Whereas last night I felt merely inconvenienced, I feel much worse today. It's a bit like when you have a fall or something and feel fine immediately afterward, but the next day you realize how sore you are. I didn't sleep at all well-- I kept worrying about Q in her room, that someone would try to come in and take her or something. Not rational, I know, but nevertheless. I guess when a little hole has been poked in your sense of security, stuff starts wandering in. It didn't help that she woke at one point relatively early in the night, not with her usual crying but by launching almost immediately into a full-volume panicked shriek. I got her back to sleep and spent the rest of the night sleeping lightly and listening for her on the monitor, or worrying I'd slept through something.
