Brooke is a sicko!
Finals week in school. Perfect attendance for the 6th grade! Brooke is on her way. Always at school, always wanting to learn, always wanting to spend time with her friends… One week from her birthday party to celebrate 12 years!! Ready to organize great social events to kick of the summer!! Wake up Sunday morning with a fever! What is this? A curve ball in our plans? The plans from the eyes of Brooke. Do you remember the feeling of being at the end of the 6th grade year? All you could think about was running the halls during the last week of school, playing with your friends, and trying to figure out what everyone’s summer plans were? Those were the times. Well poor Brooke can’t do it! She has been home with a high fever for 3 days. A quick visit to the clinic inside of HEB on Sunday afternoon tells us she has a virus from a “pampered” nurse assistant (who was more interested in how her doctor’s robe looked on her than actually examining Brooke.) We allowed her to go to school on Thursday because her fever finally went away. Trena and I both recommended she stay home and rest another day. “No!! I want to see my friends…. I am fine” replied Brooke. I tell her that I can’t come and pick her up if she is sick at school. Trena says the same thing. “Brooke if you really want to go to school then you can’t complain about being tired, or not feeling well in class. Don’t even ask to see the nurse unless your dyeing.” I come home from work and take one look at poor Brooke and notice she is as sick as before. I feel horrible. Rebecca tells me when she got on the bus (Brooke is picked up from the 6th grade campus first) she could tell her baby sister was struggling. Trena makes an appointment at the doctor’s office for Friday. Brooke is staying home again. Will it ever end? The poor knucklehead just wants to go back to normal and get back into the circle she has created for herself at the school.
