The critter has been sick for more than a week now, first fever and now his mouth. We’re on our second visit to the doctor within a week as I write this. He cries a lot and for a long time the only thing he can manage is sleep (intersected with a lot of crying), movies (thank you Miyazaki for Totoro, Ponyo and Kiki) and nursing. Today he’s a little better, and he even been playing a little bit! It’s such a joy for me to see him be cheerful and funny again.
But I’m worried he has herpes on his mouth (there’s a little wound that looks suspiciously like it), and what would that do to our nursing? Sigh.
