we get hit head-on by little germy, sickness bugs. I got it first, then Seth got a touch of it, then Colton and now Nana. Who's next? Your guess is as good as mine. The point is we've been a sickly bunch for the last several days. I pretty much stayed in bed for 24 hours, feeling awful, then, as if by magic *poof*, I was much better. Still have a snotty nose but my sore throat, fever and body aches are nowhere to be seen. Seth and his extraordinary immune system managed to squeeze by with just minor sinus issues. Colton on the other hand got hit hard by this bug. He didn't eat or drink for a full 24 hours. He had to be held constantly, that was the only way to keep him comfortable. He had a fever, sore throat, cough, and just about every other symptom of winter-sickness you can imagine. My son always seems to get sick on the weekend, when the Peds office is closed, so I took him this morning to the Family Care Clinic here in Frankfort. It was determined that he had an ear and respiratory infection, so we got some antibiotics and headed home. After two doses of meds (added to his eye-drop regimen, which he still HATES) he is still not quite back to normal but much, much better.
Me, on the other hand, well I'm burnt out, exhausted, spent... just another day in the life of a snotty mommy.
