Sick Kids Make Me Sad

October 5th, 2009

The only thing worse than having a sick kid is taking your sick kid to the doctor and being told there’s nothing they can do for her.

Miss Mouse has been under the weather for a couple weeks. It started as a cold with cough, and the cough has lingered. And lingered. And lingered. Instead of going away and leaving us in peace, the darned cough seems to be getting worse.

Last night, she was up half the night hacking.

So today we took her in to the doctor — who looked in her ears and listened to her chest and said “Well, that all looks good. There’s not much we can do. It’s just a cough. You’ll have to wait it out.”

Gee, thanks. That makes me feel so much better when she’s up there crying in between coughs because she wants to sleep and can’t.
