Well, it won’t go down as our best holiday weekend, mainly because of poor Clem. On Friday, she was pushed on the playground at school – total face plant. But by Friday evening, her grumpiness went beyond a scraped up face – she was sporting a 102 degree fever! Saturday we took it easy all day but she was super grouchy, tired and just sad, so after a rough night, we took her straight to the doctor. By Sunday morning we had our diagnosis (along with a 104 fever) – Strep. The poor kid was about as pathetic as she gets:
But most importantly, Clementine woke up this morning, a full day of antibiotics in her, as good as new. No sore throat, no fever, an appetite, and back to her goofy self. And no longer contagious! Just in time for a visit to Ame & Paul’s country house out in Temple, Texas! The rain was coming down in buckets, but Paul, chef extraordinare of our new favorite restaurant Pleasant Storage Room roasted a pig and everyone brought delicious sides and desserts. It was really nice to get back out in public, and nice to be back together as a family again, especially because I head to Paris for work in a few days, and then the day I get back, Marc heads to Ithaca for his college reunion. Seems like never a dull moment in the Davis house lately, not that we are complaining!
