Last weekend, Brian came down with the cold Liam had been fighting already for a week. It hit him pretty hard, and I could see it. I tried to make him take it easy over the weekend, repeatedly asking him to just sit with the kids and watch TV or lie down or something, but he refused, insisting on working on unpacking boxes and mowing the lawn and such. When Monday rolled around, he was so beat down by the cold and exhaustion that he wound up leaving work early that morning and spending the rest of the day in bed.
