I've been coddling her ever since, trying to keep the fever down, draining her staph at every other diaper change, nursing her pretty constantly. She's in so much pain and obviously worn out. Of all the stressors I'm dealing with at the moment, staph is the one that I cannot cope with. It just makes everything else seem impossible.
- Gumball's staph & virus
- Sister's newborn I have not yet gotten to meet
- Debilitating tendinitis in (dammit, of course) my DOMINANT arm
- Impending educational deadlines
- Sibling rivalry at an all-time high (in the fashion of animalistic regression aboard a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean, when everyone else begins to look like hamburgers and hotdogs)
