On the mend?

Went to see the doctor today, both Sprout and I. They could find nothing wrong with Sprout but want to see her again on Sunday to make sure that all is well.  This morning she woke up at 8:00 a.m. with 41.4°C /106°F (the numbers we've been struggling with for the past three days), but she was fine all day until 5:30 p.m., when she started complaining about being cold. We put her to bed with a slight fever of 38.4°C/101°F. I say slight because after those other temperatures 38-something-degrees feels quite manageable.

As for me, I'm coughing a bit and have a throat that is not exactly sore, more irritated.  I'm tired, tired, tired. From my own gunk, for sure, but mostly from caring for a sick kid around the clock.* Anyhow, I'm not as "lucky" as Sprout, for the doctor said I likely have a bacterial infection. I asked for a throat swab before being prescribed something. I'll get the results on Sunday. I hope to be feeling better by then.

Just so you know, I've kept up with my flist, but guys and gals, I just don't have the energy to respond.  My brain feels like mush.  This makes me especially sorry in regards to cafenowhere's excellent posts on Writing Latin@ Characters Well, the latest of which is here. I want to converse--I really do--but all I would be able to manage is muffledy mumbledy garble.

Soon, I hope to have more brain cells at my disposal...

*That is not to say that I've been doing it all alone--J is a great help, except when he is working since his shifts are 24 hrs long, as was the case yesty and last night--but when Sprout is sick, like many kids, I think, she just wants her momma.
