That time of year....

Poor Veronica just can't seem to catch a break!  She's been sick for nearly two months with congestion and a cough.  I waited it out at first thinking it was just a cold and would resolve on it's own.  After about a month, I brought her to the doctor to discover that in addition to her very red throat, she had not one, but a double ear infection.  After a week on Amoxicillin, she wasn't any better, so we went back to the doctor.  She still had an ear infection, her throat didn't look any better, and she had a touch of bronchitis.  Veronica was given Zithromax and prednisone, so I thought for sure that would knock it out.  Wrong!  She did get better, but she never got completely over it.  She still had the junky cough and congestion.  This morning, she woke up and looked at me with sick eyes.  Moms, you know what I'm talking about.  Puffy face and droopy eyes.  She coughed and coughed.  Veronica said she wanted to go to school, but instead I decided we'd pay the doctor a third visit.  To my surprise, Veronica tested positive for the FLU!  Yes, the dreaded flu.  Sigh.  Of course she's contagious, so now it's just a waiting game to see who else in the household will catch it.  Most likely.... me. For now, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and dosing myself with vitamin C!!
