Wanting Relief for Gwen and Sleep for Her Mom

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Gwen, the 3 year old, is really sick now. For a couple days she had too many symptoms to take her to the YMCA, but she didn't feel bad. I thought her cold was like the one I just got over, not too intense although it hung on a while. But now Gwen is miserable, whining and crying, and up almost all last night. Her mom (my daughter) took her to the doctor and got her medicine this morning so I hope DD gets some sleep tonight and that Gwen feels better tomorrow.

I ran in my neighborhood this morning while DD took Gwen to the doctor. I just did 2 quarter mile intervals under 8 min per mile pace. The rest of the time I was running comfortably around 10 minutes per mile. Finished 3.9 miles. Because Gwen was sick, I rocked and cuddled her a lot today. I am totally confident that Gwen will be completely well soon; hope that she gets relief right away.

    I just read your status update. I'm glad she's doing better. It's so hard when the little ones are sick.

    Poor Gwen. Sometimes it is harder on the adults than the child when she is ill. I hope today is better all around.

A friend and I walked/ran around town after supper last night. That is one of the advantages of a longer evening. It was just over 2 miles by the time I was home. We are both beginners so our pace was very easy. I got the 'Running Until You're 100' book from the library.

    Really bad bugs out there right now. Up in BC, Canada, they are having an epidemic of measles...

My classmate has been in bed for 4 days, and she has 3 prescriptions..... Powerful...

    It's so scary when our grandchildren are sick; they seem so small and fragile. I am sure that with medicine and family love Gwen will be up in no time!

    What a wonderful grandma you are! The little
ones love cuddle time when they are ill and I
am sure DD needs the sleep. Give her a hug for
me and yes, one for you too!

    How wonderful the way you and your DD work together to give comfort to little Gwen (and you got some exercise in too). Nothing like team work!
