Sick Little Julia

Tuesday evening at 6:15 Julia told me she was cold. The next thing I knew, she had covered herself up with the afghan and was fast asleep on the couch. She had been coughing all day, and a fever showed up in the evening.When she woke up Wednesday morning, she still had a fever with lots of coughing and congestion. I alternated between ibuprofen and Tylenol all day to keep the fever away. That also made Julia feel better, so she played normally for the most part. However, since she was still sick, once 6:00 rolled around, she literally crashed on the floor with her stuffed animals. It was another early bedtime for Julia last night.

This morning Julia still had a fever with her cough. We were all bummed about this because today was the day for her preschool winter program and party. Julia shed a few tears over the fact that she wouldn't be going to preschool this morning. But I kept her occupied with Candy Land, paper dolls and watching a bit of TV. Let's hope she shakes this thing soon - it's not like our Julia to be so unenergetic!
