Turns out that Atticus has two ear infections, that’s one per ear. Tricia has a cough and a headache. I’ve got Atticus-lite symptoms and wondering if I too have something banging on the ol’ eardrums. Zane has such a bad cough that he screams and wheezes and his little body sounds like a pathetic rattle. This is the most disturbing, as Atticus is on antibiotics, Tricia will just tough it out, and I’ll drown mine in wine and whines. Zane, however, cannot take medicine due to his being a month old and therefore must suffer. To his credit he is a trooper and saves any real opinions on his discomfort for middle of the night tirades, possibly to ensure we empathize at the appropriate level.
I expect the quarantine tent any moment now.
