Sick City

Anna has been walloped with fever for the past two days, making for a pretty lame spring break. My mom is still recovering from a nasty cold that won't vacate her sinuses, so she is happy with the low key activity level. Colin is fine, and just keeps building longer train tracks and bigger car garages out of legos and crazier bridges out of tinkertoys.

I slept with Anna last night so I could tend to her feverish needs. She was so sick I was a little too worried to leave her completely untended. Thank goodness we live in a time of vaccination against the worst diseases, and that good medical care is so readily available if we needed it.

Most worrisome, though, is the bronchitis that is making my poor Aunt Sudie (aged 93) so weak and dehydrated that she is now in the hospital. We are all hoping for a good recovery, even though her attendance at this weekend's family reunion is no longer an option.

Didn't know she (sudie) had been back in the hospital until Daddy was at our house last night. Not good! Germs be gone!

Oh no - and just when the weather turned nice, of course - I hope everyone feels better soon.

Thank you for that line about vaccination. I'm seeing to damn many blogs where moms are going on about how they are NOT vaccinating their kids.

Hope everyone is feeling better today!
