A Perfect Storm: When the family gets sick at the same time

Both kids had a fever by Sunday morning. Eric was up in the night asking for drinks and complaining about his nightlight. I took in my spiffy new temporal thermometer and sure enough he had a fever of about 101. So I gave him some Ibuprofen and he went back to bed. In the morning Kaylee had a fever and by Sunday night it was up over 103.

I was really sick with a fever last Sunday, and I still don't feel good. So when Kaylee woke up and cried every 45 minutes or so I relapsed a bit. I went to bed at 9 last night, but it still wasn't enough. I'm still sick and exhausted.

I'm a little despondent at the moment. No matter how much sleep I get at night it never seems to be enough so that I'm not a zombie the next day. I think it's just this virus lingering. But damn, I feel bad.
