Still sick!

Boy, some week this has been!!!
Even before I could recover from last week's fever, Om fell sick Friday. I was shivering under two blankets in Florida and going out to get the kids in the afternoon in my parka when it was above 80 outside. Then, I had classes to teach on Saturday. Only I know how I managed those.
Sunday, we had to take Om to urgent care. He kept throwing up. After that it has been a blur. He's been home sick all week. And then last night, Brave started throwing up too...
I have done countless loads of laundry. The morning routine has changed. We start the day with morning medicines, then I take Nini to the bus stop, come back and call the school to report Om's absence. Home is quiet even when Om and Brave are together. I could use some sleep, but I keep waking up. Work has accumulated because I haven't had the time or energy. Food has no taste, sleep isn't restful.
Life here is out of order right now...
