DQs bad day

DQ has had the worst day of her life today.

First she had to go for her 2 year checkup at the doctor. She had get one shot and her finger pricked. The entire clinic knew she was not happy about any of this.

Next we stopped by her new preschool she will be going to starting in September. She was enjoying the toys in her new room when all of a sudden she tripped on her own two feet and fell onto a corner of a table. She got a cut right below her eyebrow and we went back to the doctor's office. Instead of stitches they glued her owie shut. I know realize that the past two years of her screaming were only practice for this day. Even the nurse and doctor commented on the strength of her lungs. It took both the nurse and I to hold her still for the doctor to put in the glue.

DQ took a good nap after all this trauma and got up and played with her sister for a few hours. I figured we were in the clear - she was over it. However about 6:00 tonight she started acting really whiny and kept saying OWIE...I tried to give her some Tylenol, but she refused (the bottle expired in 2006, but I am sure it would still work). She went to lay down on the couch instead of eating dinner. Any of you that has seen DQ eat, knows this is EXTREMELY odd for her. I picked her up to put on her PJs and noticed she was burning up. I took her temperature and it was 102.5. Yikes! I am hoping the fever is a side effect of the shot she received today and not some kind of infection setting in. I did finally force some Tylenol down her and she is now sleeping.

The glue actually makes the wound look bigger than it actually is.

So this girl is totally healthy all of her life so far and then it all hits the fan on one day? That's so not fair!
