Sick.

On Saturday, The Little Emperor was spiking a fever of about 104 and we had to go to urgent care. The diagnosis was herpangina, an enteric virus more common in kids and in summertime. He made a very speedy recovery.

Last night, I started feeling a little unwell. This morning I was spiking a low fever and felt like I had a spike driving through my head. I haven't had a headache like that since one particularly awful hang-over in college about 1981. I've been lying in bed most of the day, dozing on and off. I think it might be West Nile, judging by the symptoms. I hope it goes away fast because I don't want to spend another day in that kind of misery.

I'm hoping to sleep now.

Woman, listen here. You get your ass to the doctor if you think you could have West Nile virus. People die from that. Perfectly respectable people die from that, not just people you've never heard of. Go.

Gosh, hope you were kidding about West Nile, but if not, hope you have been to the Doc. In either case, get well soon.

Aw, Elizabeth, and me outta town, when I could've made you some Genuine Jewish Bubbeh Chicken Soup (also known as "Yiddish Pencillin"). Makes you feel better, anyway. Just catching up on you now -- hope you're fine now, by the time I get up to *today*!
