The Ca-cough-ony is slowly dying down...

Happy Valentine's Day!
What went wrong today: We got so much snow last night that most of Cary's clients cancelled their appointments. So he was home to go pick up Henry when the school nurse called to say he was in her office after "one of his gagging attacks." At least Lucy and I didn't have to trudge out in the semi-blizzard to collect him.

WWR illness recap:
Henry's coughing/gagging/vomiting continued over the course of the last week. He missed five days of school. Next week is school vacation week. It will be a very long week off. The only thing we have planned is a dual trip to the dentist for both kids. Yay!

Lucy had trouble napping Monday and was up most of the night Monday night, so I was too. She was asleep in our bed for awhile but then it became obvious that Cary wouldn't get enough rest before work, so around 4 am we got up and watched TV. Tuesday was a long day in all senses of the word.

I took her to the doctor and she has a double ear infection. She and Henry are now both on amoxicillin and seem to be improving. I am regaining my voice, which definitely makes parenting easier. I only have to scream "Put that down!" once instead of saying it hoarsely several times, never to be understood.
