Oh, thank goodness. You think it's finally leaving? This was the virus that wouldn't quit. It's the little pink bunny of viruses.

I spoke too soon. Sass had a fever of 102 when she went to bed tonight. It ain't over till the fat lady sings, and I guess I'm not singing tonight :).

Oh dear. I do know how it is. We've had a virus for weeks now and just keep passing it from one family member to another - & back again!!!!!!!! Hope Sass is feeling better this morning. How are you doing with the weightloss? When I am ill or worried about the Kids being ill I tend to Binge. Take care. xx
