cold and flu season

Dear cold and flu season: You suck.

In the last 6 weeks, we have had...

Christian: 3 weeks of back-to-back who knows what, but he was down for the count (cold symptoms, flu symptoms, stomach issues)
Graham: Nasty cold
Liam: Cough and congestion (consequently gagging on phlem and throwing up)
Molly: Sore throat (for the last 5 weeks)
Graham: 3-day Fever
Graham: Roseola from the fever (miserable!)
Molly: Red eyes and sinus congestion
Liam: Temperature and throwing up
Molly: Diagnosed with tonsil infection and acid reflux
Christian: Mentioned yesterday that he feels like he's getting a cold...
Graham: Today--yucky runny nose again.

Come on! Can't we get a break? I am sooooo ready for us to be healthy again.

Uhh, that is exactly how I feel! It seems like it's one thing after the next. Turin has had a cough for the past three mos with a perpetual snotty nose. I'm soooo ready for spring! Hope guys guys recover soon as well.

oh man. the worst is when you see that nose start to run, and you know the next week (or two) is going to be torture, and there's no way to stop it.

ps. time for everyone to start eating super healthy. fruit smoothies and lots of veggies.

We had a similar run when that began when I started watching kids. Mae is just getting better and she only started showing improvement when (ta da) I stopped feeling sick. I am glad that I am nursing otherwise I am sure she would have been much worse.
