A moment of frustration

We had a feverish babe last night as we think more teeth are on the way. Today she won't sleep a wink. No naps. Period. I'm getting to the point where I just don't understand this anymore. We have two good days and then four bad ones in a row. Everything I read about kids teething is that they have a day or two of roughness followed by the tooth popping through. Nowhere have I come across miserable teething woes that are months long.

Yes I'm worn out; yes I'm exhausted, and yes this is really frustrating.

But that's me. What is the hardest thing in all of this is not being able to soothe our child. I want to cry watching her cry. Yes I would like rest, but I can't rest till she sleeps peacefully. I can't stand to see her hurting and not being able to do anything about it. This is teething for crying out loud! Shouldn't we be able to soothe this away?

Just said a Divine Mercy Chaplet for you. I imagined the rays of light coming from Christ's heart into your present situation to bring you His love and mercy.
