My stepdaughter is at home sick today.
She felt fine last night, but woke up this morning with a headache, nausea, low fever and general malaise. For her to not want to go to school, something is definitely amiss! A couple of trips into the bathroom to bring up whatever went down last night convinced her that horizontal in bed was probably the better choice.
A couple of hours later, she was up, though ever so tentatively. Had a few mouthfuls of water and feeling a little better. That lasted about 15 minutes.
(I’m amazed at how quickly I can grab a bowl when necessary!)
She is once again resting, starting to feel well again.
No doubt, this too will pass in its time. As all does.
