I am exhausted. Singularly exhausted. I've been in West Virginia for the last two days on business, driving back and forth between there and home each morning and evening. And while we have healthy kids yet it seems like they've been sick almost continuously for the last three weeks. Let's take a look at the last 21 days.
Days 1 - 6 - Mia pukes. A lot. She recovers very slowly, refusing to eat, and stays home from school for an entire week.
Day 7 - Look. Everyone's healthy. Don't get excited. It's not going to last.
Days 8 -10 - Owen pukes. A lot. He, too, recovers very slowly yet he's not nearly as grumpy as his older sister. Insists he's Anakin Skywalker. Bad Anakin Skywalker.
Day 11 - Beth almost pukes. It's touch and go for a while but everything works out okay.
Days 12 - 13 - I get a weird, high 24 hour fever, feel like smacked ass for a while then miraculously wake up feeling great.
Days 14 - 20 - Mia comes down with pneumonia, visits doctors, has breathing treatments, misses lots of school.
Days 21 - ? - Owen gets double ear infections. Refuses to sleep. Parents cry. And drink a little bit.
And that's why I'm so tired. I'd like a medically induced coma now, please.Posted by Chris at April 14, 2011 7:18 AM
