Which one do you want to hear first?
If you're like most people I know, I am going to assume that you would say bad news...
(I'm so dramatic. And presumptuous.)
Monday, I brought Gemma in to the docs, because she had a rough sounding cough. I had called the nurse at the pediatrician's office, and she said it sounded like it may be croup so we had to go in. The doctor examined her, and said that she thinks that the cough is related to her runny nose which is caused by ???. She didn't really say why she has had a runny nose for the past 2 weeks.
Thanks for the specific answers doc. I am glad to know that I leave your office knowing barely anything more than what I knew when I got there.
So, I am sort of whatever about the cough, for now at least, but what really worries me is that Gemma lost one and a half pounds. In two weeks. She went from almost 18 pounds to just over 16 pounds.
I feel like I am failing as a mother, because I can't manage the simple task of nurturing my child.
On top of that, I am wondering that there is something really wrong. Not because I have any reason to think that there is something else wrong, but I am a mama, and I worry. Sue me.
Has anybody else had any experience with something like this?
So, now that I have worked myself up into a frenzy (again), the good news!
I won a giveaway, for the first time ever! I won this cute crinkle toy, from Brandy at You Don't Know. You should head on over and check out Brandy's blog. She is a funny lady.
And on that note, think good thoughts for this little lady, would you?
