There’s nothing that makes you feel as helpless as a parent as seeing your children suffering and not being able to do anything about it.  This morning, my daughter Claire (who is one day shy of one month old) woke up with 101.8 fever.   Not a big deal in older kids, but really troubling for someone as young as Claire.   So we rushed her to Quick Care (which should  be labelled Excruciatingly Slow Care) and they decided to admit her to the hospital.

So here I sit in the hospital worried sick about my child.  And there’s absolutely nothing I can do as a parent to fix it.  And Claire can’t tell us what hurts, she just cries a mournful cry.  Not a fun day.
