As someone who has experience in pediatric nursing, you would think I would know something about when my own kids are sick. Um, I do not, obviously.
Alivia woke up last night with her eyes mattered shut. Oh, she must have pink eye. So, I decided to keep her home from school. She woke with her eyes looking like she was in an overnight boxing match. Since I was going to the Dr with Asher anyway, I made an appointment for Alivia, too. The diagnosis? Viral eye infection, fever (I had not even considered taking her temp), & ear infection! When I asked her if her ear hurt, she responded, "no."
So, I am continue to learn everyday...& I know nothing.
