What did I do to deserve such bad Karma?

WOW, I have been sick now since Thursday. It started out as the shivers, uncontrollable, and then dizziness, tiredness, unable to think and was very very cold. I ended up going to Medpoint at Martins and they said I have acute bronchitis/pneumonia. I got on a prescription to help out with that. Then Monday took Owen to the doctor and he has a bilateral ear infection (meaning both ears are infected) she said they were oozing with puss. NICE!!! So Owen is also on an antibiotic. Not to mention I can not stop coughing for the life of me. So my doctor called me in another script for a cough suppressant. And the cherry on top is I have a very upset belly and now a cold sore to boot!!! LOVELY times!!!

So I am sitting here trying to motivate myself to get around and get dressed so I can go get my script and gas and then the Odoggy. I miss my little man so much. I know he is not feeling good right now either and I feel like such a lousy mom sending him off to daycare while I stay home. But I am afraid of him getting what I have..and I think that would be much worse then him being at daycare.

So Wes picked me out a new wedding ring and we bought it on Sunday. It was on sale for half the price and it is very pretty and it should not scratch Owen so I should not have to take them off. It takes three weeks to get it sized. I am so excited to have a ring again. Now watch we will find my original wedding rings now..they will somehow magically appear in a place that I have checked 1000 times. Has that ever happened to you?

OK enough boo hooing about not feeling good. Wes has been a huge help. I have cried numerous times because I am feeling so useless. But I have to be getting better every day!!! And so is Owen. It just sucks that I have to find a way to choke meds down him again for 10 days. OYE VEY!!!

PS due to this illness my milk supply has diminished tremendously. It makes me sad to think that this may be the time to ween the little guy. If I can not get my supply back up in the next few days I may have to start considering it.

Julie... I know what a pain it is to give meds to kids (max takes his good, but Caedy fights me every drop) They just gave Max azithromycin for an ear infection last week its 1 tsp the first day and 1/2 tsp for 4 more days thats it! Next time Owen is sick ask for it its like an adult z-pack if you've ever had that. I wish I would have known about it sooner sure makes giving meds easier!
