Rough Day

Jo had a pretty rough day yesterday. She was a miserable baby running a temperature. She didn’t want me to put her down, and yet would fall asleep while I was holding her…only to wake up the minute I went to put her down. She had a pretty steep temperature even with Tylenol and Motrin in her system.
On top of feeling lousy, when we went out to get some Motrin (baby-sitter was still out) I put her car seat down in the car port and managed to open the door into her head. Not hard enough to make a mark, but hard enough to upset her.
Then in the evening she was feeling somewhat better after I bathed her until Doug head-butted her in the mouth. Then as we were getting the boys in bed Andy started swinging some Mardi-Gras beads and managed to clip her head with the end of them. Poor baby.
Today we were supposed to have a “Well-Baby” check-up but of course we were still sick. Her temperature was down somewhat though still not normal and fortunately they routinely do blood work at nine months so we were able to see that her white blood count was up. So a shot and an antibiotic prescription later and hopefully we are on the road to recovery.
