This morning Tilly and William woke up coughing with really runny noses. We’ve actually been sickness free for exactly 1 entire day in the past 4 weeks now. That day was Wednesday (yesterday). It started when William had the flu. He has “reactive airways” so usually when he gets a cough, he has wheezing and sometimes trouble breathing. I basically take him to the doctor and then call the health line every single day making them listen to his breathing through the phone. I don’t sleep because I listen to his breathing around the clock. This time the walk-in clinic doctor gave me her cell phone number. So that was helpful. Then when he started getting better, Henry got a stomach virus (So many bodily fluids). Then I had it briefly, then Tilly, then William and then when things were looking up- John got it. And now this (seemingly minor) cold.
I keep my sanity by chanting “they are building their immune systems!” over and over again. We are very healthy compared to some, and we don’t take it for granted.
I just put the LAST load of blankets/towels/pillows in the washing machine from the stomach bug. One day my kids will be able to puke in the puke bowl I provide right? I am extra thankful for leather couches that wipe clean. And Lysol wipes.
Two points for just having 3 kids: Less germs, and Less laundry
