It is one of the worst things in the world to see your child sick. My baby had a 103.5 degree fever a few nights ago and we had to rush her to the emergency room. After a day and a half of constant medication and rest, her fever got better. She is now recovering quickly after giving us quite a scare.
It’s a hard thing to deal with. Our children are not able to always communicate how badly they feel. You can just see it in their behavior or the way they look at you that something isn’t right. The road to recovery is not the easiest one either. It could take days or weeks for them to return to the child that you knew. We sit with them and pray to just see a smile on their face again.
So what do you do during this road to recovery? How do you help them feel better?
Here are a few suggestions to help your child rest but not get bored during this time:
None of us like to see our child sick. We would do almost anything to change it. Unfortunately, we can’t always prevent them from getting sick. The best thing we can do when dealing with illness is to take care of them and make them feel better any way we can. Making them smile is how we know they are on their way to recovery.
