Sickie Girl

Raegan ended up being pretty sick this week. We stayed home from church last Sunday because she was really weepy and starting to get stuffy. Later that afternoon she started running a fever, so Luke stayed home with her on Monday. I had some fun things planned in my classroom that day and I really didn't want to miss work, and he seemed happy to stay home. :) She didn't have a fever all that day, so we went ahead with trick or treating that evening. She ended up waking up several times in the middle of the night, and when I took her temperature at one of those points it was a little above 100 degrees, just like it had been on Sunday.

So I called off at work and stayed home with Raegan. I ended up keeping her home Tuesday and Wednesday, because she still had a fever when we put her to bed Tuesday evening. Wednesday morning her fever broke and stayed gone all day, so Raegan and I headed back out into the real work again Thursday. She seems to be on the mend now, although she is a bit more weepy and demanding than usual. She's also still not eating very much, which is a classic sign that she isn't feeling her best.

Sweet little story: Raegan loves the two books that she has from the Llama Llama series. I brought home Llama Llama Misses Mama from work to read to her yesterday. As the book goes along, the llama gets more and more sad about missing his mama after she drops him off at preschool. At the page where he starts crying, Raegan started wailing and said, "Maaaaaaama!" and flung herself into my arms. She tends to be very emotional when she's not feeling good. Poor sweet baby. :)

Raegan on Tuesday watching a little Sesame Street. Poor sickie girl!
