Daughter slept all afternoon, and came down around 5:00 and announced she was hungry. Since she hadn't eaten since about 8:30 this morning, I'm not surprised. As we were eating supper, she announced that she was afraid she was going to die. She doesn't watch the news, but she'd seen and heard enough to know that H1N1 is dangerous and people are dying. Far Away Sister tells me that Nephew has repeatedly expressed the concern that he is going to die. He's been sick since Friday. His temperature is beginning to come down, but it was still over 102 this afternoon.
While it's important to educate the public about the danger of this flu, I think it's a shame that the coverage has resulted in Nephew and Daughter being terrified that they're going to die. It's hard enough being sick without that worry hanging over their heads.
Today was my day off, and C still came this morning (I warned her Daughter was sick) and we tackled the guest room, which had become a junk room. We've made great progress, but there is still much more to do. Tomorrow Secretary will be in the office. I can't leave Daughter alone for any length of time and I don't want to take her to the church, so I'll be running back and forth and emailing a lot of documents to the church. It's going to be a long week....
