I need a clone
Both girls are feeling rotten. Frieda came down with a fever this afternoon and Lina's face and body colour is not even an off-white anymore (a true PALEthorpe, the palest we have seen her so far I think). Lina is also neutropenic so we are desperately trying to separate the two girls as Lina would be hospitalized if she were to spike a fever right now :( We closed the gate in the hallway and no matter on which side of the gate I am, it seems to be the wrong side. The sick child on the other side of me and the gate wants a piece of me as well. Mike and Oma are trying to fit as many snuggles in as possible but both my girls just want MAMA when they are feeling sick. Actually that's not exactly true, both girls would love to snuggle with me and each other. Lina kept yelling "Frie-da where are you" and Frieda yellew back from her "I am here but I am sick so we cannot kiss or hug"
Off to BCCH with Lina in the morning for blood work and I assume a transfusion. I am mentally preparing for a long day ...
Hopefully my poor and very brave and understanding Frieda girl is feeling better tomorrow. I know it is only a fever but I wish I could just stay with her all day tomorrow to comfort her.
