Welcome To My Germ Infested House!

OK, I'm done! Done with all these germs and sickness. Grrr. Two weeks ago the kiddos came home with a cold and graciously shared it with me. All is good, I'm over it in a week of snot filled tissues. Fast forward a week... Now Matthew is sick. A trip to the Dr. reveals severe Tonsillitis an ear infection and Conjunctivitis. Here we go with the steroids, ear drops, eye drops and antibiotics. One day with said sick teenager and I wanted to jump off a cliff!

So I went to a crop in Niles on Saturday for some social interaction (of which I have none, unless you count football and volleyball games) and nose started feeling stuffy and throat scratchy on the way home. Woke up Sunday feeling yucky, yea!

Up at 5am for work on Monday, dragging big time. Did not want to call in to work as I'd missed 2 days with the 1st cold 2 weeks ago. Here's where it went to hell in a handbasket! Cough, cough, hack, hack, my throat feels like it has a giant lump stuck to the back. Brushing teeth and now I feel like I can't swallow! To spare you the description...the charge nurse could hear me "ralphing" my guts out in the background as my hubby told them I couldn't make it :(

A trip to the doctor and $25 later. Diagnosis: Strep Throat and Sinusitis. My diagnosis: miserable. So that's why my blog and scrappy life have been neglected! Now Mariel is complaining of a sore throat and headache. Here we go again!

Do they have a germicide that you can pipe through your ventilation system???
