HJ and I have been very lucky so far. Since he has been born, we have only had a few colds to struggle through. Kids at daycare would be sick for days and I would think for sure we were next on the list, but HJ never feel victim. I know breastfeeding helped with that, and I was worried when we stopped that he would get sick.
Then came Friday. I woke up thinking something was not right. Every muscle hurt, my throat was on fire, I could hardly get enough strength to get HJ out of his crib. I struggled, but managed to get him to daycare and myself to work (yes, dumb, I know). After a few hours I realized it was not getting better, just worse. I went right to the doctor. Strep Throat. UGH. They gave me the 2 for 1 special and I was able to get medicine for both HJ and myself. I went home and passed out for a few hours. When I got up, I did what every adult does. I called my mom.
Luckily, she came to the rescue and helped nurse us back to health. HJ still has a fever, but is home with nana today, while I am feeling 85% better and not at home.
Hopefully we will both be back to our old selves in another day or two!
