Poor DD had temperature this evening, been constantly sleepy for 2 days
DH is a medic and isn't overly concerned but as he's out (we were going to the theatre tonight but I decided to stay in and keep an eye on DD) I thought I'd post, for sympathy as much as anything else. DD is 16m and has never been sick before. The last couple of nights she's slept for about 14 hours, then napped for 2.5h in the afternoon (usually about 12h at night, 2h in day). She's really not herself and is just sleepy all the time - wants cuddles and not interested in talking, doing anything physical, or even smiling much. Poor thing was very hot this evening but the temperature seemed to come down OK with Calpol. Her appetite's affected, but she's not off her food altogether.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Think it's the start of something? I just feel so sorry for her, she's gone all babyish and pathetic, normally she's such a toughie
