There is nothing worse than having a sick kid. You feel helpless. It breaks your heart to see them uncomfortable and you don't know what to do to help them. It's even worse when they can't talk yet. They can't tell you what hurts or whats the matter. You don't want to be one of "those" parents who run to the doctor for everything but, you know if you wait to long it will be worse. 103.7 fever seems like a lot. It must be. Then the doctors office sounds so calm and you feel like your over reacting. Well the best thing you can do is follow your instincts. God gave you that child to care for and he will guide you. I remember people criticizing me when Cassie was so sick all the time. " You run that child to the doctor for everything", they would say. I found out the hard way that she couldn't fight anything on her own. She needed the doctor to help her body to get well. If I didn't take her at the first sign of sickness she would end up in the hospital every time. To all you young mothers, follow your gut. Do what you think is right. God has given you a special bond with your babies and he will help you take care of them when you need him.
