Katherine’s fever finally broke Sunday morning. It took three days, and we had a couple scares of 103+, but she’s feeling better. I think the sign that she was truly feeling well again was when we realized that her talking had increased from about 1 word a minute up to 150 with gusts approaching 300.
She’s still the only one that got sick, though several coworkers have called in this morning saying they were ill. I think I may have been a carrier…. Does it make me a bad person if I find that slightly humorous? 🙂
The worst part of the whole experience was that Katherine didn’t get to do anything for Halloween. She was most depressed by that. She’s been counting down for a long time, and the saddest part for me was coming home from work on Friday and finding her in her Halloween costume slumped on the couch. I think it had just set in that she was not going to go trick-or-treating, and she was truly heart broken. It made me want to reach up and pull down the moon for her….
I think we’re going to get together with Nosurfgirl’s family this weekend and do a mini-Halloween just for Katherine. Nosurfgirl has four daughters all around Katherine’s age, and I could just see the huge princess party that’s going to be with all of them dressed up and marching around the house trick-or-treating. We still haven’t carved our two pumpkins either, so we’ll hold those aside for this weekend as well. Should be fun, and Katherine will be thrilled to go trick-or-treating even if it isn’t really Halloween.
