Taking her Medicine

Today's gift is taking her medicine.

My daughter was home sick today...again...with strep throat. Being nonverbal she has signs she gives me to indicate she has strep....they are always the same.

Late yesterday afternoon I took her in for a strep test...and bam...positive. Mother knows best, right.

I hate it when she is sick for various reasons, but one of the main reasons is because usually it means more medicine she has to take. Every day she takes two medications...this doesn't change. Now for the next ten days she has to add one more to her list.

She is used to her normal two medications and doesn't mind them. But sometimes she doesn't care for her new medicines which makes it difficult to give to her. This time she doesn't mind it...and it is a good thing since she is taking it three times a day!

I sure do hope she feels better as today she was one tired little girl. After 14 hours of sleep I would have thought she would be ready to go...not so much. She still had a low key day. The only good thing that happens when she isn't feeling well is you get lots of good snuggles in!

Here is a quote for today...

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down- Mary Poppins

*has anyone tried this for real?*
