motherfucking ass. Every time.
I wrote something about having the pig flu here. It was supposed to be a joke.
But if you don't get it, oh well.
Guess I shouldn't have tempted fate, because my poor 5 year old daughter is sicker than a dog. The only way I can keep her fever below 105 is to piggy back Motrin and Tylenol.
Oh yes, and there was the great suggestion by an unnamed nurse to dunk her in a bath of COLD water. (parents, please do not dunk your children in cold water when they have fevers. Use, lukewarm water. If the water is cold, they will shiver, which will actually RAISE their body temperature).
I would bring her in to the ER, but they are not testing or treating children for the Swine flu if they are otherwise healthy.
I thank my lucky stars she is.
She is feeling totally miserable, so thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.
