Ho Ho Ho...Merry *cough, hack, snif, moan* Christmas?
Just when I thought we were over the sickies, from Dec. 14th to the 18th, with the stomach flu for Kiera and a huge head cold for me, leaving us bed-ridden for days, we find out on Christmas eve that she has pink eye! After a trip to the hospital for medicine and a diagnosis, we have a lovely, if not swollen Christmas day. Only to find out the next morning that I have woken up with a fever and body aches...will it never end?
I sucessfully manage to get dressed and in the car, no small feat, since I feel like death. Only to arrive 8 hours later at my grandmothers house feeling no better. Another day of fever and body aches, then another, until I finally feel a sore throat, to which I must go to the hospital again (on my VACATION!) to get a diagnosis of strep thraot and an antibiotic Rx. I feel a little better the next day, but manage to feel crappy until Dec. 31st, just in time to celebrate the new year with friends.
I have a few drinks and a good time at home laughing with friends and eating good food while playing a fun game before watching the ball drop and bring in the new year with health! Finally!!!
