Exhausted about sums it up

I failed to mention that along with an earache, Sprout had a fever. We don't generally give her meds for a fever, in hopes that the body will take care of what is attacking it; however, we gave her some painkillers for the ear, and that helped the fever a bit the first night.  The second night, not so much. She even started hallucinating, seeing water running across her artwork on her walls, complete with fish swimming in it. Then she saw a lion on her ceiling and dinosaurs and turtles on her pillow.  We called a doctor. They still make house calls here in Egypt, but he wasn't able to come by until 1 a.m.  His verdict: Wait and see. Which is what we had planned to do, but when your toddler starts seeing things, you get a bit scared. At least we did. We'll know Thursday if she needs to have antibiotics or not.

The doc looked at my throat and said I should be on antibiotics, but I'm a bit leery of that, being pregnant and all. I know paracetamol is supposed to be OK for pregnant women, but I don't even like taking that while pregnant.  I'm downing every natural remedy, high-in-antibacterial and/or antioxidant property foods and drinks I can think of. If I don't feel better by Thursday, I'll have the doc look at me when he takes a look at Sprout.

OK, that's about all I have the energy for now. Off to bed. It promises to be another sleep-broken night...

That sounds absolutely lousy and rotten, and more than a little scary :-( Hoping you both recover soon.
