Welcome to the Infirmary

It's a sad commentary on life when the woman who is 27 weeks and 2 days pregnant with triplets and growing at an astronomical rate is the person in the house who feels the best.

Amelia has an infected bump on her bottom and started running a fever last night, so in between refusing to take her medicine (Even for M&M's!) and us getting it in her, she's bouncing back and forth between listless and wired.

Jeff is suffering the effects of not enough sleep due to Amelia's illness, which started Saturday, and too much sun and heat during yesterday's round of golf. Thankfully all he needs is some sleep and lots of fluids. And he doesn't refuse to take his medicine.

So we're taking a family sick day.

I'm hoping to get in three hours of work this afternoon during nap time, and I've been able to do a few things this morning while Amelia watched a video and read her books. So the day isn't a total loss.

Still, I guess the healthy people in our house outnumber the sick people 4 to 2!

Hey Jeff & Christy,
For your name game: Don't take the names Clare and Isabel from us!
