As soon as I heard Solana’s teacher on the other end of the line, I knew something was wrong. Miss Donna explained Solana’s temperature had reached 101. I immediately felt the obliged guilt every mom feels when something is wrong with her child, and there’s nothing she can do.
It didn’t take me long to get to the Children’s Courtyard, and to find my feverish daughter trying to make the best out of her situation…playing.
The doctor said she had a bacterial infection. He gave her an antibiotic (not amoxicylin) to kill the infection. While I’m thankful, it’s so hard to see her sullen, watery eyes look at me as if she is asking me to make it better. I hate seeing her this way. Evenso, in this instance Solana has shown strength like never before. She’s only cried minimally; nothing like when she had her bad teething episode or when she broke out in hives. God love her!! ‘Cuz I do.
