Teething Troubles

Mercedes is teething again
Not too long ago, her first tooth came through, now she has three coming through at once or at least that is what it looks like.
All day she has had a temperature which only has come down when she was in the bath or shower. She is generally miserable despite her happy demeanour. Her nose is running, she has watery eyes, her left ear was red and warm most of today, now it is her right. She won't let me touch her gums and won't put anything hard into her mouth (though she has enjoyed a few cherry tomatoes). I can't wait till it is over.
Last time she was teething we had a night when I couldn't get more then two hours sleep at a time. So far we haven't been that lucky. She is still up as she doesn't want to be put down. I have just given her some more medecine so hopefully that will kick in and give us all some rest.
