A rundown of how today's gone so far:
  • Kara's calling for her dad just before 1:30 am, asking for milk and/or water
  • Matt goes downstairs to bring her water to her and finds her with a high fever
  • Matt brings Kara back upstairs with him to update me
  • Matt checks Kara's temperature with the ear thermometer and gets a 38.7° C reading
  • yet another trip to NYGH's luxurious ER!
  • no traffic, fast processing, small victory
  • 3 ½ hours later, toddler is playing with the hospital gurney's paper liner and the attending doctor tells us it's likely a virus and we should manage it with Tylenol and Advil and can leave
  • everyone's back in bed by 6:15 am
  • Kara, ever the early bird (who's kid is this?), wakes at 9:15 am
  • I haul my massively sleep-deprived ass out of bed for the twelve billionth time to see to her and hope that Matt gets enough uninterrupted sleep to function manageably for the rest of the day
  • Matt relieves me at 11:00 am, I head back upstairs to nap until almost 2:00 pm
  • Kara goes down for her first nap of the day shortly after I head back downstairs
And tomorrow she's two!
