not the best

Have you ever:

A. Given up on trying to sleep down the hall,
B. parked your pillow and blanket next to the crib, closed your eyes, and
C. attempted to will a cough to settle?

And were you also unsuccessful?

Maybe the heart-breakingest thing about this bug that refuses to break camp in Alice’s chest is how hard she tries to smile through it.

We’ve been to the doctor’s three times in the past two weeks. Her vitals show that, between the first and last appointments, she’s gained 5 ounces and a quarter of an inch. My, at that rate …

I think she’s getting better. I hope she feels better. Been long enough. We are so over it.
