We enjoyed about 10 days of good health, and now we’re back to two sick kids and mom and dad trying desperately to fight off the aches and scratchy throats. Corin’s on his third day of fever (it spiked to 103.5 night before last, which is not unusual for him) with a horrible, hacking cough, and Lina is coughing and eating barely enough to stave off dehydration. Church today? Nope. Corin’s neighbor friend’s birthday party? Missing that, too. Super Bowl party with friends tomorrow? Not so much.
I would like to propose that since we got some decent snow today, we officially call an end to winter and usher in spring a month early. Anyone with me? Anyone? (Turns out Punxsutawney Phil agrees with me.)
But it hasn’t all been misery and plague around here. The kids are growing, Lina had a great 4 month visit with her pediatrician, who was very pleased with her progress, and we have had time to play and enjoy each other.
Here’s to recovered health sometime this season.
