How things are going?

Well I am not feeling any better and I am pretty sure Owen is not either. He is drinking a lot and nursing a lot so that is good. We are both coughing up a lung. I still have chills and heat flashes. It comes and goes. Everything taste like plastics. He keeps choking on his snot. Its pretty sad. I called the doctor and they said if he keeps doing that call them Monday. Luckily I will be off work Monday cuz I think I am going to call both my doctor and his on Monday. I believe part of my issue is sinuses..I am feeling so dizzy and light headed. I am not really sure it is the flu we have. But better safe than sorry to talk to the doctor. I just read on Dr. Sears that normal healthy people will get over the flu with no problems. I really love Dr. Sears he is so great.

Well not much else. Just been hanging out at home relaxing.

Hey~ I bought a Neti Pot last October and have not had ONE sinus infection since then! It is the most wonderful thing in the world if you EVER had sinus issues. It's really gross and weird the first few times you use it, but you get used to it and then you won't stop using it because it relieves the sinus preassure and prevents the sinus pain and infections. Go to Walgreens or CVS and they are about $15 and SO worth $100!!!!! If you haven't heard of them, it's a saline/water solution you pour up one nostril and it goes all thoughout your sinus' and comes out your OTHER nostril along with all the crap in your sinus'. Do it, it's amazing.

Julie, Julie! I haven't been blogging for a while and just caught up with everything that is going on with you and Owen. My goodness girl. Poor little man looks so miserable, and I know how it goes when you are too and trying to take care of other people. Mom's aren't allowed to have sick days... I've heard of those neti pots and people have said great things about them...I'd try it if I were you. Hope to be able to see you guys sometime soon when you are all better!! Max has got a couple new tricks he is dying to teach Owen!
