IN THE COMPANY OF SLUGS

Martin called his father from fritids (after-school daycare) on Thursday to announce he was running a fever. Anders picked him and took him home, where he slept from 1 p.m. until 5 that evening. He had a fever on and off the next day, home from school, and slept a great deal of that day away as well. By Friday night Karin had picked it up, and even Anders was dragging and not feeling himself.

They got up at a decent hour this morning, though Martin was restless and awake until well past midnight and had breakfast at 8. I got up to check on them and both said they felt okay, but they both still had high temperatures and felt hot to the touch. Anders went to hockey practice and I went back to bed...and slept until noon. After I dragged my carcass from under the covers, I fixed lunch for the kids and shortly thereafter Martin went to lie down. Anders came home and now he and Karin are zonked out in the living room.

Anders has a dinner out tonight with friends, so I hope he feels okay enough after this nap to participate. I need to wake the kids up soon, otherwise they'll both be up all night. At least I am not, yet, running a fever. This does not bode well.

Viel Glück zum Geburtstag to Simone!
