Cold Scores

Number of colds/flu suffered since the beginning of June : Baby 3, the boy 2, me 2.
Number of healthy days in June: Baby 24, the boy 10, me 8.
Perkiest family member: Baby (of course!)

Number of social get-togethers missed this month due to sickness: 1.
Number of social get-togethers we have been invited to in the last three months: 1.

It turns out that we've all had influenza, probably the very strain which this year's flu vaccination protects against (and which none of us took). The doctor says that young children get sick frequently but don't suffer to the same degree. This explains why Baby has just a couple of unsettled nights each time, but the boy and I both feel like death warmed up, then quick-frozen, then put into a very hot oven without any basting.

Get well soon.
But at least since you and the boy are sick together you're simpatico and the sick one can't resent the well one.

I'd forgotten for a moment that it's winter down there for you. Hope you all feel better soon.
