I surrender

I surrender.  I give up.  Sickness continues to visit our house and I am tired of it!!  Quite literally. 

It all started about a week before Christmas.  We were at basketball practice and my throat started to hurt.  Thought it was just a cold.  This "cold"  lasted about 3 weeks and turned into one of the toughest respiratory infections that I have had in a long time.  Coughing became a frequent sound in our house.  At one point I even lost my voice.  Ryan thought that was pretty great!  :)  My body ached, I laid in bed, I had the cold chills.  Every time I thought I was getting better then, WAM, it would hit again.  After two antibiotics, a steroid shot, and a high dose steroid pack, I was on the mend. 

Since then Isaiah has had the cough and ache, and the pukes.  Emma has had the cough and ache, and then the high fever while feeling horrible.  Olivia has coughed and ached, pretty badly, and then she had the puke and fever.  Fortunately, little Allen only got goopy eyes and just recently a little cough and hoarse throat. 

That brings me to Ryan.  He has had all the above too.  Then today he came home from work (which he hardly ever does) with a fever and running to the potty, if you get what I mean. There has been a constant stream of sick people in my house for over a month.  We have had 3-4 days in a row here and there where all was well, but it never lasted long.  I didn't even get to go to church for something like 5 Sundays in a row!  That may be a record for me!!

I am so done with sickos in my house.  Starting to wonder when it will end??!!  Maybe we need to just hole up until it is warm outside again.  Spring can't come soon enough for me.
