It wasn’t a long night, but Vivian is definitely down with something. She’s held down food and water since 9:00 p.m. last night, but has been quite lethargic today without much of an appetite, which is not like her at all. As you can imagine, we’re worried, though I realize there is little we can do but give her children’s Tylenol for the fever and make sure she’s drinking fluids and eating what she can.
Keep your fingers crossed that she’ll be through this tomorrow.
The other part of this is that we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Two weeks ago, when Vivian was sick on Thursday, I got sick on Saturday, and Erin finally got sick the next Thursday. Our immune systems have been shown to be not nearly as strong as we’d hoped them to be. The fact that either this or a similar plague is working its way through Erin’s office makes this a virtual certainty.
Our best hope is that Erin and I take turns at this, so that someone is able to take care of the other and Vivian. Because you know Vivian is going to bounce back a lot faster than we are. And if we get sick in unison, she’ll be dancing over our prostrate bodies.
In other news, I did some work on my Baseball Science reference book, but I also worked on setting up and upgrading the old People’s Republic of Seabrook website to What Would Jack Do. This Texas native has relocated to Oregon, but still offers up a lot of good, from-the-heart content that is well worth your attention. He’s one of the older blogs out there, and I’m glad I’ve been able to help him with his templates.
I hope to have something more productive and interesting to say tomorrow (like getting back into my dormant “Classic Who Must See List”), so stay tuned.
