My Daughter is Sick

Hello everyone,
Last Wednesday, my daughter´s teacher called me and told me that my daughter wasn´t feeling well. It was my day off so I picked her from school right away. She had an headache and fever. I went to the pharmacy, bought antipyretic and started medicating her. At night, I cooked chicken soup but she didn´t eat because she couldn´t swallow.
The next day, I took her to her babysitter´s house while I went to work. When I picked her up she wasn´t feeling better so I took her to the hospital. She was diagnosed amigdalitis and started taking antibiotic yesterday night. Today, I had to miss my morning shift to take care of her. She´s feeling better now but has to stay home until the fever drops.
Since I started working, last April, it´s the first time I miss my job. I feel a little guilty but I have no choice. Besides her dad, which currently is away, I don´t have anyone to look after my daughter when she´s sick. Her health is way more important to me than my job but I need to work too.
Once my vacations will start next Monday, I´m willing to work one shift to compensate today. Maybe my chief will agree.
See you soon.
