Clarissa suffers through her cold

Clarissa has been sick for several days, and I took her to the doctor today to make sure she wasn’t going to get pneumonia. So far she just has a little infection in her lungs, so the doctor told me to watch her and make sure she doesn’t suddenly get a high fever. In the meantime, I am dousing her nose with saline spray and suctioning out her snot.

She is really stealing my heart with how bravely she is handling this cold. It is a nasty one and half the time I fear she will choke on her mucus. Last night she did just that before vomiting twice. My poor baby. But I love her so much for being so sweet and soldiering through the suffering.
