the "no fair" stance.

this is Spidergirl, captured in her infamous "no fair...." stance. she has it mastered. she's really quite a pleasant child to be around----a blessing indeed---unless she's got strep or an ear infection or a fever---which is almost ALWAYS! because, then, she's just difficult to deal with because she's miserable. (she was diagnosed with strep the day before this picture was taken.)
  • it's no fair that she's had strep 5 times since Fall.
  • it's no fair that she's been on 12 antibiotics in the past 12 months.
  • it's no fair that she's been on 25 antibiotics in the past 3 years.
  • it's no fair that she has allergies and can't enjoy having a pet dog or cat.
  • it's no fair that she's already had surgery to place tubes and remove her adenoids.
  • it's no fair that all of our extra money in our budget goes straight the healthcare industry.
  • it's no fair as her momma, that i have to see my baby so miserable all the time.
  • it's no fair that she has hearing loss from all these repeat infections.
  • it's no fair that we now have to take her to speech therapy because of said hearing loss.
  • it's no fair that she has to have a camera shoved down her throat to examine her voicebox to try to diagnose her hoarseness.
and after that doctor visit this morning, i'm saying
  • it's NO FAIR that we have to go in for another surgery soon(ish) and my baby will be miserable during a week-long recovery from a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy revision.
don't get me wrong.......i know it could be so, so, so, soooo much worse. we are very blessed indeed that her issues are just minor in the big scheme of things. but, really.....don't you think she needs a break?

  1. My son has had strep 3 times since January and I thought that was bad. So sorry for Spidergirl. Good luck with the surgery. I didn't know that strep could cause hearing loss.
