Red, hot baby

Lauren's been running a fever since early Tuesday morning. The highest it got to was 39ºC yesterday morning. She's been taking her paracetamol every 6 hours, but the fever seems to return before the 6 hours are up. When the fever gets a little too high, she gets a little listless and loses her appetite. Breaks my heart to see her like that. But as the doc said, babies build resistance by fighting viruses, so she'll have to work this one out. Poor little baby. We're just monitoring her temperature every few hours now.

On an aside, she developed double eyelids these past 2 days - first on her left eye yesterday, and this morning, her right!
