Pin It Weekly # 232

Have you been pinning lately, or have you been fighting the flu virus? It's been the latter for the Marcotte group. Everyone, except Richard and me, has had the flu. They just keep spreading it around to each other. While I didn't get the flu, I got flu duty. All of the kids--no matter what age they are--were laid up for three full days.

Water, no. Sprite, no. Gatorade, no.
Medicine, no.
Whining, no.

I'll assume that he did some of that. Maybe he did all of it. I just didn't see him move. I'd go look in on him, and he may have changed position, but it was barely perceptible. It's unnerving to watch your grandson for signs of life. 

So pinning was not on the priority list, let alone at the top. But I have some improv quilts that I haven't shown you from my "heart, quilts" board. Here you are....

It is very kind of your family to share everything so generously.
But I will be serious and say I hope they get better quickly and that you don't get it!
