After having Mia home sick first, now Yodabug has been home for 2 weeks with a chest infection & severe asthma, my mind is boggling at how much snot a 10 yr old boy creates! He's gone thru 6 boxes of tissues since Monday. So for the last few weeks, all you can smell all through the house is Eucalyptus/Peppermint Oil and Vicks. He's been on antibiotics, ventolin as well as steroids and Singulair. This started out as a simple cold 2 1/2 weeks ago. So, if you have a cold & develop a croup type cough, get your arse to the Dr straight away.

Being a sharing soul, he's given the creeping crud to me as well. I feel like absolute crap. I feel so bad I don't even want to look at the computer screen. I am on antibiotics as well, and the Dr upped my pain relief if I want to take more as my joints are hot & excruciatingly painful, the Dr thinks it might just be transient with the flu thing & once I get over the worst, I'll be back in remission.

So, I'll be back when I feel human again.



feelin' - sick & whiney
hearin' - me coughing up a lung!

EVERYone is having this awful illness. poor little kids. If I was running The Ministry Of Good Cheer, I would be distributing those white face masks to everybody. So sick of strangers coughing allover me without covering their mouth with a proper handkerchief - that's how these viruses are spread. bastards! Please all be well soon, much love

Thanks pinkme :-)

Thanks muchly Brownie, this one was horrible and at one stage RCK was all for dragging me to the hospital, but I'm much better now.

I totally agree with you. I actually told someone off at the shop yesterday for not even putting their hand over their mouth. Geeeeez. I'm seriously considering moving to the outback to get away from humans.

Hugs.
