So I told you I got an early start the other day… what I haven’t had a chance to come back and say is that about five minutes after publishing that post both girls woke up crying. Not normal. All this followed by crazy clear runny noses and later fevers. A “great” day ends as my Enginerd gets home and I discover he is obviously sick too with a sore throat, headache, tunny nose and fever. This is where I honestly nearly want to scream when do I get a break Lord?!
One if not all of us has been sick for over a year now. It seems we cannot go a week before the next thing hits. I have been privately trying to deal wig whatever this sinus bit is that just won’t give and on Sunday I was contimplating going back to the ENT for another antibiotic. Can I tell you how sick of medicine I am? I’ve been trying to hold it off as I haven’t had a fever or anything else… for me it is just an odd pain in my cheek and a weird smell more so following a hard cough or sneeze. Surely if I were that sick something else would present.
So… it has been a day or so now and my kiddos are pitiful. The preschooler AppleBlossom is complaining of a sore throat constantly and asking for ice cream every five minutes while the toddler OrangeBlossom is attached to my knee. Freaking out if I even think to walk across the room. Now I type this as one has fallen asleep against whimpers, the Enginerd behind closed doors in oblivion and the youngest just now asleep at my chest after nursing herself through sobs of exhaustion.
I’m fine in comparison and I just know it will come later. After all I think this is the fourth round of a similar cold/flu/sinus issue is 13 months. Typing one handed here from the app on my Kindle Fire. So please forgive any typos…
