And Noah's two-week-long sickness turned out to be strep throat. We finally wised up and got him to a doctor yesterday so hopefully he wont have to be in the fetal position much longer.
This morning, Noah (now functioning at 40%) decided to stay home from church since strep is quite contagious. Upon hearing the news, Alex decided that he was also much too sick to go to church (for the record, he is not sick). I told Alex he still needed to go, even though I was dreading the thought of wrangling 3 kids in church without Noah. This is what he said in the most concerned, panicked voice:
"But I don't want to get my friends sick!"
So I let him stay home.
