>Last night

>Anyway, I didn’t tell you that this morning when I came upstairs Em told that Fred had been throwing up. I didn’t quite grasp it then but evidently it was all night he was throwing up. Anyway, Tigger is now in competition for Best Big Brother award because he got up with Fred every time, and D got up ‘once’. Em says, “That’s what fathers are for.” Someone else I know would say something about the flat spot on his cranium just fitting a frying pan!

Tonight he seems to be feeling better. I am sure he will be staying home tomorrow. As I will be since I have a doctor’s appointment. Want to get something for these migraines I have been having.

>Again. I am getting tired of this. I am all stuffed up and getting a headache. I really wanted to go to the meeting today. I don’t think I will make it. I really just want to curl up in bed and sleep, but I also don’t want to. Does that make sense?
