Ugh. I hate it when my kids are sick. Viola has been really sick today and if I could take it on for her, I would. Right now she has finally passed out on the couch after hacking away for the whole afternoon. I gave her cough syrup earlier hoping it would take the edge off. I try to save the codeine for the night when she *really* needs it. I couldn't stand it anymore though when I caught her alternately coughing and gagging. Anyhow, the codeine is doing its thing.
Avery, on the other hand, seems to be recuperating. Still, she was on enforced rest today, as well.
These days cooped up in the house are LOOONNNNNGGGG. I got so ooky feeling that aqt about 3 today I threw open all the doors and windows and let the place air out. Thank goodness the weather was good today and there was a touch of a warm breeze blowing. As grandma used to say, "had to get the stink off us".
