Today is day number six of Stephen being ill. He manages to get up and showered and then immediately needs to rest for a few hours before lunch. Following lunch he rests for another few hours before he starts feeling really bad. He’s had fever, chills, aches, joint pain, lack of appetite, a hacking cough, congested sinuses, and random bouts of panic.
And the funniest part is when he went to the doctor to get tested for the flu, he tested negative.
Liza started running a temperature of 102° late yesterday afternoon.
You can see where this is going, can’t you?
I took her to the doctor today and she has a double ear infection. Her right ear? The drum is bulging with fluid, it’s so full. The left one? It just looks the regular kind of bad.
The doctor wasn’t going to do the flu test because she can’t have anything for the flu. I asked if he would anyway so that if we do have flu at Casa Granade, Eli can get a prophylactic dose of TamiFlu.
Shocker! Her test came back positive for the flu. Eli has had his first dose and I’m picking up my prescription tomorrow.
The very best news though is Stephen says he’s feeling better! We’ll see how the fever is tonight and tomorrow.
Me? I’m taking a large dose of U2 to help me cope. I got Vertigo, Live from Chicago for Christmas and this is only the second time I’ve watched it. I’m hoping that this weekend, if everyone is feeling better, I’ll get to sneak off to the movies and see U23D.
