In Sickness and in Health

Last Friday I was called to the school to pick up one very sick young girl.  Pale, listless and with a dreadful headache, she shouldn't have gone to school in the first place, but was adamant she couldn't miss hockey training.  By the time I'd made it into the school, she was joined by older sister, also the colour of porcelain, and cold and clammy to the touch.  Sarah has since recovered from what became a rather nasty head cold.


Jessie on the other hand has been granted an extension to school holidays which are to start this Friday, with a suspected case of Rubella.  Although the worst of the 'sickness' seems to be behind her, she still has some rash appearing.  Although vaccinated, there is apparently still a slight chance of infection occurring.


Fortunately, she's well enough to iron.

    Hope everything is overcome ASAP.

  4. heh heh, while I feel for you and your poor girl, I laugh at the hard line: you have to be dead, dieing or bleeding and missing limbs to get out of chores! ;-)

    hope no lasting implications, and where on earth did she manage to get it from if everyone else is immunised?!

  5. Poor thing I hope she doesn't stay unwell for too long. She'd be like my daughter desperate to learn to iron and help out.
