I really enjoyed it, but it was HARD to do that, get it done on time, while taking care of a sick kid all by myself. You should really try it fun!! But, I did it, and my baby graduated from Montessori school today. She'll be a big Kindergartener next year!!

Then, we had dance rehearsal right after the graduation and we'll have the dress rehearsal tomorrow and the recital Saturday afternoon. I swear, if I get through this week without needing drug rehab, I will feel like I've accomplished something!!
