Sick Child

One of the best things about my kids is that they all share everything. Unfortunately, like most kids, they share their sicknesses with each other as well. This means that the flu/cold thing that my oldest son got passed to my youngest son, and now has moved on to my daughter. It's just really painful to see a little ball of energy reduced to a fetal blob laying on the bed, just asking for water and Aladdin.
Poor little thing

Oh, poor baby. I do hate it when they're sick. At least most of the bad infectious diseases have been knocked out. When I was a child, what my brothers brought hom from school and passed on to me were the measles, mumps, chicken pox, etc.

I remember Chicken Pox. I was 9, and my grandfather flew out that week to visit (just coincidence).
Fortunately, this is "just" a little virus, and she'll be fine in a day or so. And at least they've all gotten these out of the way at the same time.

Egads! Three sick kids and going to law school? Of course, having had kids and having gone to law school, there is no doubt in my mind that the kids are the harder task! Law school is probably a piece of cake from your perspective.

sounds a lot like me right now. except i'm asking for drugs and chicken soup.

Juggling kids and law school is a challenge that I can't begin to describe, though I wouldn't undo it, even if I could. They're a lot of fun to see grow up.

I thought particles were immune from disease?
I hope you get to feeling better!
