Whatever it is that will make this week/month/year end I'll do it..
We have battled every (or so it seems) sickness known to man short of the really terrible ones this past year. Today I must say it has been the kicker. Brief history .. Emily is a nail bitter. Always has been, betting she might not be one after this long long incident. She ripped her hang nail out on Wednesday, I didn't notice it until Friday. But by then it was ugly looking. Pus, red, irritated etc but it looked like it should be healing so went with polysporin and a germ rinse. Ha. This kid, she doesn't do things half assed. Nope not my kid. She ended with a blood infection. Yuppers. A blood infection. The doctor thought it could go the sepsis way, so we've been on "sepsis" watch all day. I don't think it went that way, yet, but I'll keep watching. After 5 hrs of sleep this afternoon she is a little happier. Not much but a little. So hopefully she's on the right track. Because the medicine that I have to give the little stinker is awful. Had to pretty much hog tie her to get it down her throat. So yeah, I cry uncle. I don't want to deal with the bad parts of being a parent any longer!
