One Cobble at a Time

Sick Day

Sandra Tayler's Journal

responsible woman

A cobble by itself is just a small stone, but when many of them lay together they create a path . My life is made up of many discrete parts. I have to find ways to fit them all into place so that I can continue to journey where I desire to go. This journal records some of the cobbles that create my path.

Sick Day

I will assuage my guilt at postponing my son’s birthday party by chanting “Infectious diseases do not make good party prizes.”

Current sick count:
1 case of pneumonia (Howard)
2 flu cases with chills, fever, and body aches (Kiki and Me)
1 sore throat (Gleek)
1 unsettled stomach (Link)

That’s 5 out of 6 people. Hopefully quarantine will prevent us from being Typoid Taylers. Also hopefully everyone will play nicely all day. I’m in the head cold with body aches category.

Edited to Add: Over night the sore throat manifested as stomach flu with attendant middle-of-the-night clean up. The unsettled stomach is now feeling fine.

  • Wow. Fun. I hope it all leaves your house very soon!
  • I hope the person who was left out of that list continues to be well. Hope you all get better soon.
    • The only one not sick is Patch, whose birthday party we had to cancel. His life is filled with unfairness today.
  • As of this writing, Sandra is now in the high fever category with me. Mine has mostly abated. Hers does not have the deep lung congestion mine does, but it's got her flat on her back nonetheless.

    Patch (the birthday boy) remains healthy.
  • Wow, pneumonia? That's painful. I keep thinking that somehow I avoided the con crud that everyone else seems to be coming down with when I see these reports. But then I sneeze, and have to wonder: allergies or a cold?
