The House Of Plague And Other News

Mia has been sick since Saturday evening. She woke up in the middle of SNL and told me, "Mommy, I don't feel good." She was drenched in sweat and had a fever of 104. I dosed her with children's Tylenol ™ and applied wet cool washcloths. Her fever came down but she was still not 100%. I should note, we have been very very lucky with Mia; she's been sick only a handful of times. She had chicken pox for about 24 hours, she's had a few bad colds and one ear infection, so for her to tell me she didn't feel well, I knew she was well and truly sick.

In the meantime, I haven't been feeling all that great, either, and although Mia no longer has any type of fever, she now sounds like a snot factory. Which is good, it's getting it out. Martin this morning also said he wasn't feeling well. I expect we will have a lovely week-end, since Martin's boss also has been out two days with the same plague and Boss is supposed to be on call, but I suspect Martin will take it.

In other news, I got my nose pierced. I quite like it, although it did hurt quite a bit, but only for a minute. I promise to post pictures soon.

I always wondered how people, with a pierced nose, handle a cold, what with all the blowing that goes on. Maybe you can give me some insight into that?

When Chandra got that done, I used to ask her if snot came out of it.

Hope everybody's getting better!
