We're Back!

Even though I haven't been able to post due to technical difficulties, you're probably glad I couldn't. All that you would have heard about is Fisher being sick, Barrett being sick, and me being sick.

Fisher was first. He started with a fever and bad mood. Two days later, Barrett was running a fever too. The following morning, I woke up sick.

We all three apparently had some virus that mainly just causes a fever.

Fisher ran a fever for about a week, but besides that, he was his usual self. The only real impact him being sick had on us was that he slept through the night. Luckily, he's fever has been gone for quite a few days, and he's still sleeping at night. :)

Barrett wasn't as lucky as Fisher. He ended up with gunk in his lungs, diagnosed as pneumonia, and had to do the whole breathing treatment thing along with a bunch of meds. He loved the breathing treatment mask. He would wear it around the house and call it his costume. Somehow he also ended up with ringworm on his back , so we treated that too.

I ended up feeling the worst of the bunch. I had the fever thing and pneumonia, but I also got to enjoy pleurisy. My doctor was convinced that if I would just rest, I would feel better. (She doesn't have any children, much less two sick ones.) Once my doctor loaded me up on steroids, antibiotic, and vicodin, I've been feeling better and better.

Now we are all well, and Barrett is at school today. If I could just convince Fisher to take a nap, I might actually try to tackle the mountain of laundry.

We had that crap down here too. I have done my penance with it and didn't get pneumonia. That stuff really bites. Glad to hear everyone is better!
