River of Stones - Day 12

               Illness appears as red and white dotted tonsils,
               swollen and painful.
               Fever creates duelling echos of sweat and chills.
               Coughs often join in with the headache's throbbing beat..
               Today I remain at home. My girl needs her mommy.

I like the "duelling echoes of sweat and chills". The four lines of description do resonate because most of us know what it's like: not fun.

Thanks, everyone. At least her fever is gone.
