Resourceful

So went spent the majority of last night in the Emergency Room at Beaumont. Belle had sudden symptoms of a severe UTI with a high fever, so we took her to Urgent Care about 8:30 Tuesday night. The urgent care doc worried the infection might be in her kidneys and decided she needed to be treated at a higher level care facility with possible inpatient admission.

So, needless to say, when we returned home at 3:00 am Wednesday morning, we all were depleted. I let my sick one sleep in until about 11:30, and decided we would just skip nap time today so she would be able to go to bed at a decent time tonight.

By 3:00 this afternoon, she was begging for a nap, but I was doing my best to keep her awake. Finally, while I was distracted cutting veggies for our veggie soup (which was soooo good, by the way), she took matters into her own hands. I heard her door shut, but continued chopping thinking that if she was quietly distracted, I could get supper finished.

About 15 minutes later, I realized it had been quiet too long & went to discover why. This is what I saw:
She's not yet strong enough to crawl into her crib, so she placed her favorite 'sos' blanket into her baby doll's crib and climbed in to take a nap. If mommy wasn't going to help a sick girl out, that girl just has to take care of herself the best she can! I let her sleep till Aron got home & here she is climbing out of bed after a satisfying siesta.

How sweet is that! Poor Belle - still can't believe how fast it hit her! Just happy that she is getting better now.
