Sick Baby

Poor Miss CC is sick for the first time.  She woke up this morning with a fever of 102.8, and later vomited.  And she doesn't want anything to eat!  Anyone who knows CC knows how alarming that is! 

Her pediatrician said to keep a close eye on her, but it's not necessary to bring her in.  She probably has a stomach virus, so we are supposed to give her only fluids -- milk and Pedialyte -- for the rest of the day.  She also needs to take acetaminophen (Tylenol) to bring her fever down, but because she's vomiting, I need to use acetaminophen suppositories.  Oy!  As if taking her temperature rectally wasn't undignified enough!

The good news is that it should blow over in 12-24 hours.  In the meantime, CC and I are headed out to CVS to pick up the essentials. 

UPDATE:  By her afternoon nap, CC's temperature was down to 101.8.  I gave her some acetaminophen, and by bedtime tonight it was down to 100.6.  It looks like she is on the mend!
