Tired of Being Sick

I know, I know it's been forever! I'll have to do a couple of posts to catch y'all up on everything that's been going on. We'll start with this....I'm sick! AHH!

Well it all started the Friday before last. The baby woke up that morning around 8 (that's late for him) with a temp. of 101.5. That's the highest temp he's ever had and he's never been sick before so I kind of panicked. I called the Pediatrician's office and got him in pretty much right away. They ran a flu test on him because that has been going around here BAD. It came back negative (YAY). So they said it was just a virus and there is nothing they can do about that (boo). We had a really busy weekend, so this was horrible timing (more on that later). Anyway, Saturday he woke up with a temp. of 102.7! Poor baby! We kept alternating his Tylenol and Motrin and by that afternoon his fever broke. From that point on he was fine. What a trooper.

So fast forward to exactly a week later. My throat starts hurting....not a good sign. Saturday morning I went to the doctor and come to find out...I have strep. So I went ahead and got the penicillin shot (SOOOOOOO painful!!!!!) hoping it would clear it up quickly. Well needless to say 3 days later, it hasn't'. Seriously, this sucks! I was hoping it would go away quickly, but I guess not. I'm starting to feel a little better today but still not great. I'm tired of not having any energy and being stuck in the house. Hopefully it will go away soon.

Now, the baby's been coughing for the past two nights. My friend's baby, who is the same age as mine and is always around mine, has croup. Sooooooo I'm just guessing that's what were gonna have next.

When will this end???!!! We need to get better!!! Prayers please :)
