How can it keep getting worse? I mean, it just shouldn't be possible. And no Mercury to blame, or anything.
Dh tried to go to work today - I took one look at him and sent him to Urgent Care. His eye was bright red and just oozing. Ick. Allison was better this morning, clingy and whiny (but that's usual, so nothing new) All was well-ish until I picked them up from school - Allison's teacher said she'd thrown up this morning just after arriving, but since she knew A was on the abx, and since said vomit was nice and pink, she knew A was OK, just having a tummy reaction to the meds. She really didn't feel the need to call me. I appreciate that, but hate that A was feeling so lousy all day. Not that there was much I could have done. She did eat her lunch, and said she was hungry when she got home. But by 5:00 she was getting hot again, and her voice was very froggy. She's not complaining of pain while peeing, yay, but she's now got some *new* upper resp bug. Her glands are swollen like crazy, she's been warm all evening even with Tylenol in her, and she just looks like hell. I feel *so* bad for her - her poor immune system is just wracked, and I'm at a loss for what to do. We're doing probiotics and a bunch of whole food supplements, especially since she isn't eating again this evening. But I feel like she's got at least three things going on (UTI, possible yeast, and now new cold-ish seeming virus) it's just too much!
DH is definitely on the upswing, though, YAY. Urgent Care was ridiculously unhelpful, said that he probably had "flu virus in his eye" and that while it was almost definitely viral he should take abx anyway. He's smart enough to just take the script and walk away, and with another day's rest in him he's looking much better. It does help me to know that there isn't anything else brewing, he isn't likely to have a seizure or anything, and he can just go about his business. Yay.
Late this afternoon I was hit by a serious wave of fatigue - I just suddenly felt like I'd been hit by a truck. And now my left eye is burning and watering... carp! I don't have time to be sick right now. Really, really, really I don't. And I'm nursing this fanged toddler and it's really, really painful and like nails on chalkboard. I'm seriously working toward weaning, but slowly.
Calgon, take me away. Oh, that reminds me of a very funny post from the Yarn Harlot.
At least I can still laugh until I wet myself.
