Yesterday was K's developmental check-up! We traveled down to Syracuse (2.5 hours) to a very quick appt. K did everything they wanted her to do and we were told to not come back. She is a developmentally perfect! :)
She slept the entire car ride, there and back. She would wake up for a few minutes, realize she was still in the car seat, and then go back to sleep. At one point, I looked in the rear view mirror and she was awake, and the face she was making- was that of a very angry/annoyed little girl. She wanted out! haha
On the other note, we were stuck in a stuffy car yesterday, all day, and I was infected with a cold- but did not know this!!!! I woke up this a.m. with a sore throat and a stuffy nose... :( I'm very nervous that K will def get this as my contagious time was stuck in a car with her, no fresh air! So I'm very nervous that she will be sick soon and I'm not quite sure what to do. I have read some of your blogs about your baby having a cold- and that they won't eat/sleep... the eating thing- will frustrate the crap out of me.. but how do I get food into her? Do I take her to the hospital as soon as she shows one itty bitty symptom? Is there any med I can give her to help her breathe/clear up the nose? I know I know- you are all thinking- she isn't sick yet Kate!! But I'm want to be prepared for the worst-
I can't even believe I'm sick tho- yes I am back at work, but I take prenatal vitamin as they are very good for you, and airborne twice a week, and at work, I wash my hands constantly- and if a kid touches me I hand sanitize.. if I have to tie their shoe, hold their pencil, hold their hand, I wash!!! I take two showers a day, one for the day, and two for after work! She doesn't touch the clothes I wear to work as after my shower, I put clean ones on- I just don't know what else I can do to stay healthy- and here I am with a stinkin crappy cold!!! ARG!!
OOOOOOOOOOOH and my CDH doctor in Syracuse- she recommended that I get the H1N1 shot and that will be best for K as she isn't too sure that they'll even give the H1N1 to under a 1 year old. But she said if I get it- then K would be protected from it. And I would rather me be the test subject than her!! :) And she said I was one of the "high priority" people as I work in the school system! So yay- there goes my dilemma.
Anyway- if you have any tips on how to care for K if she gets my cold, please share. Please, oh please!!
