Can't Catch a Break

Friday evening Ian came down with a fever and chills which lasted all night, all Saturday and into Saturday night. This Sunday morning he is better. Last night Katherine came down with the fever and is miserable today with fever and chills. Nicholas currently has a headache... My first thought was malaria, but with Ian feeling better today I figured that's not the case. A search for all the symptoms (headache, sore throat, fever, body aches, dry mouth, nausea, severe diarrhea) leads me to believe they've been afflicted by giardia or some other form of food/water contamination. Since there's really nothing to be done for it other than fluids and rest we're especially thankful for the long weekend.

Let's spin the wheel and see who is next!
