As if strep wasn't bad enough, now my Blue has chicken pox! Poor little baby.
It's a little scary, though, that she can have such a high fever and act completely normal. I get even a low fever and I start crying. It's like some weird knee-jerk reaction. I also cry every time I throw up. I am just one big cry-baby.
But Blue had a fever last week of 103 for 3 days straight and except for the fact that the child was burning hot to the touch and her eyes were a little glassy, she seemed absolutely fine. Maybe she's some kind of superhero.
She has a raging fever, but no one knows. She could be near death, but she keeps it on the down-low. She's Super-Sneaky Sicko!
Seriously. As my mom would say:
It scares the crap out of me.
I will be chasing this poor kid around with a rectal thermometer her whole childhood. "Come to Mommy!"
