The true joy in life is the trip. - Robert Hastings

Two weeks into blogging and I'm already slacking. Such a procrastinator you say. But I have my reasons. Last Wednesday, Sweet Pea got sick. And then Friday, I got sick. And then Saturday, my husband (who never gets sick) got sick.
It started with a stuffed up nose and not a lot of sleeping on my part. Sweet Pea was sleeping, but she was so stuffed up that it was causing her to cough every 15-20 minutes and shift in her sleep. She was finally forced to breathe through her mouth. While it didn't seem to affect her sleep, every time I heard her I woke up to make sure she was still breathing. It was the same thing for my husband. We woke up Thursday morning totally exhausted. By Friday night what I thought were allergies due to the crazy up and down Chicago temperatures, was pretty much confirmed to be a cold. I was absolutely miserable. Having not been sick almost my entire pregnancy and not at all since I had Sweet Pea, I wasn't the happiest person. Grateful it was the weekend, I just prayed to get some sleep and was happy to sleep in the next morning. (Read - I woke up at 6:30 instead of 5 am.) The rest of the weekend continued with lots of stuffy noses, sore bodies and as much sleep as we could get.
I thought I was better until yesterday morning when I was convinced I had been run over by a bus. I felt awful. A quick call to the doctor in the morning and a visit shortly after confirmed that no I did not have the flu (or the swine flu) and indeed just a virus and I should feel better soon. The doctor gave me a prescription for some antibiotics and said I can wait out the virus or take these and possibly feel better a little sooner. I chose the antibiotics. Here's hoping I'm back to 100% soon. In the meantime, Sweet Pea sounds much better. I'm thinking she should be good as new tomorrow. Just in time for us to head to Michigan for a family baby shower.
