Sick girl

So M has had a cold on and off since starting daycare. We knew it would be this way, and it seems that getting sick when around other kids is inevitable - even if one of us stayed at home with M til she starts school, we'd be going through all this with a 5 year old in grade one. Since Sunday, her cold's been rather yucky, and M has been having some cough syrup. This was perfect timing for her first babysitting session with Gramps and Gran Lylia. Until Wednesday night, the odd bit of Demazin, as required, seemed to be doing the trick (and a visit to the GP in between to make sure that it wasn't anything more serious). Wednesday night we had a very upset little girl waking up every hour or so. I was feeling so happy to be back at work ... not! The last few nights have been rather horrid, and typically involved an hour or so of trying to convince M that she wants to sleep in her bed from about 3am til 4am. It's such a shock to get some yucky sleep happening, after having good sleep for a while!
M's been rather upset this afternoon, so we called a Doctor out for a home visit. The inside of one ear is looking red and bulging (I think he said Titus something) and he's prescribed antibiotics for the next week. Poor little chook. It must be so hard to have pain and occasional fever and just not be able to do anything more about it than cry and want cuddles from Mummy and Daddy.
