Hope is sick again. My girl who went from a record streak of no barf is now competing for the most barf in a single season.
This morning she threw up BEFORE breakfast, after one or two sips of her morning OJ. Then she threw up after breakfast. Then she threw up after some milk hours later, then after a cracker and some water and then again later after just water.
I know it's irrational but now I'm worried that there is something really wrong with her. She has no fever, she is quite happy a few minutes after each expulsion so although the puking points to a bug of some sort, she doesn't have any other buggy symptoms.
It's normal for parents to have mini-panic attacks about their kids' health. I imagine it is even worse if they've had scares in the past, which thankfully we haven't. But when you read or hear stories about kids who have serious health issues, you can't help but feel blessed that it isn't your kid and worried that it could be. I'm in one of those moments now.
The last three weeks she's been weird: not sleeping much, clingy, throwing up occasionally. I figured it was a tooth coming in but after today I'm wondering if the last three weeks were leading to today and pointing to something more serious.
I know, I know; it is probably nothing more than a bug and I sure hope it is. I'll go to the clinic later to have a doctor allay my concerns but for now, I'm going to sit here and try not to think about the other things it could be.
