restless night

Last night was pretty hard on all of us: The babies fell asleep waaay too early, meaning they were sure to wake up in the middle of the night and not sleep again until it got light. Then Nam came down with symptoms of food poisoning around midnight and started cramping very badly. She tried to tough it out, but at around two in the morning, she called her sister to come take her to the hospital while I stayed with the babies.
They gave her a muscle relaxant shot and she was instantly better. She was back at home a little after three. Both babies woke up and I fell asleep holding a hysterically grinning Mina on the couch. The rest is a blur, but there were definite times we had to take turns attending a crying baby while the other got some precious sleep. Tonight should be better.

    She’s got such a happy personality!
    Hope Nam is fully recovered and that you all get rest. Thankfully, no one I know has died from baby-caused sleep exhaustion! You just feel like you might!
