More or less.  My lungs were scarred when I had pneumonia years ago, and as
a result this type of virus is particularly deadly to me.  So it takes a
while for me to recover fully, but I'm at the stage where I can get around
and complain about how filthy the house is and why don't I have the kind of
model children who either don't make messes or clean up after themselves.
Rotten little monsters.  (And the adorable one toddled in this morning and
informed me that she threw up on the carpet, and it was red.  (Not the
carpet.  Red fruit punch.  Overindulgence, not illness.)  But she didn't
catch the virus, which would have put her in the hospital, so I'm satisfied.
