La Luz is still sick and Christian and I are both totally frustrated. There doesn't seem to be anything particularly wrong with her other than a ridiculously high fever. The fever comes and goes too. For the better part of the day today she was fever free, but after her nap it was up to 103.6. We are bracing for another long night, one that neither of us likely has the energy to deal with, one that we are both totally dreading. Maybe the Motrin will do its trick and lull her into a peaceful slumber.
Here she is trying her best to play despite feeling lousy. You can kind of see the battle wounds on her right eye:
Christian leaves on Wednesday for Costa Rica so we are both hoping that La Luz is on the mend tomorrow. This time I am really not looking forward to his departure. It is not so much that I am envious that he will be in Costa Rica, which I am. It is more just that I am anxious about being left behind with a hyper-active dog, a sick toddler, and a mountain of work at the office.
It is not all so awful though, some exciting things are also happening in the next few days. My sister-in-law, Susan, is on her way to the hospital to give birth right now and it is killing me that I can't be there. Josh is on his way in town for a few days, which means I will finally get to meet his girlfriend and I think we are going to dinner at Galatoires one night. We should have some good distractions in Christian's absence. Let's just hope that La Luz gets well soon.
