2.5 out of 3 are sick. Not good

I have been fighting allergies and asthma for a good 2 weeks now. It sucks. I ended up in Urgent care on Saturday night for 2 hours. I had to have 2 treatments of albuterol before I could calm down. I am not sure if you can even call it calming down because when you take albuterol, you become so jittery that it is just nuts. I am currently taking albuterol inhalers, symbicort inhaler, Claritin-D, codeine now I had to get some Delsym cough syrup. The cough syrup works. I am glad. It doesn’t take the cough completely away, so now I am taking prednisone as well. Just what every pregnant woman needs… drugs to make you want to eat more, drink more and pee more… I’m doing this enough as it is! J I am feeling better finally though.

While I am sick, Cailin has been having allergies as well. She just has clear snot dripping down her nose. Over the past 2 days, she is starting to act a bit more congested. When we get home from MOPS, on Wednesday, I try to get her to rest and notice she has a fever. It was 102.7. OIY. I give her some Tylenol and she was able to rest. Today, she still has a fever, but is drooling profusely. I know and can feel that her 2 lower 2 year molars are close to coming in. I hope that the fever is due to those. She is feeling snotty and cranky.

While I am recovering still, Chris is loosing energy every day. Tuesday, he has a sore throat, Wednesday, he stays home from work because it is so bad. He has strep throat. He feels miserable. I am doing my best to take care of him, take care of Cailin, take care of the house and dinners as well as trying to get myself better. It is exhausting.

From now on, I want to put a rule into effect… Only one person at a time is allowed to be sick at a time in this household. Think it will work?
