Yesterday was pretty bad. She pretty much cried all day. At one point she had either been whining or crying for like 3 hours. So I was VERY frustrated and flustered. My crowning "WORST MOTHER OF THE YEAR" award moment was when i called my mother to see how much whiskey I should give Faith to make her sleep. (she hadn't taken a nap all day) She was so miserable and I thought if she could just sleep then that would give her some relief. Her ear was just in so much pain. She sat there holding it and crying. . .anyway when my mother heard how flustered I was she came over and gave me a break (Jere's school day) By her bedtime Faith was smiling and obviously feeling alittle better. This morning she is playing and talking and sneezing. and coughing. LOL She's still sick but just not as miserable THANK GOD! LOL I don't know if I could have taken it for another day. Thanks for everyone's prayers.

Hi Sharon,

TG Faith is doing better!! (((HUGS))) sick kids are draining especially when there's not much you can do once you've given them meds but hold them. AND you can only hold them for so long!

Woohoo for Mom to the rescue!

Enjoy your quieter day, (((sleepvibes)))for everyone!

I'm so glad your Mom could come and help you out. Anlyone would be at the end of their rope after having a sick child for so long. A crying baby is stressful. I'm glad she is feeling better today. It sounds like the medication has finally kicked in. Have a great weekend. Judy

I'm glad that she is feeling better. Don't feel bad about your "worst mother moment" we all have them. I hope she keeps improving.
