Went out Very Early to visit my mom in the ICU before the morning rounds and shift change. Held her hand for about 40 minutes, talked to her and the nurse. She was awake and reasonably alert for a while, then some meds kicked in and not so much. I will be back over there sometime this afternoon. They are supposed to transfer her out of ICU today.

Came back to Witchnest Manor to (eventually) find calendula_witch feeling rather a bit ill. Thankfully, she is experiencing the stay-in-bed-and-sleep-uneasily kind of ill, not the go-to-the-ER kind of ill. Still, 'tis a wet and gloomy day here in Greater Portlandia, the real advent of our autumnal weather, and my poor sweetie seems to be matching the aspect of the season.

Hopefully, it's the same thing I experienced earlier in the week, where I woke up feeling like I'd been slugging back margaritas at the Jimmy Buffett concert (but hadn't had any at all), complete with the woozy sick.

Of course I went to work. I'm running interventions right now and can't hand them over to someone else. But when one kid canceled on me, I canceled on the day and came home before I got so sick I couldn't drive. Issues you deal with when you have an 80 mile commute.

The good news is that sleeping all day and light eating made things much, much better. It's a hard, fast and nasty bug, fortunately it's not a lingering bug. Though I think I'd been brewing it from Friday through Wednesday, when it struck.

Oh he is being SO GOOD. He has provided medicines and soup and tea and toast and all manner of good healing activities. :-)

And I'm not even the one in the hospital. Just, er, maldigesting.
