We've been sick here. Continuously sick. Starting around mid-October, The Cough visited our home with a vengeance, wrecking its havoc on me and Jacob. It subsided, only to be replaced by The Allergies. The Allergies had the decency to spread its love around, touching Nick also. Almost two weeks ago, Jacob came home from preschool with A Fever. A Really Strange Fever that would only stop by between noon and 2 pm everyday, reaching heights of 103 degrees, only to steal away until the morrow. Finally, finally, we rid ourselves of our unpleasant house guests (well, except for The Allergies - that one cannot take a hint).
Yesterday, Food Poisoning decided to visit Nick, Jacob and myself. We are recovering, albeit slowly, from his visit, thanks to an amazing neighbor/friend-for-life Hilary. Hilary, thank you for going shopping at 8 am this morning (a true sacrifice!) for supplies and also for taking Sam this afternoon. We are deeply indebted.
And for the record, our home is now closed to any other visitors of the Sick Variety.
