Guess what happened yesterday? I came down with some kind of weird fluish sickness. I couldn't lift my head off my pillow all day--nausea, chills, body aches, you name it. Thankfully, John was here on reserve and didn't get called into work. He took over all Becca-care and household duties. I was horizontal all day. I slept at least 15 hours (and I feel almost totally better today). Jim and Jo Anne also came down with that mystery virus a couple days ago. Illnesses 'R Us! Stop by anytime! We give them out for free!
Also, the best antibiotic to treat Becca's UTI is amoxicillin and I'm pretty sure she is mildly allergic to it. After her second dose she seemed to get a mild rash and something that looked like a bug bite on her face. I gave her some Benadryl and tried not to hyperventilate. I think I'll be checking on her all night tonight to be sure she's breathing. The past week she has ended up in bed with me anyway because she just keeps crying. Tonight will probably be no different. It is like having a newborn in the house again! No sleep! Constant worry!
John had to go fly a three-day trip today, so let's just hope things can stay calm and un-sick around here! I have never had such a scary, roller coaster week. Things start to look better and then something else weird happens. I really, really hope tomorrow is the day when things just go back to normal.
So, Happy New Year! Here are my resolutions:
1. No one in the house is allowed to have any seizures or any serious illnesses
2. Get my photos organized--both digital and hard copies
3. Eat more fish
4. Find a way to get paid for being on the Internet
What are your resolutions?
