Since my last update, every single person in this family has come down with the cooties. I’m not sure if it is a really bad cold, or a mild flu, but what a miserable week and a half this has been!
I currently have an ear that is completely clogged, driving me insane. I had no voice at all for about four to five days, sore, swollen throat, congestion, nasty cough. Just feeling really awful. And so has everyone else in the house.
I try to avoid medication whenever possible, so there has been a lot of vapor rub and humidifier action going on. We have been using Mucinex though, which is amazingly awesome at helping to make coughing more productive.
I *think* for the most part, everyone is on the mend. Matthew never really was very sick, just the carrier to this lovely super bug. Noah and Sara are leaking a lot less snot, and if my ear wasn’t so dang clogged, I dare say this is the most alive I have felt in over a week.
I don’t remember the last time every single person was sick at the same time in this house. Matthew gets the monster cootie award for managing that one. Him and his mighty super immunity.
