Miss Calamity. I rather think it looks like a fairy tale ship's berth.
Thank you all for your encouragements and suggestions. We are limping along, trying to get this thing under control.
My gut feeling is that we have Pertussis. Whooping Cough has been invading our area and I believe that we may be the latest victims. Interestingly it seems to be affecting the immunized and un-immunized alike. After a particularly bad night (Sir Knight almost passed out in the middle of a coughing fit, and three more children developed the tell-tale whoop) I got on the phone with our family doctor. Her immediate assessment was Pertussis. She requested that we bring one child in for testing, while prescribing all of us antibiotics so that we could reduce the severity of our illness. Master Hand Grenade drew the short straw and got to have the nasal swab preformed on him. We should know with certainty later today or tomorrow. I will keep you posted.
