Sharing

The little stinker, and by stinker I mean Sofia, has shared yet another sickness with me. She came home yesterday with a fever of 102. She and I stayed home today, and I thought she was getting better. Then I gave her a bath and she freaked and was not herself (she loves bath time). So I called the doctor and they were able to squeeze us in after hours. Turns out Sofia has coxsackievirus. The doctor said that, aside from one other boy, this is the worst case he's seen! It all boils down to a really bad sore throat/mouth. I asked if I should go see my doctor since I too have a sore throat, so he looked in my mouth and said I too have it, only a mild case, and no need to go see my doctor since it's a virus and we just have to let it run it's course. Oh yeah, and that course is going to be about 4-5 days until we are no longer contagious and we might have a sore throat for up to 10 days! Great way to start my second week at a new job....by not showing up. So far, everyone has been understanding. I think it's really that they don't want to get what we have!

Sofia and I will be going to the store in the morning to get "smooth" (doc's words not mine) things to eat that will feel good going down...maybe a a redbox movie and we'll be hanging out at the house the rest of the week.

Hope you guys feel better soon! My girls bring illnesses home all the time (and Kevin too since he's a teacher). Usually I'm the only one that gets sick!

Goodness! Poor Sofia always seems to have something. Mac's the same way, I'm discovering.

At least he doesn't share too much!

Sounds like a good excuse to watch movies and eat ice cream to me!

Hope you're better now!
