Happy Baby Back

I am so happy to finally have my happy baby back! I feel like she has been missing for a whole week. The reason she's been missing is a stupid sick bug took her away from me and left me a grouchy moody baby instead of my sweet happy one.

It snuck into our house on Friday night giving Nellie fevers off and on all afternoon and into the night. Usually if it is just a cold or flu bug the fevers last a day or so and then go away. But this was a nasty mean bug and it kept giving her fevers all weekend so by sunday she was seriously sick and not to mention seriously grouchy. Well you would be too if this sick bug bit you. I even almost took her into urgent care on Sunday night. She made it till Monday and we got the first available appointment with the Pediatrition.

When we walked into the office the first thing everyone said was how pale Nellie's face was. This was a serious bug and you could tell by the way she was acting that she was miserable. The doctor and lab people poked and prodded her all day trying to figure out what was wrong with her and which sure didn't help. The doctor poked her to get a cath for some pee and the Lab people poked her twice to get her blood. But thankfully it was all worth it. She had a urinary tract infection bug a pretty bad one. Almost bad enough to take her to the hospital but thankfully not. She got a shot of antibiotics on monday and a perscription on tuesday. But her tummy didn't like the perscription so it was back to the doctor on Wednesday for another shot and another perscription. Finally today she had beat the bug back enough to start feeling better.

She is smiling and laughing and making happy faces again it is like I have my wonderful happy girl back and I'm so glad.
