Sick Day

Sáin started to feel sick yesterday evening. I knew she was really sick when she didn’t finish her homework. (I feel blessed that she is the type of kid that loves school and homework is usually something she looks forward to.) By 6:00 she was asleep on the couch and by 8:00 she was back in bed. As sick days go this is far from the worst. No vomiting, no ketones, highs in the 200s and no real fever. Sáin seems to have gotten the respiratory virus making its way around the Seattle area. Last year at this time we were back at Children’s with the flu so I know things could be so much worse. That said, I am frustrated with her asthma. Isn’t one disease enough?

In the last year Sáin’s asthma has gotten significantly worse. She’s now on daily medication and an inhaler. Between diabetes supplies and asthma supplies, traveling and customs are a lot of fun. I can’t wait for international customs in May! (Thank God for all encompassing travel letters from Children’s!)
