Trixie is sick. First time since the massive exposure when we started school. She’s been home with me all day and sporting a 101-103.5 fever. It’s the .5 that gets me. 103, I can deal with. 103.5, it’s time to dump her in the bath. Putting a sick toddler in a luke-cool bath is about as much fun as putting a cat in any bath. Luckily we had Trixie’s front claws clipped recently.
The good news is that Jenn just gave the word that the fever seems to have finally broken. Her head is sweaty, but her body is no longer radiating heat like an open stove. It’s a big relief. She’s been pretty miserable today. All she’s eaten is 3 popsicles and box of 3-week old Chinese food. It breaks your heart.
In other news, who wants to guess what Hannah* has been up to? Haven’t heard from her in a while, right? Well… sometimes it’s hard to get online and surf when you’re busy taking care of twins. Yep — I’m happy to congratulate Hannah and company on the recent healthy births of Carina and Henry. They have no idea what a cool mom they are getting — it’s just too bad hannah’s next comment on this site will probably be around 2008. Good luck guys, we’re thinking of you!
