Two Ear Infections, One Stomach Flu, and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

It’s official: daycare is a germ trap – no one escapes unscathed. Poor Shef (who knows how to milk an ailment, let me tell you) is on his fourth significant illness of the season. This time it’s a nasty sounding cough with an accompanying ear infection speedily diagnosed by Dr. H. this morning.

Luckily and unluckily for us, he mostly gets sick on the weekends. As a bonus, this time we had fair warning. Teacher Tina told Dan that they thought Shef had thrown up on his cot during naptime until they realized the substance in question was just an unusual magnitude of nasty, crusty, decidedly non-clear mucus.

Poor Shef! But just think of how excellent his immune system will be by the time he gets to grade school! He'll never need a sick day. (that IS how it works - isn't it?)

Hope he doesn't end up like Frey. Ear infections really messed that guy up.
