Normally, when the kids get sick, it's pretty minor and my biggest worry is what I'm going to do for the sick note. This was 2 1/2 years ago and I can still vividly remember looking at Sophie on the couch as she started panting in her sleep. You truly do not understand fear until you have kids. Luckily, the wonderful nurse practitioners who take frantic calls from parents are very understanding. The one upside is that I had a full three days to write this.
