DQ25 - Setback

Paloma woke us up at 4 am sick again. The fever was back, and this time accompanied by stomach pain and diarrhea. All day today she’s pretty much been in bed, and hasn’t wanted to eat anything. Still has headache, too. Still no respiratory symptoms. She’s not horribly ill, not even as sick as a regular nasty cold, but she’s not happy either. I’m a bit worried now because apparently this back-and-forth fever thing is typical of Covid. Nothing we can do but wait and see. 

Just finished dying eggs and setting up the altar with Papa and the kids. It feels weird not to have Rowan with us.

I am guessing you know this but children tend to have more gastrointestinal symptoms and less or no respiratory symptoms with COVID-19. And there is definitely asymptomatic and presymptomatic spread. I am glad you are being cautious with her, and I hope she recovers quickly. We have had to hospitalize some children due to dehydration with this awful illness.

Donna, thank you for the information. I actually didn't know that. She is better again this morning, no fever and no more stomach pain. Still no appetite, that's about it.
