RSV

I know I don’t write enough, and then when I do I feel overwhelmed with how much I want to say, as how much time has pasts, all the pictures I want to share…

We’re a week into school. And Nora has RSV. Thankfully not COVID. I guess. RSV can be bad in the very young and old, but I think Nora will be just fine. So far she has a sore throat, runny nose, nasty cough that sounds like croup, and a fever that seems to come and go, mostly coming on at night. This is her second day home from school. It’s a Wednesday, which are normally their short days anyway, and Nadia doesn’t have preschool on Wednesdays, so she is home as well. I’m hoping Nadia doesn’t get this, but… how can I really keep the girls apart? I mean, they were together before Nora had symptoms, so obviously shared germs already. Nadia was supposed to have her post op appointment tomorrow for her ear tube removal, but I cancelled that as I can’t take a sick Nora along. And Friday was supposed to be Nadia’s first of three behavioral health appointments in Iowa City… If you remember she was referred to them by the autism clinic when they didn’t know where else to send us, which was months and months and months ago. I hate to have to reschedule. But I’m not sure what else to do, and plus, Nadia might be sick by Friday. It’s always something, isn’t it?!

It’s a gorgeous day so we’re out on the patio, me typing away while the girls search for roly-polices, or pill bugs I guess they are also called. Yuck! I don’t know how they are my daughters! At least we are getting some fresh air and sun out here!

    sympathy. Call and ask the clinic what they wish you to do. In today’s world LOTS of children are getting sick and needing to change appointments.
