May 9

Daphne's third straight day of fever (101 degrees today) prompted Jennie to schedule a doctor visit. After arriving home from work, I packed up the car and we made our way to the night clinic in Belle Meade. The doctor on duty believes Daphne is getting better but definitely suffered a viral, upper respiratory infection (as indicated by the rash on her chest). No blood work was ordered and guess what? Daphne weighed in at a whopping 11 pounds!

I have eye twitches in both eyes. Both Jennie and I are exhausted for different reasons -- I am sick with a common cold and Jennie feels like an endless baby milk factory. Will it ever get easier? I suppose when Daphne is 18 years old and moving off to college...

Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! Get lots of rest and celebrate with your Mom.

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.

Get some rest if you can! Hope you both feel better soon.

By the way, it will get better before she turns 18! :-)
