He spent today with Will's parents and Will's mother reports that he crept up very carefully to the bird feeders and gently touched a pine siskine on the tail. (It hopped to a different perch.) Something about this must have made a big impression on him, because when I got home from Hanford today he told me "buh, buh" which is his "word" for bird. Sweet baby, I love it when he tells me about his days.
Will is sicker and has said he will call the doctors tomorrow. He had another fever today and his oxygen saturation and lung functions are down. Hopefully it won't lead to hospitalization.
My work week: regular office, regular office, Hanford (14 hour day), regular office, Hanford.
Next week: regular office (or maybe Seattle), regular office, Wenatchee overnight, Wenatchee then home (14 hour day), Bellingham (14 hour day).
Week after: regular office, DC, DC, DC, DC.
Sucks. That's for sure.
