B-Rose is really sick. I have no idea why she gets sick like this. Last winter she was very sick a few times, but no one was ever able to determine a definite cause other than it must be a random virus (too bad it took blood draws, chest x-rays, catheterization, etc. to determine that at 10 weeks). Anyway, the rest of the kids are fine, Jonny and I have mild colds, and Beatrix has fever and coughing that causes her to vomit and the coughing is going round the clock. It’s really awful and so strange that she is suffering from the same thing as last winter. Are some kids just more prone to having this respiratory stuff get more serious? Anyway, I may not be back for a couple of days; B is very needy and between that and the fact that everything around here feels sort of disastrous I don’t have much time on my hands. Would you mind saying a prayer for my baby? I hate when she’s sick.
