It's so hard to take care of each other when everyone is sick. Poor Emma.
When I was in a Puppet Troupe called, SMILE Inc. we went carolling with our muppet-style puppets to raise money for the Santa Fund. (We're talking '80.) One of the homes we went to, the woman had no spare change and her husband was out at a business meeting. Her son was sick witht he Chicken Pox. We sang four songs there in effort to cheer him up. He tried to smile, but we could tell he was feeling awful. "Like a slug." The way you described your daughter reminded me of how that little boy was feeling.
Hope everyone is better now.
