I have been almost constantly sick since the middle of March. I got a bad cold that led to a nasty case of laryngitis, then passed the cold to Brandon, so he was already sick his first day of daycare. His cold didn't last long (thank goodness), but after only two weeks in daycare, he was sick with the stomach flu. None of the other kids had it, so I think he picked it up elsewhere - possibly through me since my boss' son had it just before Brandon.
Pretty much the day after he was finally over the flu, Brandon got sick with a cold, then I got sick with a cold. That was about two weeks ago and mine just got a lot worse today. Not only that, but Brandon's eyes are inflamed and red with some kind of funky discharge. Doesn't seem to be pink eye, but come on!! Can we all go a month without being sick already? It is supremely sucky to be sick in this nice weather we're having. I went for a bike ride yesterday with Brandon and had to quit early because I was having trouble breathing due to chest congestion. That's just annoying.
I'm done whining now...just needed to vent for a few minutes. We'll all live and hopefully be a little more immune to illnesses that are inevitably going to come up in the next few months.
Update @ 3:08am, May 4/09: Woke up to use the washroom and I can barely swallow. Decided to have a look at my throat and I have white spots all over it. Looks like strep. God help me, I think I'm going to lose my ever-lovin' mind!!!
