When Roo started preschool last year, people warned me that she would get sick a lot. It's natural because her body wasn't used to so many germs and her immune system would have to adapt and build up.
Well, build up we have done.
My daughters (and myself) have been so sick since she started school. We spent the first two months of this year passing colds and flus back and forth. We had a brief reprieve for a few weeks but now we're back to being sick again.
It started with a fever in Roo, then developed into wheezing. Now Turtle has a fever and I have a horrible cough.
I'm so tired of being sick and so tired of sick babies. I feel so bad for them when they are sick, especially with Roo because of her heart conditions, she can't have any sort of stimulant. That means she can have honey for a sore throat and a humidifier for her cough.
Poor kid coughed so much the other night she threw up everywhere.
All I do really do is cuddling her and pump her full of fluids (not literally, people) and give her lots of love.
Turtle is easy when she's sick, just turn on Dora the Explorer and she's happy as a clam.
Now if only I could get someone to play bad reality tv for me, bring me cold orange juice and rub my temples.
That would make being sick so much easier... Don't ya' think?
