"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

House of Plague Take 2

Arrrrggggghhhh, it never ends! We almost made it. We were almost all healthy. And, then it struck. Gabe puked once yesterday and had a temp of about 101 F. With medicine in him, he was feeling fine and bouncing off the walls today. However, once he started getting tired and the meds started wearing off, the temp went right back up. And, Joey came back from his friend's house this evening with a screaming headache...a migraine actually. I gave him motrin and tylenol and hoped we could clear the pain and maybe make it to TKD Sparring class. That was not to be. His migraine seemed to ease a bit and he sat down to eat a hot dog. He ate about 2/3 of one and it promptly came back up all over my living room floor.  Joey doesn't have a fever so I'm hopeful it is all tied to the migraine but, considering our House of Plague status, I don't have much faith in that.

I guess it was fate that I made the most kick ass pot of chicken noodle soup ever yesterday. In fact, I think it is the best chicken noodle soup I have ever made. Hopefully, it's curative properties will work miracles and we will all really be healthy soon.

Ugh... I'm so sorry that you guys can't seem to shake the plague. I thought it was making an appearance here (I had a horrible sinus headache yesterday) but I think it was just faking me out.
