Poor little spud – he’s been running a fever and coughing, and to add insult to injury when we took him in for his check-up yesterday he got three shots. Last night he didn’t sleep well at all, so today both of us are tired. He sounds so sad when he cries, since he’s hoarse. His sisters have been particularly solicitous of him, but he only wants me right now. I’ve spent most of yesterday and today holding him. Puts a serious crimp in my housecleaning, but he needs me more.
Tomorrow Sharon, Rachel, and Brian are coming up so they can go to Spacetacular. This is a fun event at the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium, Phil has twisted for them for three years now. She may take along the girls, but I think Johann and I will stay home. And Sharon and I were going to ride the gyroscope, too! Oh, well, probably betternot, anyway.
