sick, sick, sick, sick, sick….

this darn cold has made a complete sweep!

shane started it almost 2 weeks ago now.  went to bed monday night totally fine, woke up tuesday morning coughing, hoarse, and feeling crummy.  that progressed to a runny nose that wouldn’t stop and, although he’s better now, he’s still got the cough.

a week ago, micah started coughing, and a day later, layla.  so the week has been filled with coughing and whining, and long naps and wiping runny noses and the constant hum of the humidifier.

although i tried really, really hard not to get it, on friday i could tell i was about to be unsuccessful and yesterday i finally gave in and admitted that i was sick.

this morning, dave woke up and said, we’re not going to church… i have phlegm.  and he’s since decided he’s not going to soccer tonight and has planted himself on the couch.

poor layla, as usual, got it the worst.  i don’t know what it is with her, but the child has always had a really bad time with colds.  she’s completely miserable, has a fever off and on and has now started complaining that her ear hurts.  yesterday, she started coughing so hard at lunch that she made herself throw up all over her plate.  lovely, i know.  she slept all of yesterday afternoon and went back to bed before 9 and didn't get up until after 10 today, so you know she wasn’t feeling well. 

here she is, the grand duchess of west rhinovirus, looking her best:Picture 320

poor thing, i think she was even attempting to look happy for the camera.

here’s hoping we’re on the mend.  and for some warmer weather after this is all over because this house will be in major need of an airing out!


  1. Aww, the poor thing! Have you tried an air cleaner? We got an ionic pro, and the amount of colds around here has decreased big time. That and it makes things smell nice. Not air freshener nice, but really clean nice.

  2. My 5 year old's face looks like that, too :( Dang germs.
