As I mentioned in an earlier post, the Duchess has a cold and has not been sleeping well at all. Every two hours she wakes up coughing violently and goes in the other room so as not to disturb the Duke. When it subsides and she climbs back into bed, she reaches for me and we cuddle. I curl up against her and she massages the silky softness of my neck and ears until she drifts off to sleep. Last night she told me I am the best medicine for her. And as I waited for my next "massage session" I thought "sometimes a virus can be a good thing"!
