Just One Damned Thing After Another

We had to cut our sojourn in Rangeley short by a couple of days when our (wonderful, fabulous) babysitter came down with swine flu. Today Taz was extremely lethargic, showing no inclination to eat, talk, or move, so Grant took him to the doctor this afternoon and discovered that he has the flu too. He has none of the standard flu symptoms and seems to be dehydrated despite having had what I would normally think would be adequate fluids, so he's in the hospital (not Children's, fortunately, our local community hospital) overnight for observation, and I'm here with him.

Let's hear it for hospital wifi.
