Ellie's Lungs

Poor baby girl has pneumonia. Second time this year. Argh. I feel bad for her. I wish I could be the one with sore lungs. Not Ellie. Welcome to motherhood.

Thankfully, her ears and throat look fine, so she's on some hard-core antibiotics, and if they work the same as last time, she'll be back to her perky little high-strung self by mid-week.

I must admit that I do love the snuggling, and 14-hour nights, though. Tee hee.

It's weird what happens to your heart when your kid is sick. It's as if I've become hypersensitive, and every little noise or movement coming from that crib makes me nervous. I'm ready to bound in there, sweep up my snotty ball of love, and hug her all night long if she needs it! It's strange to think of my mom feeling the same way when I was little and sick (heck, I still run to my mommy when I'm sick!).

Pray that le bebe will recover quickly, that I'll have extra patience during her awake-times, which are filled with incessant whining and noise-wiping, and that it will be a LONG time in between colds-turned-into-lung-infections this time!
