Whatever “normal” is.
Brendan is getting better. He’s breathing well, keeping food down, looking better, seeming happier, and his other symptoms are less severe. He’s back in day care, so we don’t have to beg for help from family and friends so that we can get to work (thanks to Joyce, Carol, Cheyenne, and Nancy). Last night Brendan woke up only once, instead of staying up most every night with unpleasant symptoms I won’t describe here.
The cold that I got (probably brought on mainly by exhaustion) is also better. (Teaching a class at work with a throbbing head cold was lots of fun.) My wife Kirsten has a bad case of the sniffles, but she’s been getting more sleep, so that should go away soon.
With any luck, I should get back to posting here normally very soon.
I’d like to thank everyone who posted a comment or wrote an email to provide support. Your kind words are much appreciated.
