Kirk and I were able to get Walker to open his mouth for us last night – well mostly. No wonder he has been so utterly miserable the past 4-5 days. Between the sheeting drool, mid-grade fevers and him howling and probably the worst was him waking up 1-3 times a night – well we had wondered. Turned out I could see at least 6 teeth cutting at once and most likely there are another 2 on the bottom as well. He had it and clamped his mouth shut after that. Last night though after some pain medication, Oral Jel and lots of hugs he slept through the night. His fever was there but better this morning.
I needed to get out of the house badly (it dumped rain ALL weekend!) and this morning it was sunny although cold. We drove up to Mt. Rainier and went up to Chinook Pass on Hwy 410 to look at the depressing snow levels. Global warming left town this summer here 😉
Looking at Mt. Rainier with Tipsoo Lake in the front (although the lake is still nearly all frozen). Most of the mountain was covered by a cloud, you can see a pyramid pointing up, that is Little Tahoma, part of the mountain.
Walker and Ford:
I thought about doing more but I didn’t want to press Walker – he slept for half the drive which was good. Still a lot of snow – it will be awhile before we can hike up there this year unless we get a heat wave soon. There is still 5-10 feet of snow!
