Teething? Sick? Combo?

Yesterday was not a fun day in our world. D was a little cranky in the morning but went down for a nap. She woke up incredibly upset with a fever of almost 101 and the reddest cheeks I've ever seen on her. I dosed her with tylenol and gave her a cold drink of milk, all of which she promptly threw up. So, we settled into the recliner with a sippy of juice and an afternoon of Dr.90210. She ate some cookies a little later on, and again threw up. As soon as the tylenol started to wear off she would start moaning and crying, so I kept her medicated as much as I could following the tylenol directions.

Finally at about 5 she ate a granola bar and went down for a nap and stayed cool. She got up a bit later when Jeff got home and ate some chicken and had some more cold milk. She spiked another fever later last night and was moaning and pointing to her teeth. Finally she fell asleep in our bed and slept pretty well throughout the night (waking up once for some milk).

This morning she slept in until almost 9:30 and woke up moany but that quickly went away. We had a succesful trip to the grocery store, so I'm hopeful that she is on the mend.

I'm thinking it was probably a combo of teeth and some illness. She has never had that much trouble with temps while teething, except for the time she was getting molars and had roseola at the same time (fun!).
