It Must Be the Plague

Don't you hate it when the lousy Virginia weather pulls a fast one on us? That warm weather earlier in the week was so good; I could have taken a bath in it. I could have bottled it up and saved it for a day like... well, today. I want spring so bad, I can taste it. Pollen and all.

It's been a hard week. Tuesday was especially hard - leaving JJ in the morning to come to work was difficult after being so close with him for the previous four days. I felt like I could hold him forever and that would be okay. Then Tuesday night, I came down with a stomach bug. Thankfully, it didn't last long and I somehow managed to work a half day yesterday. I feel completely fine today.

The only problem with all of this is after stomach flu, you're contagious for at least three days after your symptoms start to go away. I haven't touched my son in two days and still have a few to go. It's excruciating. My house reeks of Lysol and Clorox. If the CDC walked into my house, they may even call it sterile. I've sprayed the walls, doors, doorknobs, light switches, refrigerator, countertops, ceiling fans, baby swing, high chair, toilets, sinks, computer keyboards, cabinet knobs, TV remote..... anything that was even slightly touched got sprayed. I'm going to do it again today, too. JJ can't catch this - he needs time to be well for a while.

Jerry has really stepped up to the plate and taken all baby responsibilities. JJ slept all night last night as a favor to Daddy, which I thought was nice. As a result, I also slept all night, which is something that I haven't done in MANY months. It was great because we all needed it. I could hardly believe it when I woke up this morning.

So now that the stomach bug is gone, I'm continuing to fight the sinus infection that is still hanging around. It's been four weeks and one round of antibiotics for this stupid infection and I've just had enough. I'm probably going to have to do another round of antibiotics to get it to go away. Anybody have a quick fix in the mean time?

I'm hoping that the plague is on the way out and we can start being normal again - whatever that is.

Have you ever considered a Neti Pot? They are really inexpensive and can help keep your sinuses cleaned out. I hope you all get better soon. My heart goes out to you.
