Cough, Cough, Bleck!

I have been a blog slacker over the last few weeks due to the germs of preschoolers who refuse to cover their mouths when they cough invading my immune system (and Adam's!). First, I came down with the stomach flu one night suddenly and was home with all kinds of fun issues for a day. My assistant was home sick too with a fever and cold so I only stayed home one day (Monday). I can't bear to leave my little kiddos with two subs for too long (even though they don't cover their mouths!).

The same night I came down with it....Mom did too! It caused a Crohn's flare up and she ended up in the hospital for several days. (Although the doctor's think it was just a coincidence that her Crohn's flared up within hours of me having my "symptoms", Dr. Stephanie believes the stomach virus caused the Crohn's flare up). I wasn't sure if it was food poisoning or a stomach bug until two days after I had it...Adam got it. At least I won't be afraid to eat at Potbelly's again!

As Adam was getting over his stomach bug, I started coming down with a cough that turned into a cough and high fever. So the next Monday, I was home again with a fever of 102.3 and a bad cough. (People at work must have thought I was taking long weekends away somewhere!). I went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotics and cough medicine. I woke up the next day a new woman! Although I probably should have stayed home another day....like I said...it is hard to be away and I don't like actually using sick days for being home sick!

A couple of days after coming down with the respiratory fun....Adam got it too! He didn't get the cough...but he enjoyed several days of a high fever and congestion.

.......but I think we are healthy now. We better be! Morocco is coming fast!

You should go get some prenatal vitamins. They seem to keep me from catching all of those nasty bugs!
