Deliver Us From Germs

Hi. Marguerite is healthy, but her parents aren't. Mark's got it worse. Horrible sore throat. Fever. Skipped going to the office only to have work follow him home (If Mohammed won't go to the mountain...) and is consequently worse off for it (Not that I want anybody to feel bad about it or anything, but he was feeling a wee bit better yesterday morning, but having to spend time in front of two computers made him relapse to beyond the point from which he started). At least it's the weekend. Bad thing though is he has insisted on being put on antibiotics (this one is okay with the drugs, eh?) because he is perfectly miserable. Thank goodness we've been doing baby signs with our daughter because it hurts the poor man to talk and he has been signing to communicate (water, eat, more...). He can't eat (sends back bowls of soup after a few sups), but I've been plying him with copious mugs of hot tea and warm water with lemon and honey. He is also gargling Bactidol at two-hour intervals. Hopefully one of these methods work.
