In Sickness and ..... in sickness

Well, the past couple of weeks has been pretty stressful and to top it all off.... the family is playing musical illness. Having a kid in day care is like having an illness carrier. All sorts of fun stuff appear in daycare. Alex is just getting over his RSV (respiratory syncitial virus) spell. For the past 10 days, I have had a respiratory disorder that had me coughing up different colors in the morning and some flecks of blood. My doctor checked me out and prescribed a 10 day supply of antibiotics (at 10 dollars a pill). Thank goodness for health insurance.

Of course, as soon as I'm feeling better, I get nauseated overnight and vomit. Add to that a fever of 101, and you get a day off from work. I'd rather be working, if you ask me. Sandra is the healthiest of the bunch, and she has sinus congestion. Pretty sad, eh?

Anyway, the painters are done in the house and furniture is being delivered tomorrow afternoon. Unfortunately, due to the illnesses, we probably won't be in our house by Christmas. That's okay. The main thing is that I have family to spend it with.

I wish you and yours a very Happy Holiday season and best wishes for the upcoming new year.
