We walked into the house and she wouldn't eat lunch (ok she is really sick). She went and laid down on the ottoman in the living room and tried to sooth herself to sleep. I tried to get her to eat but quickly gave up and put her down for a nap. When she woke up she was running a fever although not a high one so I still thought it was just a sinus infection. By Tuesday her sinus stuff was worse, she was getting her typical sickie rash on her face and her fever was running around 103°, which I knew meant strep.
Off to urgent care we went and sure enough it was strep AND a sinus infection. We are so thankful for antibiotics after just two doses she is already way better but, was super sad to miss her 3rd day of school.
As I spent many hours rocking her and staring into her beautiful blue eyes in the middle of the night lately, I couldn't help but to remember not long ago this little princess didn't have anyone to comfort her or sing her songs to make her feel better. It still makes my heart sad that for 3 1/2 years she was on her own.
There are still SO many orphans out there that don't have anyone to snuggle them, please continue to pray, advocate and donate to Reece's Rainbow or other orphan advocacy groups.
Thankful for God placing her in our family and for great medicines that do the trick!
Hurry back to health sweet Dariya!
