quick life update

This week has been probably one of the worst in parenting history. Not because of our child... just because our health was tested! We were a sick household:


January 20- B is sick with Stomach Virus
January 22- baby berbee gets cough
January 24- I start to get a cough- not feeling great
January 26- Baby cough is worse and loud... go to dr... she has croup! Yuck spend the day at home resting and snuggling
January 27- I wake up ill... like can't lift my head off the pillow ill.... freezing cold, sweating and snott running gross ill
I go to the dr.... Flu... I have the damn flu. Prescribe me rest and Tamiflu
January 28- Feel better... Tamiflu works... except I think Tamiflu makes me sad... because I am crying... sad about being sick, sad that I am too sick to keep my baby home with me... sad that I have not been out of the house in days... just plain crying and sad...
However a friend and a pharmacist both told me... "thats the flu"
January 29- I feel better... still not 100 %
January 30- Back to work and still sad... ask pharmacist if I can stop taking Tamiflu... she says no.... and that sometimes Anti-Virals will "make you feel that way"....

I guess the point of my story is- I hate being sick! I hate it even more when my poor baby is sick and I want to just take care of her... but I am too sick to even lift her up... I am typically a tough lady! But this flu certainly got me down this week!!

Wash your hands! Hold your kids close- and wash their hands too!

Tomorrow is a Fresh Start!
