Sickness Comes On Horseback

… and departs on foot. An old Dutch proverb. And a truth we’re living in our family right now.

The sickness began more than a week ago. The youngest feeling tired and wanting to go to bed early. A fever the next morning. Continues fever for a week. Flu. My wife with a very bad case of sinus infection.

Then the fevers, ear infections, missed church and school continued. And to one degree or another its all still here in the household.

It’s been a very bad week and a half around here. And I have personally evaded all the bugs. I hope I make it through unscathed.
