My Bug has pneumonia, most probably secondary to RSV. We are all trapped in a medium-small room in the local Children's Hospital, with periodic invasions by the Droplet-Precaution Pod People.

The only highlight has been the doctor at urgent care asking if we were medical professionals. "No," I said, "we have doctorates in biochemistry."

"But... you can count respirations?"

And I did not say: "Yes, I can count past twenty, thanks."
