Now I have it too. The minor sore throat, low fever, headache, body ache thing I had this week turned ugly yesterday. Higher fever, bad cough, chills... I've been up since about 4:30 with various kids, and I decided to stay up and drink some hot tea, instead of going right back to bed.
But if I have to get it to produce the antibodies to protect Jack, then I'll take it.
How on earth do people manage to deal when they, or their kids, are really ill? I know this will pass, and that keeps me going. I guess when it's bad you deal because you don't have a choice. One foot in front of the other. What else can anyone do?
A friend of mine had a baby on 12/29, and she's in the hospital with RSV. It seems like everyone on Facebook has at least one sick kid. But it could be worse, it could always be worse, and so even in the midst of it, I'm grateful.
