Although Dodong's health issues are more serious in the long term, (food allergies SUCK!), Grump's were worse temporarily.
He woke up with a sore throat and a fever, after coughing so hard last night that he puked a few times. Ugh!
While always less than a joy, vomiting is even more irritating when it is triggered by your gimpy respiratory system, rather than your digestive track.
So Grump called in sick today, missing the second day of his class. (Much to his fellow classmates' delight, no doubt!)
After being woken up early by Venerable Sanford, who stomped into his apartment at 7:00 am and quickly stomped back out again, Grump lay around for several hours gathering what little remaining wits and energy he had, to try to collect himself for the long drive back to Macon.
Fortunately it was a clear day, and traffic was light, and without any negative incidents Grump made it home a little after lunchtime. Once he brought his suitcase and dirty clothes back into the house, he promptly went back to bed.
The good news of the day was that Squeak Elf made another flight last night, landing very early this morning near where Sweetie keeps some photos.
