Flu Season

I have 75% of my children home due to the Flu.

I am not entirely convinced that Ike or Izzy have the flu, but they were pathetic enough to convince me to keep them home.

Ike in particular has this cough that rivals an emphysemic squirrel.  But he has the energy of a 5 year old hopped up on mountain dew and chocolate (neither of which he has eaten recently).  So, I am puzzled as to how to proceed. If I send him to school, I'm sure the nurse will be harrasing me like a telemarketer.  But he is driving me nuts here at home.

Moops though, he is really sick.  He finally broke his fever, but he still gets dizzy and has a nasty cough.  And he puked, it was only once and really not bad at all.  But he still puked.

Izzy was standing in the doorway as I cleaned it up.  I told her "one day I will be old and I'll poop myself and puke, and I want you to take care of me". Izzy looks me dead on and replies with "That is what nursing homes are for....."

I'm totally feeling the love there.
