Today I had a doctor's appointment scheduled for Sarah because it seems like she always feels sick. I really felt silly scheduling the appointment - "What's wrong with her?" they asked. Well...she's tired, cranky, whiny, constantly complains of headaches, went to the nurse twice last week because she was nauseous, says her throat hurts, coughs a lot, and just seems unhealthy. "Any fever?" Nope. Maybe she's just a complainer, I'm thinking. I talked to her teacher about it, and we discussed being a little less nurturing and trying to toughen her up. I gave her an incentive for having 7 "healthy" days, with no complaints.
So what did the doctor say? Well, he couldn't do any lab work, because she has STREP! Ugh. Right then we decided that she's definitely not a complainer (he asked her 3 times if her throat hurt, and she said no each time). So when she gets better we're going to do some blood work and see if we can find out what's going on. I wonder if she has allergies. Whatever it is, I hope we can figure it out soon and help her feel better.
