So last Friday evening Mischa called at about 9 pm, pretty freaked out -- Gibson was burning up with fever, and she couldn't find her thermometer. By the time I drove over with mine (but mainly prepared to take Gibson to the hospital if necessary, because Mischa doesn't drive), she'd given him some baby Tylenol, and was wiping him down with a cool, damp cloth.

He had a fever of 103.7 -- so I said if it didn't start to come down in 15 minutes, we'd get him to emergency. Poor little guy... we decided to put him in a luke-warm bath with Mischa, which lasted about 30 seconds, he wasn't having any of that! But it was enough that the fever started to break.

So I stayed for an hour or so to give Misch a break, and got home about 10:30.

Woke up on Saturday morning with my own fever of 103, and I've pretty much been in bed since. NOT FUN!! By Sunday Michael had the bug, too...

Yesterday I thought I was okay to go to work, but they knew I wasn't feeling well -- when Stephanie called from home to offer to come in and take over for me at 3:00, I jumped at the chance. Home in bed again by about 4:30, where I've been off and on since. Aarrgggghhhh --- I don't even have energy to knit. I think I've accomplished half a pair of socks in the last 4 days and that's all.

Going back to bed .... sure hope to be back blogging regularly soon!
