Got up at 6:30 after a very restless night's sleep (Baboo being sick and me fearing swine flu).
Took Skittles to school at 7:30.
Stopped by the grocery store on the way home.
Called doctor's office across the street to schedule Baboo a look-see. Got an appointment for 12:30.
Now 9:15. Ran over to see The Spouse and bring him clean clothes. Stayed until about 11:00, then came back home.
Checked email, called the insurance company, tracked down some needed documents before running out the door (late) for Baboo's appointment.
Thems some UGLY tonsils, girl!
Met the Fabulous Dr. M who first treated The Spouse. He checked out Baboo, diagnosed strep, not swine flu, and sent us home with horse pill antibiotics. So glad I didn't just go to the pharmacy and mime that I wanted anti-viral meds!
Largely because I couldn't remember "Tamiflu." All I could think of was "Theraflu."
Baboo is 43kg/94.6 lbs and 154cm/60.6 in/5ft.
In an attempt to nurture myself a little, I am now roasting a gorgeous big, fat chicken with clementines and butter and garlic and parsley under the skin. And I made a big pot of potato soup.
I'm sure the kids will shun both.
While at the hospital this morning, The Spouse reported that he was told that there was NO WAY he'd be sprung on Wednesday. He needs to be in for at least a total of ten days.
Further, no gym after for quite some time (I don't know what this means) and no walking to work (with dropping off the kids and then walking to and from work, he walks 7 km/day). Again, I don't know what this is going to mean. Obviously, I'll be taking the kids to and from school now.
The last I heard the doctors seem to think sitting at a desk and flying in planes are the culprits. Not sure how to get around either of these things either.
I guess all will be revealed.
Comic relief follows. Alternative captions encouraged.

Now Basement Cat Crooky Is in the Box.
I still get to run back to school in time to collect Skittles at 5:30. Then I can relax.
UPDATE: The Spouse reports the tentative release day is back to Wednesday. That's day-after-tomorrow Wednesday!!!
