We are all sick here. The big kids all have coughs and sniffles and are feeling under the weather. Ben is finding that all food tastes wrong. He’s thrown up a few times but I think it’s the cough and the post-nasal drip. Poor Anthony is probably feeling it the worst. I have to clear his nose for him to nurse and he throws up a bit after most feedings and every time I give him ibuprofen. Fortunately enough seems to stay in that it does help him feel a bit better for a little bit. I’ve spent large chunks of the last few days just holding him as he moans and coughs. My throat is raw and my sinuses are stuffy and I feel so achy and tired. Yesterday afternoon I passed out on the bed with Anthony. And Dom seems rather under the weather too.
Of course the house is a total disaster because no one has the energy to clean. I did a bit of laundry this morning when I had a bit of energy and Anthony had a small space where he felt well enough to crawl about. It’s amazing how time creeps by when you’re under the weather. I haven’t had any real time to write because I can’t put Anthony down to bed at bedtime. Ditto for watching the shows Dom and I watch. But perhaps that’s for the best. I’ve been going to bed earlier. I won’t say I’ve been getting more sleep with Anthony so restless and fussy all night but at least I’ve been in bed for more of the night.
So it goes in a sick house.
