Still Sick

Rachel is still home sick from school! On Tuesday I was thinking she would get to go back on Wednesday, because she had been fever free all day and seemed to be feeling better, but on Wednesday morning she woke up very congested, and she obviously was not feeling well. When we got home from dropping off the big girls at school, Rachel crawled onto the couch and went to sleep. She slept for about two hours. I got her in to see the doctor about lunch time. The doctor tested for the flu, but it was negative, thank goodness. She also did a throat culture, but the results are not back on that yet. She did find that Rachel had the beginnings of an ear infection, so she was started on antibiotics. The doctor told me to keep Rachel home from school for the rest of the week. I am sure the teacher is glad I have not sent her back yet, because she has become a snot factory. She sneezes at least once an hour, and I have to run with a tissue each time she does! She has also developed a horrible cough. Despite the snot and cough she seems to be feeling better, so I decided to let Rachel go to her horse back riding today. I was glad that she made it through the class without sneezing! I mean you can only ask so much from a volunteer! Below is a video of Rachel riding Flip.
