Well, it’s been a full two weeks of sickness here at our house. First McRuger, then Cadet, then me, and now back to Cadet again. We’ve run through the whole spectrum of sick: vomiting, diarrhea, sinus infection, itchy ears, coughing, fever, body aches, sore throat, exhaustion, and back again. There have been trips to the doctor and urgent care, and more than a few trips to the drug store. Our kitchen counter looks like a pharmacy.
Let me tell you, it’s been a real rough time. And now? And now McRuger is in Asia for a two week business trip…leaving me (not sick, but not yet well) with Cadet (still a little sick, and more than a little miserable). My mother actually postponed her flight to Hawaii to stay will me while we’re recovering.
So, here we are…a little island of sickness.
Cadet and I are really quite the pair at the moment. I’m coughing from all the sinus drainage. Cadet is congested and clingy, but still well enough that he wants to play. Being sick with his SPD is particularly challenging (more sensations he doesn’t know what to do with). Sadly, neither of us are sleeping particularly well.
It’s been nice having my mom here to help. While she can’t do much physically, just having her here makes this a lot easier.
Sufficed to say…not much else is happening here!
