The sick house

I'm still sick. I stayed home from work today - which is very RARE for me. But that's how crappy I feel. I was awake half of the night coughing - and it's one of those painful, chest rattling coughs.

And then once I did fall asleep, Emma woke me up at 4 am.

With a 102.8 degree fever.

Diagnosis: yet another ear infection. The pediatrician says it's time for tubes in the ears. So, next week we have our consult with the ENT doctor.

Me? Well, I'm going to the doctor today at 3:30....I am leaning toward bronchitis for my diagnosis...but what do I know? My doctorate is in law, not medicine.

Oh, and to top it all off...Olivia threw up this morning. But she's fine now. I think it was a side effect of some minor heartburn. She gets that every now and then.

Yeah, it's been a banner day here.


  1. Ouch, I hope that everyone in your household feels better! It's hard enough when one person is sick, let alone two or three. Get well!!

  2. I love your subtitle - Paging Dr. McDreamy. :)

    Sorry that you and your little one are sick.

    Our family has infected each other with colds as well. Little R. is coughing like crazy and coughed so hard during lunch today that he choked up some of his food. :(

    Here's to hoping everyone in our houses get better!

  3. Lovely week at your house!

    My 1 year old has gotten many ear infections. How awful!!

    Get better soon!
