Sick baby

Yeah, it really is 2:00 in the morning. I just put our daughter to back bed. When she's sick its such a pain; not 'cause you have to take care of her but because she feels bad. This could easily just be her body reacting to some back baby teeth rupturing into her mouth (I am just loath to call them "molars" although that may be what they are). Then again, it could be a virus. Her temp is 101 so we gave her some Children's Strength Tylenol which can help her break the fever and which alleviates some of the symptoms associated but that's all we're doing is reacting to the symptoms.

It's easy to take for granted that once you've established a health pattern doctors can routinely judge common ailments but that takes years. When your body is still developing it can be a tossup whether you'll develop allergies, asthma or other troubling conditions.

Ah well, back to sleep for another few hours and we'll check again later.
