Poor little MM. She got up at 5 this morning and came right into my room. Ususally she plays for a while in her room before coming out. She crawled up into bed with me. She was really wet & it smelled bad. We cuddled for a few minutes, then got her changed. She tried to lay back down with me, which is unusual for her cause she is usually hungry right away. She kept getting up & saying she had to go potty. She was also almost crying while holding herself - she never cries with her high pain threshold. After about the 20th time, DH & I got dressed and took her to the ER, assuming a UTI. She does have a bad UTI, but also a right ear infection & tonsillitis! Oooops! I thought she just had a runny nose & cough. It is so hard to tell with her ASD how sick she is. She is usually just "off". I should have known something was up yesterday when she wanted to stay with Mommy instead of going to Nana's.
Please pass the bad mommy award this way for missing the other infections.
So, she is home today with Daddy & I. I had planned to go get a lot of my Christmas shopping done this morning. No wonder I am not in the mood this year. It is always something!
