Stripes and the Sickies

March 7, 2011

First of all, thank you to everyone who left me such supportive comments on my last post.  It has been a very long few weeks over here, but I think we are finally on the downhill side of the sick mountain.  We had colds, flu, colds again, ear infections, bronchitis, another cold… basically a whole bunch of yuckiness. I ended up losing 15 pounds in about 10 days.  Creamie lost a few pounds too, which is a much bigger reason to worry.  But her appetite is back finally, and she has slept through the night for four days.  Which is a freaking miracle.  For both of us.

The socks[  I clearly allow my daughter to dress herself.  Clearly.  ]

We still aren’t all the way better.  My bronchitis is hanging on tight, and her runny nose is… well, it’s still running.  But she doesn’t spend all day everyday snuggled up in my lap anymore.  Which is good and bad, but mostly good.  I’ll miss the snuggles, but I am SO SO GLAD she feels well enough to play.  And I finally have the energy to play with her again, and make dinner, and leave my house (I went 12 days without so much as opening my front door).  It might take me a little while to get back to my regular daily posting schedule.  But I finally feel like it is a within the realm of possibility.  Heck, getting dressed and walking to the mailbox on the same day is no longer an impossible task.  And that my friends means we are moving forward.  I’ll be back sooner rather than later.  For reals this time.

    Good to hear a good report from you! Well, at least a somewhat better, on-the-mend report! 🙂

    I’m so glad to hear you are finally mending. Winter with sick kids is SO hard. Ask me how I know.

    I was thinking about you two last night and wondering how you were feeling – so great to see your post today. It’s wonderful that Creamie is back to sleeping and you’ve been out the front door!! Stay well! Cute sox (with the heel 1/2 way up her leg, hehe).

    So sorry you’ve had such a terrible go of it! I know so many people who got really sick this winter — it’s awful. Missed your blog and so glad you both are on the mend!
