The calm before the storm

Saturday, April 16, 2011. Utterly and completely zonked.  4pm and he fell asleep. Just like that. Right there on the chair. Family was coming for dinner–they’d be there soon. He slept through their arrival. I knew he was a bit “off”. By Sunday night he spiked a fever and I took him to the doctor on Monday to confirm what I already knew. He hopped onto the exam table and when the doctor asked what was wrong he said, reaching for his ear “I got a ea-uh infection.”
