Nolan has managed to catch influenza: it is rather ironic since he's the only one in the house who actually got the flu vaccine this year. He has had a high fever and cough (and threw up once, but it was due to extreme coughing and not really an upset stomach). Unfortunately, I have also caught the flu: I forgot how miserable it is to have a high fever as an adult. He finally seems to be over the worst of it, though I am keeping his hearing aids out much of the time. I'm terrified that the congestion will create another ear infection with his earmolds in place. He should be back to wearing them full-time by tomorrow.
In other news, Casey is the Best. Dog. Ever. Not only is he brilliant, but he knows that Nolan is a little afraid of him. When Nolan is around, Casey tends to lay still and let Nolan pet him. Nolan spent much of yesterday morning petting Casey, giving Casey toys, and putting a blanket on Casey (because Casey might be cold, according to Nolan).
I am really, really looking forward to the arrival of Spring. Technically, the calendar has changed over to Spring, but we had 4" of snow last night. It is also supposed to be in the teens for the next few nights: a low of 10 degrees is not appreciated in late March (-12C, for our friends that live outside of the States).
Here's to the end of the "sick season" and the arrival of warmer days!
