Matt started getting a sore throat on Sunday, and was fairly miserable Sunday night. He felt somewhat better yesterday, and went to bed early with the hope of feeling even better today. When I went to bed last night, he was burning up with fever. This morning, his skin was cool, but he told me he felt much worse. He planned to stay home and call his doctor to find out if he'd picked up strep throat from Adin, or just acquired some variety of Con Crud.

I woke up this morning with a sore throat. So I guess whatever Matt's doctor tells him, I'm in for a rough few days. The only bright spot is knowing that my doctor has, in the past, called in antibiotics for me sight-unseen on the report that I have a diagnosed case of strep already in the house, so if that's what it turns out to be, maybe I can skip that step.

On the plus side, all of this week's deliverables are due out today, which means that once I get through today, I'm pretty much in the clear to get sick and either take time off or work from home.

Also on the plus side: the kids have so far avoided whatever it is. I hope they continue to do so. At least until Matt or I are feeling better; taking care of sick kids is especially miserable when you're sick yourself.

Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net) may be another choice. i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore throat.
