msauvage purple

(no subject)

Sister Girl's in her bed crying because "the pain in her legs has gotten so bad" (I'm not sure what this is about, but the phrasing sounds like it's a chronic condition--from standing on her feet at work all day?) and she feels "really really hot, but really really cold at the same time." The latter indicated fever to me, so I went and got Advil (which, actually, is all we have on hand, I think). Is there something obvious I should do for her that I'm overlooking? I told her I'd check on her in half an hour.

ETA: Oh, shit, my mother thinks it's the flu.

ETA 2: Aw, hell, doctor says it's the flu.

If it's breakfast, it must be Thursday night

Not much tonight--since I got up with Sister Girl and her flu last night, I didn't get a lot of sleep, and I sat downstairs with her today as well. The doctor's got her on a few things to help the symptoms (I'm not sure--can you actually treat the flu itself? Is it viral? Whatever he's got her on, I trust him), and her legs have stopped hurting. (Yes, apparently it's that flu.) My mother's exhausted from also sitting up with Sister Girl and holding a cold compress to her head, and then trying to coordinate tomorrow's office Christmas luncheon, so we're both going to try to go to bed ASAP.

That said, I posted the third part of the Golden Compass earlier today at m15m (I should have said something earlier, actually). Enjoy--just send me good not-getting-flu thoughts.
