Sick, but so full of energy

Tomoe may have a cold, but she sure doesn’t act like it.  She’s like the Energizer bunny.  She keeps going and going and going.  She hasn’t even had a nap yet today.  Just constant playing ever since she woke up around 9 hours ago.  It’ll be nice when she finally takes a nap.  Here are some of her playtime pictures.

It’s a family cold

Well, we all have colds.  My symptoms started yesterday with a slight sore throat.  I just had a cold last month, and now I have another one.  My wife already had a cold, then Tomoe came down with one, and now me.

Tomoe’s cold is evolving.  It started out as just a runny nose, not unlike Niagara Falls.  Constant snot falls.  Tonight, as I was feeding her dinner, she made big snot bubbles with her nose.  Every time she breathed out, big bubbles came out of her nose.  But that’s not all.  Last night, she started coughing.  She isn’t coughing a lot, but it’s a very typical looking cold.  Despite this, she’s still got a tremendous amount of energy. Even with a cold, she doesn’t slow down.

Tonight, after being fed and given some very warm formula, she refused to sleep for more than an hour.  She spent that time talking to herself in bed, until she finally started crying.  Still hungry.  So, I fed her some more formula, that’s 350 mL in 1 1/2 hours, and she finally fell asleep.  Hopefully, she’ll still be asleep when we go to bed.

Tomorrow’s my day off, and it’ll be a day of rest for us.
