Sick

Before I recap yesterday... Today I feel like CRAP. Valerie is still sick and now I've got it. Yesterday afternoon my throat started feeling scratchy. I downed as much Airborne as possible before bed. During the night my throat felt like it was on fire. I made at least 3 glasses of hot honey lemon tea trying to get some relief. Poor Valerie was up all night long. She's medicated on a coctail of Tylenol/Motrin, Hyland's Teething tablets, Zithromax, and some kind of cough/decongestant liquid. Yet she's still screaming and chomping on her hands (FOUR molars are coming in at once and her gums are all bloody. Ow.) None of our old standbys are soothing her and she just cries and cries. I had to get up at least three times with her last night. Once was for over an hour! Then she was up at 5:30 crying and at 6:00 I said to hell with it and just got up. My immune system is just crap since Val was born and I catch everything. Not sure why or what to do about it. Our little princess is sound alseep right now, of course. I'm not one of those people who can just lay down and sleep, so there's no point in trying to nap because she'll wake up just as I dose off!! I hope this phase passes soon and that we are both well. (We have to be well this weekend - it's Mardi Gras kick off!!!)
