Wake me up in a week


When you are scared out of your mind because your daughter turns lethargic out of nowhere, screams that her stomach hurts, cannot eat and clings to you all night long while she burns up with a fever so your mind wanders to horrible places and obscure diseases.

And then in the morning she wakes up (still with a fever but…) hungry and demands not just her breakfast but yours as well and doesn’t understand why you are keeping her home from school today. And also hides the thermometer because she finds it irritating that you keep trying to take her temperature.
