The little googy has not been well. We think it’s teething – there’s plenty of drooling, diarrhea and a nasty high temperature without any other symptoms of infection. Most likely it’s her two year molars. I got quite a shock yesterday when I took her temperature (under the arm) and it was 39.6 (103 F). She didn’t even seem that unwell to me. And today it’s been similar, but at least it’s responsive to panadol and goes down pretty quickly.
She’s a very easy patient though, and was in high spirits this morning. The afternoon was an entirely different story. But was content snoozing on my chest or sitting on my lap working on a puzzle. After our trip to the ICU I get a little paranoid with these episodes when they pop up. It can be hard to be entirely rational about it. But, by the same token, I don’t want to take her to the doctor or the hospital unless I’m sure that she needs it because pretty much every time we’ve gone to the doctor she’s caught something and I don’t want to expose her to that if there’s nothing they can do anyway.
But she was definitely worse today, so if it’s getting worse tomorrow I’ll get her checked out, if only for my peace of mind.
