Yep. Sick, again. Actually, I think we are all on the road to recovery at this point. It started a week and a half ago with The Queen. I spent the night sitting in a chair holding her so that she could sleep. She was coughing so much, and sitting up seemed to help. A trip to the pediatrician yielded a diagnosis of "sinus infection" and a Rx for an antibiotic. The next 2 nights a continued to sit in the chair holding her so she could sleep. Wednesday night The Princess started with a hacking cough and fever, etc. Another trip to the pediatrician and the diagnosis of the Flu! By this time, I am also feeling like yuck. However, I continue our nighttime routine of sitting in the chair, but now I am alternating the girls so they can both get some sleep. Of course, this means I haven't had sleep in about 4 nights. The Princess didn't seem to improve after the Flu treatment and has a few new symptoms, so ANOTHER trip to the pediatrician. The diagnosis this time is Strep. More medicine. My kitchen counter looked like a pharmacy. By this time I had resorted to "sleeping" sitting in the chair so I wouldn't cough so much and could get some (?) sleep.
This has been one of the worst "winter" seasons I have experienced. The weather is just refusing to admit that it is SPRING. Everyone has been sicker than any other year. I can't help but think that the weather and the illnesses are related. It can't be from my messy house:).
