Can you FedEx chicken soup?

My daughter is sick. She woke up yesterday with a fever and sore throat. The doctor says it could be mono but infection is more likely, possibly strep, but the quick test was negative. If the antibiotic helps, it's not mono. I feel like we're on House.

In six months, if she gets sick, she'll be over a thousand miles away in Arizona. I might not even know when she's sick. I'm not sure if I want her to call me ("Mom, I ache all over. What should I take?") or not. I can't do much long distance.

On the other hand, I'm not ready to let go completely. I want her to need me for just a while longer. Well, not really to need me, just to think she does...
