She's been sleeping.
She's been sleeping for almost 8.5 hours.
She's only been awake for roughly an hour and a half today; she stirs and screams, kicking her legs, writhing, moaning.
She's only awake for a moment or two, and then she's out again.
Thank God she's sleeping through. From what I can gather in her wakeful moments, the pain seems to be worse than normal. She doesn't want to be touched or moved at all. She's a bit violent with the kicking and squirming. We were worried she is passing out, because of how suddenly she drops from consciousness, but the pediatrician said that as long as she isn't turning blue it isn't hurting her. One thing of the list-o-worries.
So the current things I am worried about are that:
*She has slept so long and has been conscious so little today.
*She hasn't peed since her overnight diaper.
*She hasn't taken anything in all day long, and has thrown up a handful of times.
*She is now feverish on top of the episode.
*Her senses go on high alert when she is ill and I don't know if we will be able to get fluids into even after she wakes up.
All of this could amount to nothing, she could wake up and be a-okay, drink her fluids like a champ and the medicine could break her fever. Or it could looking something like this. And nobody...NOBODY...wants that.
Wasn't I just saying how completely unstressed I have been? I've got to learn to keep my mouth shut.
Josh took BubTar to the Go-Karts to keep the house quiet. The only sound to be heard is the clacking of the keys on my keyboard, and the occasional sound of a worried mother tiptoeing into her sweet sick baby's bedroom to make sure everything is still okay.
Edited to add: She just woke up, and the first thing she did was ask for a bottle. Whew. As long as she keeps it down, we're good.
