Meggers and I have been sick since Sunday with that horrible cough that’s going around, poor Meg fell asleep last night with a stuffy nose. She has this habit of picking her nose to fall asleep. I don’t think she picks as much as she just lays with her finger in her nose, a comfort thing maybe? Sometimes she’ll just rest her finger on her face like she’s pointing up it and then she’s out for the count.
4:30AM this morning I was awaken by Meghan crying, I sat up and quickly realized she’d fallen out of bed. I jumped out of bed, scooped her up, flipped on the light and started checking her over to see if she’d hurt herself… two legs, two hands, ten fingers, ten toes, nothing broken, everything looked good till I smoothed her hair back to kiss her forehead… she had a huge egg. I freaked out a bit, it was still rising and Meg kept saying she was tired. I woke Erich and we hopped in the car to take her to the ER to get Meggers checked out.
Meg looked like she had a black eye too but it was actually a mosquito bite from the night before (poor kid can’t catch a break). When we got to the hospital they got us in pretty quick, the doctor checked her out, said he wasn’t too concerned and told us what to watch for over the next 24 to 48 hours.
We we’re released and Meggers received some stickers for her bravery. So today Meggers is home from school again. We’re spending the day playing games, catching up on homework and I’m sure some ice cream or an ice pop might be involved. ~Grin~
