Tough Day for Baby Dog
Baby Dog had to go home from daycare today because she was vomiting. The daycare people figured it was something she ate, because she wasn’t feverish or otherwise symptomatic. It happened right after lunch. We think some leftover fishcakes that were in an imperfectly sealed Tupperware container are the culprit. Mama Dog called the Dr. Chuck-Morris’ office and was told that it could be a gastrointestinal virus that’s going around too. Based on Baby Dog’s subsequent behaviour, though, that doesn’t seem to be the case; the symptomology they described has not come to pass. In fact, by the time I got home from work Baby Dog was so much her regular self that I wouldn’t have known she’d been sick if I hadn’t been told. The only noticeable difference was that she cried more easily at small frustrations and went to sleep with less fuss at bedtime. She didn’t even ask for the “Bingo” encore after being tucked into the sleep sack. She must have been exhausted. She’s cried out in her sleep and been resettled a couple of times since so we’re braced for a tough night, but I think the daycare was right – bad reaction to food, not a developing illness.
