End of the season clearance

Let's hear a collective sigh of relief to know that cold and flu season is finally coming to an end. Aahh!

Count on my little pipsqueak to round out the season with her final bout with the flu. As you may well remember, Eric is once again out of town for work and I'm running the show as a solo act. Nancy called me at work this afternoon to let me know that Elaina had gotten sick and was running a fever. Since it was already close to the end of my work day, Nancy assured me that she was doing fine and just get there when I could. When I arrived an hour later, Elaina had already been sick again and cuddled next to Nancy on the sofa in a crazy mismatched outfit since her spare one was left dirty.

I hurried Elaina home to cuddle her myself and get some Tylenol in her pronto. Over the remainder of the evening, Elaina dry heaved twice more as she had nothing left in her little belly. The poor child had eaten nothing for most of the day and resisted even drinking the all important fluids she needed. I've already called off work for tomorrow and hope that this is the tail end of her sickness for the season.

I hope Elaina feels better. Sofia's only been sick once, but that was scary enough!
