A Very Sick Bundle

For reasons still unknown to us, Charissa got very sick on Wednesday night. She woke up from her afternoon nap with a temperature of 103.5. Other than the fever, nothing was wrong with her - she had no other symptoms and she was perfectly happy. When we got her up from her evening nap, her temperature was still 103 and then she started throwing up. When babies get sick and throw up it's really hard to know how to handle it because they can't say, "Oh - I feel sick and I think I'm going to throw up" and then you have time to get to the bathroom. They just throw up. Wherever. On whomever. Thankfully she contained it on the changing table and didn't get any on us (that wasn't the case the other time she threw up). For the rest of the evening she was just pitiful. She laid on our chests and wanted to be held. Nothing else. She didn't want to eat, drink, play ... nothing. Charissa woke up once during the night, but I just went in there and laid down with her and she went right back to sleep.

And then, in typical Charissa fashion, the next morning she woke up and was fine. No fever, no vomiting, no nothing. I think every time Charissa has gotten sick she'll be real sick one afternoon and evening and then the next morning all is well. Which is fine by me - I hope that's a pattern she maintains her whole life.
