Yes, we are all sick. Curtis came home Saturday night with it, then I followed on Monday night and Miss Allison came down with it on Tuesday afternoon. After being up all night long with Allison, she woke up this morning tugging at her ears. She said they hurt and I am sure they did because mine were killing me too. I rushed her to the doctor's at 7:15 am. They have walk-in hours for the sick 4 days a week and I've never used the service before but boy was it nice to just go. It is, just as I thought, a really bad cold but I didn't want to take any chances with her ears since she starts Kindergarten on Monday. By the way, did I mention how much I hate colds? I can't stand the stuffiness and not being able to breathe out of my nose! Don't get me wrong, I know it could be much worse but I am miserable and haven't has much sleep since Sunday night. Curtis offered for me to go take a nap when he got home but I can't leave her. I know when I was sick as a child, all I wanted was my Mom and she is the same way. I'll just keep drinking my orange juice and keep tending to her. Maybe she will sleep tonight...one can only pray!
