A week ago, the Monkey Mama was spending the night in a hospital with an acute but still undiagnosed ailment. It got better.

Tonight, the Monkey Mama is in a different hospital,and for a different reason. The newest addition to our family was admitted with a fever as a precautionary measure. The fever broke yesterday or the day before, under the unwavering vigilance of the Monkey Mama. The little one will be released tomorrow if all goes well. It was a very unsettling dark cloud, but not without its silver linings.

All things considered, hospitals are very uncomfortably furnished places, full of people who are employed to wake you up at short intervals to take vital statistics. Hospitals are not restful places for new moms to recuperate from childbirth.
