[Wednesday 11th December 2013]
Yesterday's notion of "oh maybe it won't be so bad" I'd had from the daytime, when Erika had seemed quite perky, by today seemed like a distant memory. Her fever didn't really subside the whole day, despite giving her as much Calpol as I safely could, and for most of the day she didn't seem to want to play or move about or anything - she just wanted to lie on my chest, half asleep.
The day was followed by probably the worst night of the week - she would only manage to sleep for about 15 minutes before she woke and started crying again. As a result I didn't sleep at all between about midnight and 5am - for added drama I managed to smash a glass on the kitchen floor when trying to get the water jug in the dark, and Erika also threw up on the bed. All in all pretty awful.
