This past Tuesday was my birthday. I turned 31. You don't believe me? Yeah, I don't either but based on my birth certificate that's how old I am. I have at least finally reached that age where I gladly accept people telling me I look younger. When I was 20 & I kept being told I look 15, it wasn't too fun. Now I can totally pass for a 20 year old! And even better is I'm in better shape than I was at 20. Sure I was way skinnier but skinny doesn't equal in shape.
Anyway, we didn't have huge plans for my birthday. Just the usual - go out to eat with the in-laws to the place of my choice, open presents, eat whatever dessert I chose (I'm not much of a cake person).
But then Shaylin got sick. Not longer after my last post she started getting really congested & still had the fever. So I knew we were going to have to stay home. Jeremy did go out & get us Chipotle for dinner. It was what I had wanted for my birthday dinner anyway. I opened my presents from him & Shaylin. Other than that I just comforted my sick little girl.
Of course I'm not mad at her. It's not like she wanted to be sick & did this to me. It just showed us how things are different now as parents & how we have to put Shaylin's needs before our own.
Besides, that night I started getting sick. Woke up at 4am with a fever. I went to the doctor later & they were willing to give me a prescription even though I didn't have all the viral infection symptoms yet. While there, we asked the doctor (who wasn't Shaylin's doctor) to check her ears. She did & said the left one was red. So we called her pediatrician's office & got an appointment right away. Turns out it was a full-blown ear infection. So now she's finally on antibiotics & is slowly getting better.
