sick day

Today's a sick day. Not for me though; for Erica.

I'm not exactly sure what's wrong with her. Only symptoms: high fever, lethargy. She's definitely not her normal self. She's just laying around. All day long, that's all she's wanted to do.

We were out this morning, went to the library. I needed to return some books/movies. I took my laptop, b/c she likes playing computer games. But even then, she wasn't having fun. She just wanted to leave and come home. That should have been a clue.

I didn't realize it till later. I put in Bob the Builder for her to watch, and then watched Hairspray on my laptop. [Good movie; there was a smile on my face the whole time.] My movie was ending when I realized: she's still watching TV. I hadn't realized that her movie plays over and over and over again. And anyway, its not like her to sit for so long. She loves moving around.

So I went over to her and touched her back. Burning hot.

We're taking it easy now. Just laying around; I don't want to stress her, especially not knowing what it is that's wrong. Hopefully not the flu. Ick!

I hope it turns out to be just one of those short fevers that never really amounts to much. Good luck!

I hope Erica is feeling better soon. I hate when the kids are sick. You just want them to feel better.

I saw Erica this weekend at the 'rents. She didn't seem her normal self then, either.

Poor girl :(
