AEB writes to Eleanor that he/she "can't work and don't know what to do" because of spots that "certainly are a fright." I'm thinking measles? Chicken pox? Mumps? Poor AEB.
Thank you for the well wishes; my son has strep throat and is now armed with the appropriate antibiotics, so I'm confident he will be better soon. Of course, this morning I awoke with a sore throat, too -- gah!
