    Thanks and sorry guys. Had to care for my baby girl the last days. She's teething and has an otitis media. We had to take her to the doctor to get some antibiotics. And now it's getting better again.

    Well, last night was terrible again. We're not sure what's gooing on. Whether the antibiotics are too weak or simply some teeth are coming through. Might be that I need to visit the doctor once again. [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-6.gif' alt=':(' />]<br /><br />Anyway, Luis, we haven't had any statistics from you recently. What's new on that front?<br />Based on my own estimations it looks like I won't catch up with you this year as I predicted some time ago.

    I was indeed at the doctor today. Now she's got some other antibiotics and we can see she's recovering. Finally!

  20. FrankKalis Moderator

    So you know that two weeks can be a *very* long time. Once my sons got through this teething phase, they didn't have any problems with that anymore. Knock on wood!!!<br />Nina is now almost 10 months old and yesterday we sat with three other children with otitis media in the doctor's waiting room.

  21. mmarovic Active Member

    Yes, two weeks are long. [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-6.gif' alt=':(' />]<br />However, I was talking about being sick, taking antibiotics and long recovery. Teething was not our problem.<br /><br />*<br /><br />Nina is nice name, originally I prefered a girl and I considered names Nina and Una.
  22. Madhivanan Moderator

    Is there any special meaning for Nina? Because it sounds Indian Name [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br />Madhivanan<br /><br />Failing to plan is Planning to fail
  23. Adriaan New Member

    I don't suppose she was named after Nina Hagen, huh?
  24. FrankKalis Moderator

    Haha, no! Definitely not Nina Hagen. [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br />Honestly, I don't know the origins of Nina, but it sounds good. And it's much harder to find a name for a girl than for a boy anyway.<br /><br />--<br />Frank Kalis<br />Microsoft SQL Server MVP<br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.insidesql.de>http://www.insidesql.de</a><br />Heute schon gebloggt?<a target="_blank" href=http://www.insidesql.de/blogs>http://www.insidesql.de/blogs</a><br />Ich unterstütze PASS Deutschland e.V. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.sqlpass.de>http://www.sqlpass.de</a>) <br />

    If I remember correctly niña is Spanish for girl, niño for boy.
