Trilingual Hallucinating

Yesterday Lilia developped a really high fever, the kind of fever that makes you browse the web and ponder going to a hospital. She was burning hot and probably hallucinating. She tried to grab things that weren't there or said things that were out of context. She also threw up on the bedroom floor.

Today she still has a high fever, but she's better. Relief!

The interesting part from the point of view of this blog is that she was hallucinating in German when I was sitting next to her and in Arabic/French when Souad was with her!

Even more astounding: when we were both sitting next to her (me cooling her ankles, Souad cooling her forehead), she was still using the correct language to reply to questions!

What an incredible child!
