Curse You, Fragile Human Body!

Baby Girl

My daughter had a high fever last night.  I rocked her, bathed her, gave her water and children’s Tylenol, cuddled her, and sang to her until her fever broke at about 3:00 AM.  Then I went to bed.

This morning I woke up with a headache that progressed to migraine status as the day went on.  The auras, nausea, wishing-that-I-had-an-ice-pick-so-I-could-jam-it-into-my-eyes, the whole deal.  I am now drugged to the teeth and life isn’t quite as bad.

So although I hate it when my writing schedule gets thrown off, today was a gentle day of lying around the house and watching Lady and the Tramp.  Here’s to hoping it all returns to normal tomorrow.

  1. that is a cute kid you have there.

    i was always much more of a beauty and the beast girl myself. or maybe the little mermaid. less of a lady and the tramp, but disney is disney :^)

  2. Thanks for the good wishes, everybody. Today is a much better day.

    Yeah, Samantha, I’m a Sleeping Beauty girl myself, but my daughter is really into dogs right now. “Puppies! Puppies!” She even calls her grandfather “Puppy”. And I couldn’t take 101 Dalmatians One. More. Time. so Lady and the Tramp it is.

    The older Disney cartoons have quite a bit of charm, I’m discovering.

  3. She’s so beautiful, just like you and Nikko (not to dis Luke, but I think she looks like you). I’m glad you’re both feeling better. It’s so hard when they’re sick, and even worse when we’re sick and still have to take care of them.

  4. Oh, curses to migraines! I know that wish-for-an-ice-pick feeling, and feel your pain! So glad you’re better today.
