Domestic Hospital

Sigh.
It`s that time of year still, when small children `s immune systems are exposed to myriads of viruses, and get pole-axed by 90% of them !
Our domestic hospital now only has D3; on Weds it was myself and D4 as well.

D1 (the infamous DoomHamster) has been under the weather for a couple of weeks , and is "under investigation" by the GP, especially as D2 is still suffering from the after-effects of glandular fever (mononucleosis) which she had last July....

D3 has been running a raging temperature and had a streaming cold and cough. The noises my poor little girl makes whilst asleep have to be heard to be believed, and would certainly be worthy of a BBC sound crew making a special trip to record for posterity......or a horror film. :-)

DH is upstairs watching Eddie Murphy in "The Haunted Mansion", whilst the two young `uns are watching "Finding Nemo".

Each time I watch Nemo, with Marlin desperately struggling to find and rescue his son, I think of Christ as the Good Shepherd, willing to go even through Death to rescue us, His sinful children.
May we be worthy of the rescue.....

Here across the pond many are sick with cough and cold which sounds much the same as your family. My dearest hubby has been sick for a month with symptoms similiar to those you describe. Spring can't come fast enough this year!
