My second daughter isn't feeling well

I got a call from my kids' daycare a little after 3 this afternoon. The lady at the daycare explained to me that my daughter was sick and was throwing up. I obviously left as soon as I got the call. While getting them ready, she got sick again. She got sick once more since we arrived home. She's clearly not feeling well. As a parent, it's hard to see your kids not feeling well. But that's the way it is sometimes. We all get sick. I just hope she feels better soon.

I cried many tears when kay was sick. I wished I could take the pain myself. I am sure your baby will be better soon.

Thanks. It's hard as a parent to see your child sick. I so wish I could be sick for my daughter.

@dodo19 That is the case even when she is an adult. Mine is 22 and I still feel that way.

@sharon6345 Once a parent, always a parent. I'm sure it won't change.

It's hard to see how small children suffer by sickness. The best she can do is to get asleep so that her body can rest and recover soon.

It's not easy to see them sick. Right now, she's just in my bed resting. We're watching some Scooby doo while rests in our bed with me. I want to make sure she gets as much rests as possible.

Nothing is worse than seeing your child sick. And unfortunately, it's just part of life, although you wish you could protect them from all the germs and illnesses out there! I hope your daughter feels better quickly.

It definitely is hard. I always wish I could be sick instead of them, but unfortunately they are going to get sick. Thankfully she is feeling a lot better.

@dodo19 Just look at it from a positive point of view...every time they get sick, they are actually building up their immunity system! The more they are sick when they are little, the stronger their immune system will be when they get older.

@moffittjc That's very true. I may not like it, but it's good for their immune system. Thanks!

I think to remember that both your daughter did not feel well a few days ago. Have you seen a doctor?

Last weekend it was just a cough. Nothing too serious. But it is true. It wasn't all that long ago. I might take them to the clinic to see a doctor.

@dodo19 I think it's better, it would be a shame if they were sick for Christmas.

@LadyDuck I know. I'm glad that it's all happening this weekend as opposed to next week. Christmas is usually pretty packed and it would have been sad to miss it due to sickness.

I am sorry to hear that. I can understand your worries. Occasionally I will pick up a phone from the teacher and notify me that my child is sick in the school. I rush to the school immediately and then take him to home or go to see a doctor. I hope your daughter will get well soon. Best wishes!

It can be worrisome when it happens. She did seem to be feeling a little better before she went to bed, which is good. So, I think she'll be feeling better soon. If not, then it'll definitely be a trip to the doctor's. Thankfully there's a clinic close by.

@dodo19 Sometimes I think vomit is not a very bad thing. As long as you throw out the bad food or something like that, you can get well sooner. It is better that it stays in your stomach. Usually this kind of problem is not so serious. Sometimes taking the medicine once or twice will be recovered.

@youless That's very true. Hopefully, whatever it is will be out of her system soon enough.

With all the throwing up she should have whatever it is out of her system soon. I hate getting sick. And, that feeling of nausea. Awful. So unfair that kids have to get sick at all.

I don't like that nauseating feeling either. Not pleasant. I don't like seeing my kids get sick. I wish they didn't have to get sick at all. Thankfully, she did seem a little better before going to bed. So, I'm hoping that with a good night sleep, whatever she had will be gone.

Yup. That's life as a parent. It's never easy or pleasant. Thankfully, it's just the one who sick at the moment. I just hope no one else gets it.

@dodo19 One is enough but they sometimes take turns. I remember chicken pox. As each kid got well, the next one would come down with it. But, kids are worth it.

Did you have her check to the doctor? what was the result of it? I hope there's a proper medication for her illness. You think it's something she ate?

I didn't take her to the doctor's yet. I thought maybe best to just take her home to rest. She did seem a little better before bed, which does seem like a good sign. But if she's not feeling better, then we'll definitely take her to the doctor's. It could have been something she ate, but I'm not sure.

It is awful when your children is sick. Often there is little you can do but comfort them. I hope she is better soon.

It's definitely not easy to see your kids sick. I definitely don't like him. As you said, sometimes, all you can do is comfort them, be there when they're sick, and let them know that you're there and it's going to be okay. Thankfully, she did seem a little better before she went to bed. Fingers crossed.
