Send in the reinforcements

I finished binding the quilt last night (this morning) at 12:30. Yah!

Blonde rascal woke me up at 3:00 am.

Blonde rascal woke me up again at 4:30 am.

Blonde rascal woke me up for good at 6:45 am.

Bless his heart. He was on the couch all day yesterday and did not make a peep. Far, very far from normal for him.

OTC meds. were not even scratching the surface of his symptoms and he had a low grade fever.

We were at the dr.'s office at 8:00 this morning.

102 fever and strep throat.

The dr. said since it had been a week since I had it, he didn't get it from me. But instead picked it up most likely at school Friday.

Hubs is considering staying at a hotel tonight. Chicken!

The little guy is breaking my heart...he looks so pathetic. Eyes glazed over, red nose and completely lethargic. He is curled up in our bed, fast asleep now. Full of antibiotics and Tylenol.

The bleach it out again, the washing machine is getting a workout and even though it is 40 degrees outside I have a window cracked a hair. Germs be gone!!!! I have a spiced pumpkin candle burning. Nothing about the smell of bleach says Merry Christmas.

Between all that and constant hand washing... please send hand cream. Very heavy duty thick hand cream!

And you might want to wash your hands after reading this. We seem to be highly contagious around here.

Well....at least you're getting this over before Christmas Day. It'd be awful if he felt bad on Christmas. Hope Hubs stays well! He's had his share of nursing, with the rotator cuff surgery, hmm?
