The doctor came back in eventually and said everything was negative,
and wanted us to go to the hospital to get some blood work done to see if it was a viral or a bacterial infection.
So off we went, first stopping by the house to change our pukey clothes, and say hi to Lidia and Papa.
Once at the hospital,
I grabbed a bag of pretzels while we waited and soon Sis's attitude changed....
We got to the store and the Dr's office hadn't called in the prescription.
Strike 3 now wouldn't you say?
So I waited around for an hour with two crazy kids.
Lidia proceeded to flirt with a boy and say,
"Mama's he cute! I want that boy!"
And Carly seemed to be feeling better....
So since Carly's fever was gone for 24 hours, and she was on an antibiotic...
on Saturday we woke up and decided to still go to my bff's daughter's birthday party.
.... and to Aunt Chloe's soccer game!
But I knew she still wasn't feeling the best when we got home Saturday night.
She had only slept an hour during the day, and it took me 2 HOURS to get her to sleep that night.
So I wasn't surprised when I woke up to this baby again on Sunday morning...
I felt awful that I had her out around people all day Saturday but how was I supposed to know, right?
So Monday morning Carly woke up happy again!
(bi-polar sickness much?)
But I still wanted her normal Dr. to check her out.
Carly has hand, foot, and mouth disease.
There is no need for an antibiotic because it's a viral infection,
so we are drugging her up with tylenol/ibuprofen :)
(and a little dr's secret of 1/2 tsp maalox/ 1/2 tsp benadryl shhhh)
So after a long weekend, and lots of cuddling Carly...
We decided to reward Lidia with buying her new "dance dress" as she calls it before we headed home for naps.
I can't believe she starts dance class in 2 weeks!!!
Yesterday after naps,
both girls woke up happy!
They were both hungry too!
This is the first time Carly has actually eaten well in several days...
