Still sick

My children gave me their awful, horrible, no good, very bad cold. My eyes are watery, my nose drips continuously, and I have a nasty cough. Also, my head feels like it weighs 200 pounds. Gah. As you might have guessed, we sat around the house doing NOTHING all weekend long. My kids were bouncing off the walls, but I was too sick to care.

Porgie's cold caused her to cough so violently, that she ended up breaking blood vessels on the surface of her skin. I noticed that Porgie had what appeared to be "freckles" under her eyes. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that they were tiny red dots. They were under both eyes and across her eyelids. I frantically called the doctor, certain that my child had the bubonic plague. It turns out that broken blood vessels from violent coughing/vomiting is fairly common. It cleared up in about 2 days.

Although Porgie is feeling much better, poor little Izzy still has a pretty bad cough and a runny nose. I have to go into his room to comfort him two or three times per night. I think all of this sleep deprivation is starting to have a negative effect on my little guy. Out of nowhere, Izzy fell and bashed his head into a door frame last night...I am looking forward to getting out of house and breathing fresh air again. I have my fingers crossed that this week will bring healing and happy times.

We've been sickly in our house lately too. Both Bayley and I are on antibiotics. My husband is not. A-hole.

Hope you guys get to feeling better.

We're all coming down with a bug too. In fact, I'm eating chicken noodle soup as I type, to try to ward off the yukkies. Both kids are snotty, cough-y messes. I should have known that Will was getting "something" as he was a miserable, mean-spirited...meanie all last week. He got sad-faces on his PreK report all week and was even picking fights with his little friends last week. One of them (not a real "friend", just a cousin of one of his buddies.) got so upset with Will pushing & bossing everyone around, that he shoved him & Will now sports a humongous scrape on his knee where he fell. He hates band-aids, so every night it hurts to take a bath, and every morning I have to peel his jammies off the scrape. big fun, big fun.

Poor Izzy! That's quite a bump. Hopefully, you all get well soon.
