The Sickroom


…The bed-room should be capacious and well ventilated; fresh air frequently admitted; and if the season of the year permit, and there is no dampness of atmosphere, a window should be constantly open during the day…

From The Maternal Management of Children, in Health and Disease written by Thomas Bull, M.D in 1840


We seem to have acquired a nasty stomach bug, and it is clinging to us for dear life. The girls and I have been sick since last Wednesday with various amounts of fever, vomiting, and diarrhea. We finally seem to be beginning to mend, and are enjoying some sunshine and light exercise today as part of our therapy.


Thankfully Dan was able to spend some time at home, assisting with the illness, and cleaning up the results of the illness.
