It wouldn’t be November without a post talking about how <insert seasonal sickness of choice> has infiltrated our household.
So I’ll keep this short since I am currently typing this on my iPhone while lying in bed, wracked with chills and surrounded by tissues, saltines, and a variety of cold medications.
Merry got sick first with some upper respiratory something that progressed to pneumonia over a 3 day period. One trip to the ER, a chest x-ray, and many antibiotics and breathing treatments later she seems to be on the mend. She’s still congested but is eating and drinking again and no longer wants to be held 24/7 (we’re down to maybe 21/7). She scared us.
I got it next (of course). I’m on about my 4th day of chills and über congestion. I am miserable.
J even got it this time. He almost never does. He’s about a day behind me on recovery. We’re both pretty pathetic.
Ava is coming down with it now. She just started complaining of sore throat and headache. I’m just hoping it doesn’t hit her as hard as it has the rest of us.
Ahhh, NyQuil. Please work tonight.
