Alex was sick with Roseola (I think) during the drive to NJ and the first few days. My parents wanted to know why I was so concerned about him-- even though he had a fever he wasn't acting cranky. The problem was he was just laying around and not exploring or getting into trouble-- that's how I knew he was really sick. It's the quiet types of sickness that scare me most. Lethargy is not preferable to crankiness. Not until you know they are ok, anyway. Here he received his first lollipop to make him feel better. A few days later he broke out into a rash and a few days after that he was fine. As far as I know, no one we came in contact with got sick. Whew!
