germs

Daycare is good.  Daycare is good.  Daycare is good.

That’s what I keep telling myself… as I hear Jillian cough, sneeze, and breathe with nasal congestion.  She’s been inundated with daycare germs, and I hate it.  The other kids don’t hold her or play with her, but the daycare providers definitely pass germs from one kid to another, including Jillian.

At 1am this morning, I heard Jillian coughing on the monitor for a few minutes so I went in to check on her.  She was trying to get some gunk out of her throat and her nose was running.  J and I tried to get as much stuff out of her nose as we could, and thankfully she fell back asleep after a few minutes.  It’s just hard to see her getting sick, especially when I know that it’s because she’s no longer safe and sound with just us (or her grandparents). It’s times like this when I wish I could stay home and take care of her.

One of the books we have suggests that we put a humidifier in her room and use the bulb syringe to clear her nose.  We followed those directions, and I checked on her again later in the night.  According to the book, as long as she is able to breathe and doesn’t have a fever, we don’t need to call the doctor.  So let’s pray it doesn’t get any worse than it already is.

For now, I’m thankful that Jillian doesn’t have a fever and that her immune system is getting stronger by warding off all those germs.

Happy (germy) thankful Thursday…

    I hope she will recover quickly!!! And as you say, her immune system needs small infections to get stronger!!! Hopefully no fever involved, and no need to see the doctor! See you soon!
