Yep, got the call today at 2:15. Fever of 101.6 degrees. Called the doctor before picking her up to make sure I knew what to do. Give her a little Tylenol to make her comfortable and keep an eye her, that’s about it.

Seems there was a bit of an epidemic this week in Infant 1 and 2. Infant 1 is currently 11 babies between the ages of 6 weeks and 9 months. Infant 2 is maxed out at 12 babies between the ages of 9 months and 18 months. So 23 total babies. Well, what started in Infant 2 spread to room 1 and yesterday there were 12 babies out with fevers. 12! Today there were at least 4 or 5 out still in Infant 1 and now Caitlin is added to the list. Rumor is it takes a few days for the fever to break, but she should be fine by the time Monday rolls around. Missing work right now is not good.

So yeah, sick baby 😦 She fell asleep in the car on the way home. Hopefully she gets some rest and then we’ll have some Tylenol and a bottle.
