Given the fact each member of the household has been dragged down by one infection or another in recent weeks, it was bound to come around to my turn again. I had tonsillitis a while ago (for the first time ever – I’d always wondered why people complained so much about what was, to my mind, essentially a sore throat. Yes, I won’t make that assumption again) but have managed to ward off the other bugs and viruses my lovely family tried very hard to share with me! Master Eight is still not fully recovered from his own throat infection (not being able to take the medicine without gagging probably doesn’t help), Miss Five has a yucky cough which followed a bit of a temperature spike the other day. Otherwise she seems okay though! And of course, the baby with his ear infection, who is recovering very nicely (he looks forward to his medicine – it must taste nice!). So on Thursday I started sneezing and getting a bit sniffly in the morning. By the afternoon my eyes were burning and my head was stuffy. Yesterday the stuffy head and runny nose continued in full swing, although I went to work and generously shared my germs with everyone there. Today is about the same as Thursday mostly – better than yesterday at least. Fingers crossed I avoid any further symptoms and get all better by Monday!
Beware, the plague!
