every last brain cell is fried, gone - kaput!
I suppose procrastinating Christmas preparations and burning the midnight oil are taking their toll on me, as well as the baby's having been ill. She had 6 days in a row of 103.5 fevers for which Tylenol had no effect and the doctor could find no apparent cause. She was sleeping for an hour and then was listless for an hour - for 6 days! She stumped the doctors.
I knew it was something that just had to work it's way through her, but I also knew the fastest way for her to get over it was to show up at the doctor's office so they could shrug their shoulders and collect $20. Twice.
This time, it took 4 days to work. I was getting a bit worried there for a minute. She was not at all herself. She cuddled, she sat still, and wouldn't eat anything but yogurt or 'proot'.
Everything is now back to normal, and at a much larger volume. Goodness, I miss the cuddles!
One side benefit: no binky the last two nights.
