Sickness Comes On Horseback But Departs On Foot - Dutch Proverb

Still sick. The baby, or as we're now calling her, Typhoid Mary, is cranked up on "my parents don't even want to move, let alone play" so she's bouncing around like I gave her speed. Her only lingering symptom is a constantly running nose. Neil and I aren't faring so well. Mercifully, Neil's parents came over yesterday afternoon to distract the Bean for a while so we could get some much needed rest. They are, without a doubt, some of the nicest people around. I am lucky to have them in my life.

One of my more unfortunate symptoms, in addition to the aches, chills, weakness, sore (huge understatement) throat and stuffy nose is hypersensitivity. Sounds, lights and temperatures are particularly painful. Since I'm drinking tons of water to stay hydrated, I have been visiting the commode quite frequently. Every time I plant my sensitive cheeks on that seat, it is like sitting on a thousand needles. Because of this, I have decided that it is time to invest in a heated toilet seat for all three of our bathrooms.

What? I don't think I'm overreacting at all.

PS - Sorry I haven't been around to visit all of you in the last couple of days. Unbelievably, I just don't have the strength or concentration for much computer schtuff. Hopefully I'll be back up and running soon. I miss you!
