Over the weekend, Andrew contracted some form of spectacular Gastro-Intestinal Tract infection. So no sleep, cleaning up the mess and getting him drinks of water between the half-hourly barfs over the course of the night.
The last two days, I've had it too. So has Carmel - involving a call to the Ambulance service, as she has a neurological problem - she has petit mal seizures when she vomits. I made it back from the hospital - just - before tossing my cookies yet again, for the n-th time that day.
Anyway, correspondence, e-mails etc will be delayed, and it's not doing my PhD any good at all. I have a paper to complete before the 12th of January.
