The Bellaboo is sick!

She's not "sick-sick", but has had a fever all weekend. Last night she started with an annoying, ticklish cough, but otherwise seems to be OK. On Saturday afternoon she complained about being cold, so she took my blanket upstairs with her. Thomas checked on her about 20 minutes later because she was being just a bit too quiet, and found her sound asleep! On the floor!!! Crazy kid. That was when we realized she had a fever. She had been good and active all day, and after she woke up completely from her "nap", she was fine. She just felt really hot. She played, she went on errands with us, did her IXL math work, etc etc...just the fever.

Yesterday, she still had a fever, and yet was still as energetic as ever. But when afternoon rolled around, she again wanted to take a nap. I told her to just go upstairs to bed, but she wanted to be on the couch. Bella NEVER wants to take a nap, so you know she's sick when she does. I let her sleep for an hour and then woke her up. She and Thomas played Wii for about an hour while I made dinner. That was the first meal she really didn't have much of an appetite but she did eat some - with lots of prompting.

This morning she woke up about a half hour early, coughing really hard. She had just a bit of a fever left and probably could have gone to school today. But seeing how she was sick all weekend and was coughing, it was easier to keep her home then turn around and pick her up early if she started coughing hard again. Because you know she's gonna try and milk this for all it's worth, lol!

Bella zonked out on the couch.
Just look at that sweet baby face!
That's my kid, and I love her!

I did tell her that she WAS going to school tomorrow. Period!!

It sounds like she has bronchitis to me. My son used to get that a lot when he was a kid, and then when he was 16, he got a really bad case of pneumonia. Had a fever of 105 at one point, and it took a good month before he was feeling better. I hope Bella feels better soon. *hugs to you both*

Bless her heart. She looks so precious all cuddled up on the couch. I hope she feels better tomorrow.

Yep...when that "N" word (nap) hasn't been in their vocabulary for some time and they want to take one then you know something is up. With all the rest and all the cuddling today...I feel sure she will be "THE BELLA" again..all bright and ready for an adventure by tomorrow. NOW..let's just keep stay well thoughts in our hearts for mommie to stay well.

Hugs,
Regi

Thank you again for Cupid my sweet friend ^_^

Bella is one beautiful girl, Jeannie. She may need more than just today to get over this fever thing. I hope she's up to her usual activities very soon.

Kids love the extra love and attention, don't they? I sure hope she feels better soon!

Rita said...

Poor Bella! If she has been running a fever for three days she definitely has something. I used to have a three days rule when Dagan was little. Sick/fever for three days then go to the doctor to have it checked out. I hope she is better soon! :)

Kathy said...

Poor thing, hope she feels better. Yes they do look angelic when they are sleeping! Take Care

Mary said...

Those sweet little cheeks look flushed! Hope she's feeling better. How weird is it that you're thousands of miles away but it sounds like she has what I had/have?

Tammy said...

I hope she is feeling better real soon...no fun! I thought Brad felt a little warm this morning when he woke up but he was fine. He would have been so disappointed since it was his BD and you can't be sick then.
