Since my kiddos were sick.
The past year…we haven’t been sick very much at all. I mean nothing. Not even so much as a runny nose.
It’s wonderful when your kids get a little older, their immune systems mature, and they are able to fight off the typical sneezes and sniffles and the occasional doozy of an infection, on their own!
Yesterday, just five short days before the first day of 1st grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade, and the Nursing Program…Jack decided to succumb to the germs, and he’s sick!
Strep throat. An ear infection. Upper respiratory infection. And croup!!!
All at once.
He’s on a double dose of antibiotics, breathing treatments, and steroids, and Tylenol and Ibuprofen round the clock to attempt to keep his fever in check. He should be right as rain, and no longer contagious by the first day of school, though.
But, what about the rest of us?
My head feels funny and my throat is scratchy…and I’m convinced that Lily and I will come down with this crap, come Sunday!! We’re the only ones excited about starting school, and it seems like it would fit that we’d be the ones to be stricken with the crud, forcing us to stay home!!
I know, I know…I shouldn’t be so negative, and I shouldn’t send shit like that into the universe. Hopefully, it’s just psychosomatic, and it’s nothing.
Hopefully, come Monday…I don’t look anything like this…
