Apparently if we get sick, no new stories get posted to Trixie Update. It’s one of the downsides to not having an intern. We’ve both been sick this past week. I’ve been fighting a losing battle against a cold and Jennifer got hit with a double whammy of a cold plus mastitis (or maybe mastitis plus cold – we’re not sure which came first).
Taking care of Trixie is much more complicated when you’re trying not to sneeze, cough or breathe on her. You also have to work to keep her hands out of your mouth, nose and eyes. We’re not even totally sure that these measures have paid off — Trixie has had a dry cough all week, although no other symptoms. But even if she does get sick, I think we can still count ourselves lucky since Trixie’s been in perfect health up to this point.
